    • Company name changes

    • Registered agent contact information update

    • A new business address

    • Updated director or member information

    • Changes to the number of authorized shares

    • Business activity changes

    You can change most items listed on the original articles, except the filing date, incorporator, or organizer. Also, you can't change your registered agent through an Articles of Amendment form.

  • What information is required to file an articles of amendment?

    The basic information needed is:

    • Current entity name

    • New entity name (if applicable)

    • Adopted amendments text

    • Adopted amendments dates

      • You'll need this information if there's a delay in the date when the amendment will be adopted. You'll also need the name(s) and address(es) of the individual(s) who are submitting the document. Some states require the member or the board of directors voting to pass these amendments, and many states require the signatures of the president and secretary of the entity.

  • How long does it take to file?

    Filing times vary by jurisdiction. Many jurisdictions offer expedited service for an additional fee.
