Amend your Corporation, LLC, or Nonprofit
Most businesses and nonprofits undergo a number of changes throughout the life of their entity. When the time comes to make a change, it is important to update your entity’s legal registration to reflect these changes.
Changing the name of an entity or changing the address of an entity are the most common reasons for amending a registration, but filing an amendment may also be required when the ownership structure or officers of an entity change.
Amendments are typically filed in the state of formation, however, entities with a registration in multiple states may need to amend registrations in multiple jurisdictions. Amendment applications usually vary by entity type and sometimes vary by the type of information being amended.

Amendments are typically filed in the state of formation. However, if your business is registered in other states, you may need to amend in multiple states.
