Iowa Filing Tips
Iowa Frequently Asked Questions
The Iowa Secretary of State does not provide the forms you file to start an Iowa LLC or start an Iowa corporation. We provide you a free Iowa Certificate of Organization template (Articles of Organization) in your online account. We also provide a free Iowa Articles of Incorporation template you can use.
Don’t worry!! When Iowa fails you and lets the lobbying powers of the Iowa Bar prevent you from easily forming a business on your own, we will pick up the pieces. Our free templates meet the minimum requirements the state requires to form your Iowa LLC or Iowa corporation.
All filings do not need original signatures on them.
We recommend faxing in your filing to the IA Secretary of State and putting your credit card info on the cover sheet for the payment. The fax filing information is in your online account immediately after you sign up for service.
How do I change my Iowa registered agent to you?
You can just sign up for our Iowa registered agent service and then use the forms in your online account to make your filing.
