Corporations, limited liability companies, and limited partnerships in Georgia are formed by filing with the Corporations Division. Some foreign (out-of-state) entities which do business in Georgia also must file with the Corporations Division. Although the information provided on this site aids in the process of forming a business entity, the question of whether a particular entity should be formed can be complex, so the Corporations Division recommends consultation with an attorney and an accountant. The Corporations Division serves as custodian of the filings and provides copies and certifications of documents. It does not provide legal advice and does not have the authority to intervene in disputes between consumers and businesses, between businesses, or between shareholders, members, officers, or other persons involved in an enterprise.
