(a) A limited liability company or foreign limited liability company may deliver to the Secretary of State for filing a certificate of correction on a form prescribed by the Secretary of State to correct a record previously delivered by the limited liability company or foreign limited liability company to the Secretary of State and filed by the Secretary of State, if at the time of filing the record contained inaccurate information or was defectively signed.
(b) A certificate of correction under subdivision (a) may not state a delayed effective date and shall do all of the following:
(1) State the present name of the limited liability company or foreign limited liability company and the Secretary of State’s file number.
(2) Describe the title to the document to be corrected, including its filing date.
(3) Set forth the name of each party to the document to be corrected.
(4) Specify the inaccurate information and the reason it is inaccurate or the manner in which the signing was defective.
(5) Correct the defective signature or inaccurate information.
(c) When filed by the Secretary of State, a certificate of correction under subdivision (a) is effective retroactively as of the effective date of the record the certificate corrects, but the statement is effective when filed as to persons that previously relied on the uncorrected record and would be adversely affected by the retroactive effect.
