Shares of stock represent ownership of the corporation. Where no shares are issued, no individual owns the corporation. Thus, shares must be issued to those individuals who will own the corporation. While most states have created many exceptions and exemptions from registering a stock issuance with the state or with the SEC for most small businesses, it may be wise to contact the appropriate entity to determine whether you must file a notice of stock issuance on a state or federal level.
Because we are an administrative service, our company CANNOT be involved with your corporation's stock issuance. For help regarding your corporation's stock issuance, please contact a licensed attorney or the appropriate state entity.
