How to Find Business Records in Vermont State

Vermont State Business Records

The Vermont Secretary of State’s website allows anyone to search Vermont business records in one of three ways -- searching by business name, by an individual’s name, or by the availability of a business name. Below you will find a short tutorial on how to search using each of these methods.

Searching the Corporate Database by Business Name

1. Go to the Vermont Secretary of State’s website at http://www.sec.state.vt.us/soshome.htm .

2. On the left side menu, select the ‘Corporations’ option (second one down).

3. On the left hand side menu, there will be several inks. Scroll all the way down until you see the ‘Search Corps Databases’ link (sixth one up from the bottom).

4. You will come to a form where you can enter the business name. Enter in the business name and click ‘Retrieve Information’.

5. If your exact name is not found, you will receive a list of all the businesses in Vermont whose name begins that same letter as the name you searched for. So, if you type in ‘Wal-Mart’, you will receive a list that includes Walnut Street Securities, Weston Family Limited Partnership, and Waterpro Supplies Corporation. Your results will be categorized by corporations, trade names, LLCs, partnerships, reservations, and registrations.

6. When you find the company you are looking for, click on their name. This will take you to their information page which may list different types of information depending on what type of registration it is.

Searching the Corporate Database by an Individual’s Name

This will help you locate a business based on the name of a person who may be involved with that business in some way.

1. Go to the Vermont Secretary of State’s website at http://www.sec.state.vt.us/soshome.htm .

2. On the left side menu, select the ‘Corporations’ option (second one down).

3. On the left hand side menu, there will be several links. Scroll all the way down until you see the ‘Individual Person Search’ link (fifth one up from the bottom).

4. This will take you to a form where you can type on the person’s first and/or last name (the last name must be specified).

5. You will receive a list of everyone in the database that matches your search criteria. Highlight the person’s name and click ‘Retrieve Information’.

6. The information page for the business that is associated with that person will automatically display.

Searching the Corporate Database by Name Availability

1. Go to the Vermont Secretary of State’s website at http://www.sec.state.vt.us/soshome.htm .

2. On the left side menu, select the ‘Corporations’ option (second one down).

3. On the left hand side menu, there will be several inks. Scroll all the way down until you see the ‘Search Name Availability’ link (fourth one up from the bottom).

4. You will be taken to a page that has an overview of the corporation keyword search process. Read the information and click ‘GO TO THE KEYWORD SEARCH’.

5. You will be taken to a page which will outline the search rules. It will also include a form where you can type in the business name (keyword).

6. If the name has already been used, you will instantly be taken to that company’s information page. Otherwise, it will say that the term is not found and you will know that the name is available. This option will show only active and terminated records, not inactive ones since those names would also be available.

Each of these search options will lead to the same company information page. On this information page, you may be able to find out each company’s name, status, file number, type, incorporation/registration date, state, fiscal month end, registered agent, address, and a list of their officers. If you are looking at reservations, it will also include why the name was reserved and when the reservation ends. Additionally, there will also be a link to the information contact, at the bottom of each page, to send any questions or concerns you may have about the listing.
