What is A Kansas Amendment?

Reasons Why You Need To File An Amendment

Kansas requires businesses to report changes to the company’s Articles of Incorporation/Organization. Whether your company is an LLC or a corporation, you will have to follow the state regulations. No matter what the purpose of the changes may be, your company has to make sure that they are recorded by the state.

A. Changing The Company Name –

  • LLCs

If an LLC decides to change its business name, it has to ensure that it undergoes the process that the state of Kansas has set. To do this, your company has to submit an amendment. You should also not forget to update all the records of your LLC with the government.

  • Corporations

Some corporations also have to do business under a new company name. No matter what the reason is, your corporation has to go through the amendment process. Additionally, you will also have to update the company name on all official records with the state and government.

B. Changing Members Of The Business – The state of Kansas has to be aware of the members and/or managers of LLCs and officers and directors of corporations that do business in the state. However, Kansas does not allow businesses to change their officials through an amendment. If this is the type of change your company has to do, you can include the updates on your company’s annual report.

C. Changing Address Related To The Business – Your company has to make sure the state knows where your office is located. However, Kansas does not allow businesses to change their principal office and mailing addresses through an amendment. If you want to change any of these pieces of information, you can do so on the annual report of your company.

D. Changing Contact Information –

  • LLCs

You have to keep the contact information of your LLC updated so that the Secretary of State knows how to reach your company. This way, it will be able to easily access your company in case it has legal queries or concerns. The Certificate of Amendment has a section for your phone number.

  • Corporations

If there are changes in the contact information of your Kansas corporation, make sure you inform the state. Doing this will make sure that your company receives alerts and queries related to the business. Include the contact number on the Certificate of Amendment form.

E. Changing The Number Of Shares That A Corporation Is Authorized To Issue – LLCs do not issue stock. So, this change only applies to corporations. If your Kansas corporation decides to make changes to the authorized stock of your corporation, you have to inform the state by filing an amendment.
