Secretary Chapman Announces New Online Services Available

MONTGOMERY – Today Secretary of State Beth Chapman announces new electronic services for business entity documents are available online on the Secretary of State website

In addition to the very popular Certificate of Existence online function, copies of all scanned documents are now available online as well as the ability to obtain certified copies. These documents include articles of incorporation, amendments, terminations, and more.

There is also a third service available online for a smaller group of business filers. The annual LLP Annual Notice Report required of Registered Limited Liability Partnerships can now be filed online.

"Having these services online is just another way for my office to continue to provide more efficient and effective government to the people of Alabama," stated Secretary Beth Chapman.

All of these new features may be accessed by going to the Business Services section of the Secretary of State website and clicking on Online Services beneath the Business Entities subheading.

The paper method of filing is still available should customers choose to use it.
