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.

The North Carolina Secretary of State’s Office is in the process of correcting transfer of entity information oversights, which occurred during implementation of the current Secretary of State Knowledge Base (SOSKB) system in 1997. The correction will enable business-to-business (B2B) applications to process smoother, enable future application changes to be implemented in a timely manner, and eliminate the need for multiple identification numbers per entity.

The previous system contained information in separate silos for different types of entities causing many entities to be assigned duplicate Secretary of State Identification numbers (SOSID). In order that each business entity in the SOSKB system has a unique SOSID number, it is necessary to reassign a few entity SOSID numbers.

For your convenience a cross-reference Excel spreadsheet is available below.  Only those entities whose SOSID numbers have changed are included on the listing. The reassigned numbers will be effective as of December 1, 2006. Please make note of these changes in your records. Thank you for your attention to this matter.
