Section 617.1421, Florida Statutes 2008
617.1421 Procedure for and effect of administrative dissolution.--
(1) If the Department of State determines that one or more grounds exist under s. 617.1420 for administratively dissolving a corporation, it shall serve the corporation with written notice of its determination under s. 617.0504(2), stating the grounds therefor.
(2) If the corporation does not correct each ground for dissolution or demonstrate to the reasonable satisfaction of the Department of State that each ground determined by the department does not exist within 60 days after issuance of the notice, the department shall administratively dissolve the corporation by issuing a certificate of dissolution that recites the ground or grounds for dissolution and its effective date.
(3) A corporation administratively dissolved continues its corporate existence but may not conduct any affairs except that necessary to wind up and liquidate its affairs under s. 617.1405 and adopt a plan of distribution of assets pursuant to s. 617.1406.
(4) A director, officer, or agent of a corporation dissolved pursuant to this section, purporting to act on behalf of the corporation, is personally liable for the debts, obligations, and liabilities of the corporation arising from such action and incurred subsequent to the corporation's administrative dissolution only if he or she has actual notice of the administrative dissolution at the time such action is taken; but such liability shall be terminated upon the ratification of such action by the corporation's board of directors or members subsequent to the reinstatement of the corporation.
(5) The administrative dissolution of a corporation does not terminate the authority of its registered agent.
(6) The name of the dissolved corporation shall not be available for assumption or use by another corporation until 1 year after the effective date of dissolution unless the corporation provides the Department of State with an affidavit executed as required by s. 617.01201 permitting the immediate assumption or use of the name by another corporation.
