What are Articles of Incorporation?

A corporation's "Articles of Incorporation" is the main filing document which begins the corporation's existence under state law. Once filed, the corporation comes into existence.

The level of complexity for a corporation's Articles of Incorporation can range from very simple to extremely complex. Generally, most jurisdictions require Articles of Incorporation to contain, at a minimum, information about the Corporate Name, the Registered Agent, and the Corporation's business address. Requirements vary by state.
