    How do I fill out my Certificate of Incorporation in New York?
    Notice: Undefined property: stdClass::$post_date in /var/www/webapp/ui/mlb_faq.php on line 96

    The standard form Certificate of Incorporation requires the incorporators to set out the corporate name, the county in which the office of the corporation is to be located, the total number of shares which the corporation shall have authority to issue and a statement of the par value of each share or a statement that the shares are without par value, a mailing address for the corporation, and the signature, name, and address of the incorporator(s). If a share has no par value, this means that it can be sold at any price. Incorporators must be natural persons who are 18 years or older. There is a generic statement on the standard form Certificate of Incorporation relating to the purpose of the business. This is sufficient unless the business' purpose is one that is restricted. See the table below to see if your corporate purpose is one that is restricted. If it is, you will need to attain the necessary consent to incorporate such a business.
