In April, the North Carolina Medical Board notified the NC Secretary of State’s office that it had suspended 304 Professional Corporations and PLLCs due to failure to renew business registration by Dec. 31, 2011, as required by NC law.

  • Businesses that have been suspended for less than one year will be allowed to reinstate by completing the online registration after their file is reopened. Fees will include the past due registration fee plus a $10 late fee.

  • Businesses that have been suspended for more than one year must submit certain notarized statements to recertify and register with NCMB. These businesses are subject to a recertification fee, plus the $10 late fee and a $25 registration fee for each year they failed to register.
