  • Purpose: You must provide your business purpose, typically in one or two sentences.
  • Address: Provide the address where your business is to be located. This cannot be a PO Box.
  • Registered Agent: The name and Michigan address of the contact person of your company should be set forth. This also cannot be a PO Box.
