In most states if a business is making any changes to an existing corporation or LLC the state will require an Amendment to be filed. Amendments are official notifications to the state of changes within the organization of your company.
An Amendment would need to be filed for any and all changes to your Articles of Incorporation/Articles of Organization such as:
- Changes to the Company Name
- Changes to the Registered Agent Information
- Company Business Address
- Director or Member Information
- Number of Authorized Shares
- Business Activities of the company
Question: Do I need to file an Amendment if I want to change my company name?
Answer: Yes, in most states, a company is required to file Articles of Amendment to change the name of a corporation or Limited Liability Company (LLC).
Question: What if my company relocates its offices?
Answer: Generally speaking, the address on record with the secretary of state’s office is the registered office address of the company. As such, your company may be required to file Articles of Amendment to change the address of the company if the address that is on record with the state is the address from which you are relocating from.
Question: What if I would like to authorize more shares for my company?
Answer: Generally speaking, since your total authorized shares are listed on your Articles you would need to file an amendment for this type of change.
Question: What if you miss the S Corporation election deadline?
Answer: A late election to be an S Corporation generally is effective for the tax year following the tax year beginning on the date entered on line E of Form 2553. However, relief for a late election may be available if the corporation can show that the failure to file on time was due to reasonable cause.
