Idaho Secretary of State Corporation Entity Search

Step 2 – Search for a corporation by name, city, organizational ID/Filing Number, registered agent name, registered agent city, or date of origination. If you decide to query by name make sure to add as many keywords as possible as the system will purge all business entities that contain the terms entered.

Step 3 – This is the tough part, sorting through your results. The Secretary of State does help us out by giving us a preview of the entity’s organizational ID, filing date, and status. Find your desired corporation and click on the View Details link.

Step 4 – You have reached the Entity Description Page and the conclusion of your search. From here you may be able to obtain the corporation’s: type of business, state of origin, date of incorporation, registered agent and address, number of stock shares, and all previously filed documents.
