Business Name Changes

Business Name Changes

Business Name Change Requires Filing Articles of Amendment with the Secretary of State. You do not need a new Employer Identification Number (EIN) from the IRS.

Business owners and other authorized individuals can submit a Name Change and other authorized individuals can submit a Business Name Change with the Secretary of State for their business. The specific action required may vary depending on the type of business.

In some situations, a business name change may require a new Employer (consult your accountant) Identification Number (EIN) or a final return.  See Publication 1635, Understanding Your EIN, to make this determination.
