Provided, however, that nothing herein shall impair the ability of a person to collect on accounts lawfully entered into prior to the expiration of its license.

(D) If an application for a new or renewal license is incomplete, and if the information is not submitted to the division within thirty days after the the date of the last letter of deficiency, the division may consider the application withdrawn. If the application is withdrawn and the person later decides to re-apply, a new application shall be required.
