Connecticut Business Entity Search

How to Conduct a Connecticut Business Entity Search

It is possible to search for a business entity using the Connecticut government website in order to view the business details of any entity on file with the Secretary of State. This tutorial will quickly go over the process of performing such a search using the entity name, the filing number and the business ID as search parameters. We always suggest that those forming or registering a new business first perform a business entity search in order to ensure that their designation is available in the state.
