What is a Connecticut Business Entity?

A Connecticut business entity is a company incorporated under the laws of the state of Connecticut. CSC is a trusted compliance partner and an industry leader for more than 120 years, providing assistance to businesses in meeting deadlines and reducing risk. The dataset provided by the Connecticut Secretary of State, Division of Business Services, contains information about all legal agents. To search for a company, you can either enter its name (ensuring that you type the exact spelling) or its ID.

CSC makes it easy for businesses of all sizes and industries to comply with all licensing obligations. If an agent is a company, the person signing on behalf of the entity must print their name and position next to their signature. The “Business Inquiry” screen will show when the last report was submitted and when the next annual report is due. The unique key value in the first column links this dataset to the Connecticut Business Register - Business Master. The CSC may request certified copies of any business document submitted to the Secretary of State, including training documents, accreditation certificates, apostilles, authentications, and legalizations.

Entities that are not up to date with their annual reports cannot obtain a certificate of legal existence, which may affect their ability to conduct business transactions. If the company has submitted its most recent annual report, it will need to file an interim notice to make any changes to the principals. Under Connecticut law, a business entity can only record one business address and one mailing address. Annual reports collect vital information about companies to ensure that the information on file is accurate. The Employer Identification Number (EIN) is also known as a federal tax identification number and is used to identify a business entity.
