SFN 51734 (07-2008) Page 2 INSTRUCTIONS FOR AMENDED CERTIFICATE OF AUTHORITY FOREIGN LIMITED LIABILITY COMPANY APPLICATION A foreign limited liability company holding a Certificate of Authority in the State of North Dakota must promptly apply for an Amended Certificate of Authority: a) When the limited liability company changes its name, or b) When statements on the application for Certificate of Authority or its last Amended Certificate of Authority are no longer correct, or were not correct at the time of filing. An Amended Certificate of Authority is not required if only the following changes occurred: The commercial or noncommercial registered agent, or the address thereof, has changed. This change may be effected by filing the Commercial or Noncommercial Registered Agent Statement of Change. The address of the principal executive office has changed. This address can be changed by notifying the Secretary of State by phone or in writing. The names and addresses of the managers or governors of a limited liability company have changed. Changes to the names and addresses of the managers or governors may be recorded on the next Annual Report required to be filed by the limited liability company. The following numbers correspond to the numbered sections on the front of this form. 1. A. The application for Amended Certificate of Authority MUST be accompanied by the following: Filing fee of $50. (Checks must be payable to "Secretary of State" and must be for U.S. negotiable funds. Payment may also be made by credit card using Visa, Master Card, or Discover.) If amending the name, a current, ORIGINAL Certificate of Fact verifying the name change certified by the government officer of the state or country where Articles of Organization are filed. A copy or certified copy of Articles of Amendment is not acceptable. The certificate must have been certified within 90 days of the date of application. B. The application for Amended Certificate of Authority may be required to be accompanied by the following: Signed consent to use of name and fee of $10 when the limited liability company is already aware of a conflict with its name as amended. Trade Name Registration and fee of $25 when the limited liability company assumes a name, other than its name as amended, for use in North Dakota. 2. Indicate whether the application is being submitted for an Amended Certificate of Authority for a foreign business limited liability company or a foreign professional limited liability company. 3. Indicate whether the Amended Certificate of Authority is required as a result of an amendment to the name or correction of other information disclosed on the application for Certificate of Authority or the last application for Amended Certificate of Authority. 4. Provide the limited liability company name EXACTLY as provided on the Certificate of Authority or last Amended Certificate of Authority issued by the North Dakota Secretary of State. If the name in number 4 is not the same as currently reflected on the Certificate of Authority or the last Amended Certificate of Authority, the name will be corrected by the Secretary of State when the document is received. 5. To properly maintain corporate records, the Federal ID number is requested. Privacy: In compliance with N.D.C.C., Section 10-32-153.1, social security or Federal ID numbers are not disclosed to the public. They are used by the Secretary of State to maintain accurate limited liability company files. Therefore, while voluntary disclosure is requested, failure to do so will not result in rejection of the application. 6. If the name is being amended, provide the correct limited liability company name as amended in the state or country of organization. Punctuation and abbreviations must be consistent with those in the name on the certificate from the government officer of the state or country where Articles of Organization are filed. If the name in number 6 is not the same as reflected on the Certificate of Fact, the name will be corrected by the Secretary of State when the document is received. 7. Provide the trade name and the Trade Name Registration form with $25 if the limited liability company cannot use its amended name because: a) The limited liability company name is not in the form as required of a limited liability company in North Dakota. The name must be in the English language or any other language expressed in English letters or characters. The name must include the words "limited liability company" or the abbreviation "L.L.C." or "LLC". If a foreign limited liability company's name does not contain these words or one of the abbreviations, the limited liability company must elect one to be used in North Dakota. The application must be rejected if an election is not made and the limited liability company name in number 4 is not in compliance with this requirement. b) The name of a foreign professional limited liability company shall contain words or abbreviations required or authorized by the laws of the jurisdiction in which it is organized. For reference, see N.D.C.C., Sections 10-32-136 or 10-31-05. c) The North Dakota Secretary of State has notified the limited liability company that its amended name is the same as or deceptively similar to a name already registered and the limited liability company is unable to obtain consent to use of name from the previous filer or a certified copy of a final decree of a court of competent jurisdiction establishing prior right of this limited liability company to use of the amended name in North Dakota. North Dakota law provides that a limited liability company name may not be the same as, or deceptively similar to, a name previously registered with the Secretary of State. The name may be used if the limited liability company obtains a court decree or signed consent to use of name that is submitted with a fee of $10. The applicant must draft the consent to use of name since a form for the consent is not prescribed by the Secretary of State. If consent to use of name cannot be obtained, a trade name (dba) must be elected. d) The limited liability company does not wish to use or protect its amended name in North Dakota and chooses to use a trade name instead. TRADE NAMES: A limited liability company may choose to use any trade name (dba) in addition to its limited liability company name in North Dakota. The trade name must be registered with the Secretary of State. However, the trade name should not be provided in number 5, except as described above. Instead, complete and attach the Trade Name Registration and fee of $25 for each assumed name. Contact the Secretary of State's office for the Trade Name Registration form. 8. Provide a complete address of the executive office of the limited liability company, wherever located. In this section, an address must include a street or rural address, a postal box number if applicable, and the city, state and zip code with 4 digit extension. This address cannot only be a post office box number. 9. Identify the state or country in which the limited liability company is organized. If the state or country of origin in number 9 is not the same as reflected on the Certificate of Authority as issued, the state or country will be corrected by the Secretary of State when the document is received.
