From now until December 31, 2017, entities who received these Certificates of Renewal will be eligible to renew their assumed names online for five years. Eligible entities include corporations, limited liability companies and limited partnerships.
As of now, all corporations, limited liability companies, and limited partnerships, using an assumed name in a joint venture or partnership must file the assumed name renewal simultaneously.
