County recording requirements for incorporating in Alabama

County Judge of Probate fees for Incorporation in Alabama

What are the steps for incorporating in Alabama?

The first step in registering your business in Alabama is to get a Certificate of Name Reservation. You may apply for it on the Secretary of State link below. The filing fee for an Application for Certificate of Name Reservation is $10, or $25 if you need expedited processing. Next, you complete the Domestic Business Corporation Certificate of Formation (articles of incorporation). Finally you deliver it with a recording fee and a filing fee to the county probate office in the county where your registered agent is located and they will record it and forward it with your filing fee of $100 to the Alabama Secretary of State.

  1. Receive Certificate of Name Reservation from AL Secretary of State.
  2. Record your Articles of Incorporation with the County Probate Office.
  3. County Probate Office will forward your documents to the Alabama Secretary of State.

Who needs to record with the county in Alabama?

Only domestic business entities need to deliver their formation documents to the local county probate office for recording prior to filing with the Secretary of State.  Foreign businesses send their Application for Certificate of Authority directly to the Alabama Secretary of State along with the filing fee.

What are the county requirements for incorporating in Alabama?

Every county in Alabama has an elected Judge of Probate.  Alabama requires that all articles of incorporation and articles of organization be delivered first to the county probate office in the county where your registered agent office is located. The Judge of Probate records the filings in the local office and then forwards the original and filing fee to the Alabama Secretary of State.

Alabama has set a statutory fee for the Judge of Probate of $50 for this service, and they may charge more if they wish. Every county in Alabama requires that you send the original formation documents, along with two copies and two checks; one made out to the Judge of Probate, the other made out to the Alabama Secretary of State.

Your Certificate of Name Reservation must also be included. Send the original certificate and two copies. Our office is located in Houston County and they record corporate documents on the day they receive them and forward filings to the Secretary of State Office at least twice per week.

Amendments and Dissolutions must also go first to the local Judge of Probate who filed your original articles.
The Alabama Secretary of State charges a filing fee of $100 for Articles of Incorporation, Articles of Organization and all terminations. Domestic amendments cost $50.
