Corporation Division


    Welcome to the Corporation Division



    Annual Report ALERT! (Some Annual Report reminder notices contained
    the wrong Business ID Number).  Please read below.

    A reminder to file the 2014 annual report was mailed Jan. 1, 2014.  Please be advised if your business name starts with the letter “T” (including those business names that begin with the word "The") and continuing through the end of the alphabet, your annual report reminder notice may contain the wrong Business Identification Number (Business ID number).  A corrected annual report reminder notice will be mailed to those affected businesses with their correct Business ID number. 

    You may look up the correct Business ID number on our website using our Business Name Lookup tool or you may call the office at 603-271-3246. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
