Welcome to the Corporations Division
The Corporations Division promotes economic development and growth by facilitating the formation of business entities in Michigan. The Division provides services that enable corporations, limited partnerships, limited liability companies, and limited liability partnerships to be formed, and for foreign entities to obtain a certificate of authority to transact business.
We strongly encourage you conduct business with us online through our Corporations Online Filing System (COFS) at www.michigan.gov/corpfileonline, instead of by U.S. mail, FedEx, or UPS.
