MONTGOMERY, Ala.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Alabama Interactive, in partnership with the Alabama Secretary of State, has introduced a new business filing option available online. Companies can now fully file Domestic and Foreign Limited Liability Partnerships (LLPs) using the business services suite on the Secretary’s official website. LLPs were previously available online as a pre-file option, but implementing the full filings online completely eliminates the need for business owners to make the trip to the local office and stand in line to file their business with the state.
Expanding the filing types available online assists not only the local office by decreasing paper traffic, but also the Secretary of State’s office by increasing processing times and therefore, increasing office efficiencies. The Secretary of State’s goal is to make filing a business in Alabama as convenient as ever, and continuing to expand the list of available filing types does just that.
Business owners can now file the below entity types online:
- Domestic LLCs (Available in Baldwin, Elmore, Jackson, Montgomery and Tuscaloosa counties)
- Domestic Corporations (Available in Baldwin, Elmore, Jackson, Montgomery and Tuscaloosa counties)
- Domestic LLPs
- Foreign LLCs
- Foreign Business Corporations
- Foreign Nonprofit Corporations
- Foreign LLPs
