How do I report a merger?

Commercial, Residential and Mold Remediation merger fee is $100.
Home Improvement Registration merger fee is $40.

If the surviving entity is currently licensed, the following must be submitted prior to updating the license/registration:

  1. Copy of the signed, executed plan of merger;
  2. Must notify the Louisiana Secretary of State of the merger and the merger must be reflected on their website. (This is required even for out-of-state companies.);
  3. Payment for the appropriate merger fee (see above); Cash cannot be accepted;
  4. Cover letter with license/registration number(s), contact person, and contact telephone number, including extension.

Note: If the surviving entity is not a licensed business entity with the state of Louisiana, the surviving entity must submit a new application and the non-surviving entity’s license will be terminated. (We cannot accept applications by email or fax.)

To submit the documents and credit card info for payment by email, please email to mhurst@lslbc.louisiana.gov.
