How To File An Amendment For A Minnesota Corporation


Step By Step Guide To Minnesota Corporation Amendments

How to file a Minnesota corporation amendment:

Minnesota Secretary of State (SOS) accepts filings made in person, by mail, or online. The Minnesota SOS accepts cash or check for paper filings and check or credit card for electronic filings.

To file in person or by mail, submit the Amendment of Articles of Incorporation to the Minnesota SOS. The form you need to amend your articles of incorporation is in your online account when you sign up for registered agent service with Northwest.

Keep the original copy and submit a legible photocopy to the SOS.

Can you restate the initial articles instead of filing an amendment?

Minnesota SOS accepts both individual amendments and restated articles. If an amendment restates the articles, it must meet the same requirements as a corporate amendment.

Are there any specifics you can or can’t include with a Minnesota corporation amendment?

You can file an amendment to update any information required or permitted to be included in the Articles of Incorporation.

How much does a Minnesota corporation amendment cost?

Domestic Corporation filing fee: $35
Foreign Corporation filing fee: $50
Online express service fee: $10

How long does it take the state to process a Minnesota corporation amendment?

It takes the SOS five to seven business days to process most documents.
Online filings are processed within one business day.
Walked in documents are processed while you wait.

How will the corporation amendment be returned?

The Minnesota SOS sends filed documents and a packing slip back to the Minnesota corporation after they have been filed. The corporation should receive the filed amendment about seven to ten business days after filing.

What state agency do you file an amendment with?

Deliver corporate amendment documents to:

Minnesota Secretary of State – Business Services
Retirement Systems of Minnesota Building
60 Empire Drive, Suite 100
Saint Paul,  MN 55103
(651) 296-2803

Can you change the Minnesota corporation officers or directors on an amendment?

Minnesota corporations do not usually register officers with the SOS. The Minnesota SOS Articles of Incorporation form does not have a space for officers or directors. Minnesota only requires that the CEO be listed on the annual renewal. However, if you submit custom articles of incorporation, you may include officers and directors. Basically, they are not required to be listed in the articles, but you can change them with an amendment.

Can you change the Minnesota registered agent on the amendment?

Yes, you can amend articles to change your Minnesota registered agent.

Can you change the principal office address and/or the mailing address on a corporation amendment?

No, there is not a space for the corporation to update its business address on the amendment form.
