What are Certified Copies?

Certified copies are a true and correct copy of corporate filings, including Articles, amendments, mergers, annual reports, and more. The Department of State typically issues these copies with a stamp, endorsement, or certificate.

Certified copies are often required to secure a bank loan, apply for a certificate of authority, and obtain business licenses.

What documents can be certified?

You can typically have most corporate filings certified, including:

  • Articles of formation
  • Articles of amendment
  • Certificate of authority
  • Mergers
  • Annual filings, such as annual reports
  • Fictitious name or DBA registration
  • Dissolution and withdrawals

Applying for a certificate of authority?

If you need certified copies because you are applying for authority to transact business in a new state, let us help you! As part of our Foreign Qualification service, we will apply for and obtain your certificate of authority. If the foreign state requires certified copies or certificates of existence, then we will obtain those as part of the process.
