Corporation/LLC Search/Certificate of Good Standing
You may search the Corporation/LLC Database by file number or name.
You may view a File Detail Report on a corporation or limited liability company, obtain a Certificate of Good Standing on an existing entity, or conduct a preliminary search on the availability of a new company name. The database is updated in real time.
When searching the availability of a new company name, the proposed name must be distinguishable from any other corporation/LLC name on file. If the requested name is not currently registered, the search will result in no records being found. Therefore, the requested corporation/LLC name is available. Please be advised that this database check is a preliminary check and final determination of corporation/LLC name availability is determined by the Secretary of State’s office and in compliance with Illinois statutes.
