Articles of Incorporation

To form a corporation in New Mexico, you must file articles of incorporation. The form is customizable.

More information about corporate formation can be accessed through the website of the New Mexico Secretary of State.

The articles of incorporation must include the following information:

  • Name of the corporation
  • Type of entity
  • Corporate purpose
  • Corporate mailing and street address
  • Name, street, and mailing address of the registered agent
  • Incorporator's name, street, and mailing address
  • Directors’ names and mailing addresses
  • The number of shares* authorized by the corporation and their class, rights, and restrictions

*In New Mexico, the state does not require you to disclose the par value of the stock. Par value is the price at which a company's shares are initially offered for sale.

Mandatory Additional Filings

You must file a Document Delivery Instruction form for each filing being submitted. You cannot file the articles of incorporation or the Document Delivery Instruction form online. All documents must be filed by mail.

The state statutes applicable to articles of incorporation set forth specific requirements and optional language that you may include when filing the document.
