Answers to Frequently Asked Questions
When do we need to file an amendment?
As your organization grows and its information changes, you may need to amend its information on file with the state. Common reasons for amendment include changes to formation documents, legal name, address, key personnel, or management structure.
Where is the amendment filed?
Generally, you file amendments in the state of formation. Organizations registered in multiple states may need to file articles of amendment in several jurisdictions.
When can we amend my organization?
Amendments can be filed at any time, though the organization must be in good standing with the state at the time of amendment. Please visit our reinstatement page if you need assistance reinstating your organization to good standing.
After receiving our articles of amendment, will we need to update other records?
Generally, yes. Aside from your internal organization records, vendor accounts, etc., you may also need to update other state and federal agencies. Nonprofits may need to report amendments to the IRS.
Are there other steps for doing a name change in many states?
If you're amending your organization's name in many states, there is a risk that the new name you've chosen will only be available in some states. Our name reservation service allows you to hold the name until the amendment paperwork can be approved. We can also manage your doing-business-as (DBA) registration process to enable you to operate under your new name even before filing the amendments.
Can I file an amendment to change my entity type?
Generally, no. You might be looking for entity conversion services. Certain states allow entities to convert from one organization type to another without filing dissolution and formation documents. For example, an LLC may be converted into a corporation, or a nonprofit corporation may be converted into an LLC in some states.
