The centerpiece of the incorporation process is the Articles of Incorporation.
Filing Articles of Incorporation with the Secretary of State (or another state agency which is responsible for Corporations) brings a Corporation to life and begins the process of organizing your business.
- PCF can draft Articles of Incorporation that are specific to your business and file them with the Secretary of State.
Should the need arise, PCF can also draft and file amendments to your Articles of Incorporation.
The Articles of Incorporation are usually a basic form that contains information about your corporation, the stock it issues, its appointed representative, and its organizers.
It is filed with a state agency, usually the Secretary of State, which is responsible for Corporations.
The Articles of Incorporation go by different names in some states (see the list below).
You may subsequently amend the Articles of Incorporation for your business but you will have to pay a fee to the Secretary of State in order to make the changes official.
