Amending Corporate Information

Amending Corporate Information

Occasionally, a corporation will find that its documents do not meet its current needs. To solve this, they can be amended, but the amendments must be done in compliance with the laws of your state of incorporation. Some changes may be required by law to be reported to the Secretary of State in the state where the corporation is headquarted. This is usually done by filing a document called an Articles of Amendment. Changing the corporation's registered agent, for example, may require an article of amendment to be filed. Other changes are internal, affecting only the corproation itself. These sorts of changes are usually made by updating the corporation's bylaws.
