Drafting your Corporate documents

The documents you need

The type of company: The documents you need will vary based on the type of company you created (e.g. an LLC has different documents than a partnership)
Your state: What it takes to create a corporation is up to your state so see what your state requires
Choosing a corporate type: If you’re not sure what kind of company to start, go talk to your local Small Business Development Center
