Business Entities

In 1850, legislation authorized the Alabama Secretary of State to file and certify articles of incorporation for road construction companies and the Corporations Division was born. In the years that followed, steamship, railroad, banks, and insurance companies were required to file articles or charters of incorporation with the Secretary of State. In time, the Office of the Secretary of State became the depository for various entity records and the need for a Business Entity section was evident. Today, the Business Entity Division, staffed by 8 employees, receives some 500 requests each day for information regarding its 250,000 filings.

The Business Entity Division operates as a depository for records of domestic entities and foreign entities that have qualified to transact business in Alabama. The types of entities we serve include For-Profit Corporations, Non-Profit Corporations, Limited Liability Companies, Limited Partnerships, Registered Limited Liability Partnerships, and Limited Liability Limited Partnerships.

When we can assist you, drop by our office or give our Business Entities Division a call at 334-242-5324 between 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. (central standard time). The Secretary of State Business Entities Division is located at 100 North Union Street in Suite 770. We are here to serve.
