The Latest on the Delaware Division of Corporations

The Delaware Division of Corporations governs business entity formations in the state of Delaware. For millions of businesses registered in the state, they are the agency that processes annual reports and franchise taxes, UCC filings, certificates of good standing, entity formation, amendments, dissolutions and cancellations, mergers, revivals, corrections, changes of agent, conversions and numerous other requirements and filings.
