Arizona Corporation: Forming a Business
If you want to withdraw your application for incorporation, you need to file a withdrawal termination. Once you file withdrawal termination, your corporation will get a filed copy of the dissolution articles.
A Limited Liability Company will get a termination certificate when all the documents are reviewed. In Arizona, corporations cannot change incorporators, so to convert from a sole proprietorship to an Inc., you need to file Articles of Incorporation.
If a sole proprietor is interested in becoming a partnership, you need to interact with the Arizona Secretary of State. To start a corporation, you do not need to have any officers but after incorporation, the Board of Directors is given a free hand to appoint them.
