The Iowa Secretary of State's Office maintains a database of information on every business which has incorporated in the state of Iowa. This includes information on over 200,000 business entities, over 500,000 officers of those business entities, over one million filings from those business entities, and additional information regarding stock, addresses, previous names, agents, etc. Information is also maintained on trademarks registered with our office. All this information can be accessed from this web site.
When you enter a name to search for, certain refinements are made to that string. For instance, the noise words "THE" and "AN" are stripped off the front of the string, and words like "CORPORATION" or "INC" are stripped off the end. These refinements are done to help ensure that the business entity names you are searching for are found.
If you know the business entity number assigned to the company by our office, you may enter that number instead.
Searches will return a maximum of 1000 results. For additional help or explanation, contact our Customer Service area at 515-281-5204.
