Texas state company registry
Corporations and Companies
As you probably already know, each state has different rules as to what constitutes a regulated business entity and where those entities should register. Most states require registration of corporations, limited liability companies (LLCs) and limited liability partnerships (LLPS) at the Secretary of State Office. Other states also require limited partnerships to file, and others have even more requirements, such as churches, associations, limited liability limited partnerships, trade names, trusts, DBAs, and banks. We’ve listed the statewide registries here for each state, but some states (like California, Texas, and Michigan) require “Fictitious” or “Assumed” business name filings. In those states sole proprietorships or partnerships are filed with the county, but in other states they may be filed with the state or the county recorder or clerk.
