If the company at which one works has undergone a merger with another firm, there are certain things that one needs to do in order to ensure that one's contractor's license is updated with the Louisiana Licensing Board for Contractors. A copy of the signed plan of merger that has been executed is necessary. If the merger was registered outside of the state of Louisiana, one also will need a copy of the certificate from the domiciliary Secretary of State. This will be needed as evidence to reflect registration of the merger outside of the state. If the merger took place within the state, then one will need a copy of the amendment to the company's charter to prove registration of the merger with the Louisiana Secretary of State's office.
If the company is incorporated, then one will need a copy of the corporation's Board of Directors' meeting minutes that reference authorization of the merger. Since a license is nontransferable, if the company is going to be the non-surviving entity as a result of the merger and wishes to continue working under its current license number, then it must merge into a parent or a subsidiary in order to continue working under that same license number.
