State offers free on-line index of businesses
The state Department of State has developed an index of New York State corporations and business entities that can be used free of charge at the department's website.
The Corporation and Business Entity Database can be accessed from www.dos.state.ny.us.
"This is a powerful tool for getting basic information on New York businesses, and it will make it easier for many organizations to learn about and reach out to New York's business community," said Business Council President Daniel B. Walsh.
Walsh serves on the Department of State's Corporations Advisory Task Force, which helped shape the new business index.
It includes information on corporations, not-for-profit corporations, limited partnerships, limited-liability companies, and limited-liability partnerships, as well as other miscellaneous businesses.
The index provides the correct current name of the corporation or business entity and current names and addresses of can be used free of charge. It is updated regularly.
The index was developed by the department's Division of Corporations.
