(1) A limited partnership that has been administratively dissolved under s. 620.1809 may apply to the Department of State for reinstatement at any time after the effective date of dissolution. The limited partnership must submit a form of reinstatement prescribed and furnished by the Department of State together with all fees then owed by the limited partnership, computed at a rate provided by law at the time the limited partnership applies for reinstatement.
(2) As an alternative to submitting the form of reinstatement referred to in subsection (1), the limited partnership may submit a current annual report, signed by its registered agent and a general partner, which contains the same information described in subsection (1).
(3) If the Department of State determines that the application for reinstatement, or current annual report described in subsection (2), contains the information required by subsection (1) and that the information is correct, the Department of State shall reinstate the limited partnership.
(4) When the reinstatement becomes effective, the reinstatement relates back to and takes effect as of the effective date of the administrative dissolution, and the limited partnership may resume its activities as if the administrative dissolution had never occurred.
