The North Carolina Secretary of State’s office would like to share the following announcements:

New Secretary of State Website Design is On the Way

Look for our new www.sosnc.gov  website design this fall.

We are updating the look and feel of our website to improve your experience. The new website design, created under the statewide Digital Commons initiative, features:

  • Improved navigation,
  • Modern design,
  • Mobile device optimization, and More!

We will provide additional information about the roll-out of the new design on our current website front page.  We will also be supplying information about the roll-out in a variety of other ways over the coming months.

Our Corporations Division is now Business Registration

On Sept. 1, the Corporations Division began rebranding its name to the Business Registration Division. This improvement is in response to growing needs of the business community. Business Corporations now represent a minority of the entities we administer, given the growth of limited liability companies, nonprofit corporations, and partnerships.

The new title should minimize confusion about the name and make internet searches for information easier. This change will be spreading across all N.C. Secretary of State materials and platforms in the weeks ahead.

So please, make a note: The Business Registration Division is now your destination for your business registration needs in North Carolina.  Your bookmarks do not need to change.
