CORPORATIONS AND BUSINESS FILING FORMS

Before submitting a form for filing, be sure to read information about the specific type of filling on the Business Gateway Service site. Information concerning general filing instructions, general service options, fees and the fax filing option is also available.

Remember that it is best to seek out legal advice before submitting a form. The forms that the Division of Revenue provides are for your convenience. However, they do not replace the need for competent legal advice.
  1. FORMATION DOCUMENTS -- These are "initial" filings such as Certificates of Incorporation, Certificates of Formation, etc. for all domestic (in-state) business entities filed with the Treasurer.
  2. FOREIGN AUTHORIZATIONS/REGISTRATIONS -- These are "initial" filings for all foreign (out-of-state) business entities filed with the Treasurer.
  3. CHANGES OF REGISTERED AGENT/OFFICE -- These filings change the registered agent and/or office for a domestic or foreign business entity on file with the Treasurer.
  4. AMENDMENTS (NON-COMPLEX, INCLUDING NAME CHANGES) AND CORRECTIONS -- Amendment filings change substantive portions of a previously filed certificate -- for example changing the business entity name. Correction filings remedy errors made in previously filed certificates.
  5. MERGER/CONSOLIDATIONS AND RESTATED CERTIFICATES -- These filings provide a record of merger/consolidation actions and provide a means of integrating and restating certificates that have been amended over the course of time.
  6. DISSOLUTIONS, CANCELLATIONS AND WITHDRAWALS -- These filings are used to record the voluntary "de-activation" of business entities.
  7. ALTERNATE NAMES -- These filings secure the business entity's right to use an alternate or fictitious name -- for example, "ABC, Inc." trading or doing business as "XYZ."
  8. NAME RESERVATIONS -- These filings are used to reserve exclusive rights to a business name for a limited period of time.
