On June 29, 2021, the Arizona Corporation Commission added new features to its online service.  These new features are called “owners” and “authorized filers.”

  • Owner.  The owner of an account for an LLC, PLLC or corporation created on the ACC’s online website is the person whose user name and password was used to login to the ACC’s website and who then formed the LLC, PLLC or corporation.  Only companies created online after May 21, 2018, have owners.  Companies created by filing paper forms do not have owners.  ACC staff can add an owner to a company if the company does not have an owner.
  • Authorized Filer.  The owner of the account for an LLC, PLLC or corporation can add one or more people as “authorized filers” for the owner’s company.  Authorized filers can login to the ACC’s website then use the ACC’s online services to make changes to the company for which the person is one of its authorized filers.

For all companies created online after May 21, 2018, only the owner of the company’s ACC account and the company’s authorized filers can file changes to the company using the ACC’s website.  Companies created by filing paper documents do not have an owner.

Here’s the ACC’s info about authorized filers and owners:
