Indiana Secretary of State Business Entity Search

To search for LLCs in the state of Indiana, head to the Indiana Secretary of State Public Business Search found here. Businesses can be searched for by using up to five different criteria. Additionally, the search tool has the option for an Advanced Search to be conducted. This can narrow down the search pool by excluding LLCs that don’t have the required Type, Status, or Name Type. Users that are planning on opening an LLC can also use the tool to search for the availability of entity names in Indiana.

How to Search

Step 1 – Head to the following web address to begin: https://bsd.sos.in.gov/publicbusinesssearch. Once at the page, search by one of the following five parameters:

  • Business Name
  • Business ID
  • Filing Number
  • Registered Agent Name
  • Incorporator or Principal Name

The user can also utilize the Advanced Search if they know the specifics of the LLC(s) that they are searching for.
