News and Announcements

  • If you are submitting a document for an existing entity, then the first step is to log-in to the system with the entity’s pre-assigned Customer ID Number (CID) and PIN. If you have forgotten the CID or PIN, please contact the Corporations Division at LARA-CSCL-CorpPIN@michigan.gov to obtain that information.

  • The Corporations Online Filing System (COFS) is now operational.

    If you previously submitted a document with an expedited service request and the document was not reviewed within that timeframe the expedited fee will be refunded. We apologize for any inconvenience the interruption of service may have caused.
