What is an amendment?
What changes can be made?
How to request it

Once the company is incorporated, the Articles of Organization are issued for an LLC and the Articles of Incorporation for a Corporation, among other documents. These obtain the essential information of any company, information that may be changed at the choice of the partner. For this, it is necessary to make an application to the state in order to officially make these modifications, a process known as an amendment. 

Usually in an amendment you can modify:

  • The business name.
  • The registered agent, or make an update on it.
  • The address of the company.
  • Member information.

Keep in mind that some changes will not be allowed in certain states of the country. If you want more information about this process, contact us.

Prodezk process this request for you. Taking into account that the amendments in each state work differently and there is no standard in terms of formats and process, these are the requirements:

  • Articles of organization or incorporation, 
  • Certificate of Status
  • Identification documents of the partners
  • Detailed information about the modification to be made.
