ITEM 1:   Choose a Business Name and Type

First, choose the type of business entity you wish to file from the list below.

In general, be aware that the choice of an entity type and effective date for filing may have significant tax/employer implications. We recommend that you consult with a tax professional and/or attorney for guidance on these matters. All legal entities are subject to annual report filing requirements. Corporations will also be subject to the corporation business tax from the date of formation/authorization to the legal date of dissolution/withdrawal.

New Jersey Benefit Corporations may not use this online service and must submit paper incorporation documents.

Next, enter the proposed name of the business at this point. DO NOT enter a designator such Corp., Ltd., LLC, Etc. You will add the designator later in the filing process.
