Secretary of State Database Expansion

Purpose of bulletin

To notify staff that on September 5, 2012, the Secretary of State (SOS) database will be expanded to include information for Limited Liability Companies (LLCs) and Limited Partnerships (LPs).

Background

FTB staff use the SOS database to access corporation information. The following information will now be available for LLCs and LPs:

  • LLC and LP status
  • Most currently filed Statement of Domestic Stock
  • California mailing address information
  • Officer and agent information
  • Type of business activity in California

We will install the LLC and LP database on September 5, 2012.  Staff that currently has access to the SOS corporation database will automatically have access to the LLC and LP database.

Training

Each unit is responsible for providing support and training as needed for their staff.
