Filings Backlog - In an effort to prioritize workflow to address the backlog, we are temporarily changing our telephone customer service hours to 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. for our division.
Corporate filings processing time is 30 - 35 business days. To determine if your filing has been processed, please go to “Corporate Search” to do a corporate name lookup. When you are on the Information Summary page, you can see additional filing information by scrolling to the bottom of the page and selecting “view list of filings”. Please note, that expedited corporate filing images may not be available for review and download until the following business day.
