Arizona Business Overview

The Basics

When you decide to register a business in Arizona we can assist by preparing the necessary documents and paying the required fees.  We will do the work to make sure that your name is available, prepare the articles, and pay the required fees to form your company.  Once your filing is submitted to the Division of Corporations, we follow up with the state office to ensure that it gets approved and resolve any issues with the submission.  We worry about the filing so that you do not have to. We’ll also include website, email, and phone service at no additional upfront cost so you can get on the web and start fielding client calls in minutes.

Business Maintenance

All Arizona Corporations and LLCs Must File: 

  • Articles of Incorporation
    Arizona corporations and LLCs are formed by filing the Articles of Incorporation or Articles of Organization with the Arizona Corporation Commission. It costs $60 to form an Arizona corporation or $50 for an Arizona LLC ($85 with state expediting fees).
  • Beneficial Ownership Information Report
    Nearly all businesses formed by filing with the state of Arizona must file a federal Beneficial Ownership Information (BOI) Report with the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) following business formation. You can file online through FinCEN at no cost. Or, take advantage of our professional BOI report filing service for just $9.
  • Annual Report
    Arizona corporations must file annual reports with the AZCC. There is a $40 fee to file the Arizona annual report and it can be done online. The report is due by the corporation’s incorporation anniversary each year. Arizona LLCs do not file annual reports.
