Before you register your company, you will want to check to make sure the name you plan to use is not being used by another company. Search the Corporation Commission database.
Once you have chosen the type of entity you want to establish, you’ll register that with the Arizona Secretary of State. Sole proprietors using a name other than their own legal name will need to file a trade name with the Arizona Secretary of State for $10.
Other entities will file a certificate of limited partnership, qualification to be a limited liability partnership, articles of organization or articles of incorporation with the Secretary of State. It costs $10 plus $3 per page for LPs, LLPs and LLLPs; $50 for LLCs and $60 for corporations.
LP, LLP and LLLP forms can be mailed to:
