Compliance and legal requirements to start a business

From start-up to success, every company has a lifecycle.  At each step, you need to master compliance requirements in order to grow. And that’s where CT Corporation comes in. 

We keep you on top of state regulation, every step of the way. From the starting line, CT sets your company up the right way, helping you to prepare and file incorporation forms, reserve your business name and trademark, and obtain an EIN number so you can open a bank account for your business. You’ll also need a registered agent to receive compliance information and legal correspondence. CT’s prompt and proper handling of these requirements helps you avoid fines and penalties, and protect your personal assets.

Running a business also means managing business licenses, annual reports, tax information, and much more. CT helps you monitor due dates and complete and file your legal documents. We track over 4,000 pieces of state and federal legislation, and monitor over 10,000 court and government agency web pages per week, so you’ll always be the first to know if your requirements change. 

As your business grows, you may want to expand, and you’ll need to do it the right way. Wherever your business takes you, CT will support you with foreign qualifications, conversions, mergers, and other filings. Our solutions, services, and specialists are ready to help.

We’re proud of having the best service and most experience in the industry. As a CT customer, you benefit from this no matter the size of your business: CT supports more than 300,000 small businesses, 75% of Fortune 1000 companies and 70% of the National Law Journal Top 250 law firms. There aren’t any problems we haven’t solved.

Wherever you are in your business lifecycle—starting, running, or growing—CT helps you maintain good standing.
