Business Entity Filings

IMPORTANT NOTICE Due to an unusually high volume of documents being received in our corporate processing center, we are currently experiencing delays in the filing process. Documents could take at least 15 business days to complete. Please do not send duplicate documents, as that will further delay the process. We apologize for any inconvenience this might cause and are working diligently to alleviate this problem as quickly as possible.

For additional information and requirements please see the corresponding section in our forms and fees schedule.

Before sending please be sure the document you are filing:

  • Is the proper one for your business needs
  • Complies with the relevant Iowa Code sections
  • Contains all required signatures

Reminder: Credit card payment arrangement must be made the same business day the filing is submitted or the filing will be rejected.

Note: The Secretary of State's Office is a filing repository and does not determine the authority of a filer to make a submission. It is the responsibility of authorized filers to frequently check the status of filings on the Web site to ensure protection against submissions by an unauthorized party. If you determine that a submission was not authorized, it is your responsibility to seek legal action to protect your status.
