Please be advised that extreme weather conditions are expected in the Triangle area Thursday, February 26, 2015, that will likely prevent staff from traveling to their work stations in Raleigh. Due to lingering effects of the winter storm, we expect to continue to be at reduced staffing levels on Friday, February 27 and until travel conditions improve in the metro-Triangle area. If you need to visit our offices for service, we strongly encourage you to call (919) 807-2225 before making the trip to ensure that we have staff on hand to meet your needs. We apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause.

Welcome to the new corporations search page. We now offer 'Real Time' filing information. What does that mean to you? 'Real Time' means that information on filings will be available on the web page the moment they happen. In addition, limited partnership information is now part of the new system. You will now be able to search all business entities that are on file with the North Carolina Corporations Division.

Because this division examines hundreds of documents per day, requesting a search of records for an extended date range will result in a slower response time. Limiting that range per search will enable you to receive the requested information much quicker.

When searching, please note that corporations with a status other than current-active will be returned and additional records for corporations with previous or home state names will be returned as well. The record count displayed may be inflated because of the preceeding reasons.
