What if the CEO name changes before the end of the year?

Q: What if I made an error while entering my annual registration?
A:
You can wait until the following year when your annual renewal is due and update the information at that time.  If you want the change made immediately, you can file Articles of Amendment or if an error was made in the initial filing, Articles of Correction.  A fee is required for Articles of Amendment or Articles of Correction and can be done online.
Q: What if I keep getting invalid file number?
A:

Verify you are using the correct alphabetical characters in the file number you are entering.  

For Example:

  • 12O-213 the O needs to be entered as an (alpha) O not a zero.
  • O-982 the O needs to be entered as an (alpha) O not a zero.
  • 2L-548 the L needs to be entered as an L not a one.
  • 2I-548 the I needs to be entered as an I not a one.
  • 120314-2 this is  entered with all numeric numbers.
Q: What if the CEO name changes before the end of the year?

You are required to file an annual registration only once a year.  You may update your CEO name on the annual registration that you file next year.
