Search Business Filings

Corporation Name: 

Registered Agent:    
Please do not use punctuation in your search - such as ' , " , @, etc. - as this may return an error.  If "a" or "the" is used as an article at the beginning of a business name (e.g., A Business Name or The Business Name), do not include the article in the search. Try using partial names to perform the search - i.e. "my brother" instead of "my brother's company."  For registered agent searches, try using the first name and last name with the wild card "%" between them (e.g., John%Smith).  This prevents the middle name or initial from obscuring the search results.

Disclaimer: The South Carolina Secretary of State’s Business Filings database is provided as a convenience to our customers to research information on business entities filed with our office. Updates are uploaded every 48 hours. Users are advised that the Secretary of State, the State of South Carolina or any agency, officer or employee of the State of South Carolina does not guarantee the accuracy, reliability or timeliness of such information, as it is the responsibility of the business entity to inform the Secretary of State of any updated information. While every effort is made to insure the reliability of this information, portions may be incorrect or not current. Any person or entity who relies on information obtained from this database does so at his own risk.

Welcome to the online Business Filings search page. With this page you can search for business entities by company name or by registered agent. You may use our online search or call the Business Filings Division at (803) 734-2158 to see if a company is in good standing or to learn the name and address of the registered agent of the entity. Images of filed documents are not yet available online. You will still need to contact our office to request a copy of a filed document. Please note, the Secretary of State’s Office does not have the names or addresses of a company’s officers or directors. For this information, please contact the Department of Revenue at (803) 896-1730.

Information on the Business Filings database reflects the information most recently filed with the Secretary of State’s Office. It is important to note that the addresses on the Website are those of the registered agent and not that of the business. If your filing information has changed, you must file the appropriate form with our office to update the information. The Secretary of State has no authority to update this information without the proper form and filing fee. We cannot accept change requests by email or phone. To access our forms, please visit our Library of Forms and Fees page.
