Lookup a Business Entity

Step 1 – Start

Search any type of business entity in Connecticut (corporation, LLC, partnership, etc.) by using the Concord  Secretary of State’s Website. You will be able to preform your search by NameBusiness ID, or Filing Number.

The most popular way to lookup a business is by Name. Although, the system will only return all exact matching entities to your keywords entered. If you only know the keywords the corporation begins with, you must add an asterisk (*) to the last letter of the last keyword. After entering you will get to the results page (As Seen Below).

Step 2 – Choose Your Entity
