Searching for Business Records in Oklahoma

In the State of Oklahoma, the Oklahoma Secretary of State is responsible for maintaining business records such as documentation of incorporation as well as state trademark registry information. Some of this information is available for no fee. Here are some tips to assist you in accessing this information over the internet.

What Records Are Maintained by the Oklahoma Secretary of State?

When corporations and similar entities are formed, they are required to file documentation of their formation with the Secretary of State, as well as periodic documentation of their status. It should be noted that the Oklahoma Secretary of State will only have the incorporation documents of corporations formed in Oklahoma; if a business elected to incorporate under the laws of a different state, the Oklahoma Secretary of State would not be the recipient of the incorporation documents.

Additionally, the State of Oklahoma maintains a state registry of trademarks claimed by Oklahoma businesses. This registry should not be confused with the federal registry maintained by the United States Patent and Trademark Office. These records are maintained by the Oklahoma Secretary of State.

How Can I Search for Records Maintained by the Oklahoma Secretary of State?

To begin your search for Oklahoma business records online, first go to the Oklahoma Secretary of State website at http://www.sos.state.ok.us/ . Then Select the option at the top of the page marked “SOONERAccess.” This will take you to a page displaying the different types of searches that can be performed and a notation of which searches may be performed for free and which will only be performed for a fee.

In order to search to determine whether a desired business name is taken, from the SOONERAccess page select the option “Name Availability.” You will be taken to a page where you may select whether to perform a standard search, a search of churches only, a search of banks only, or a search of domestic cooperatives only. After making your selection, you will be taken to a search page where you may enter the desired business name in the search window, then click “Search.” Results will be returned in list form, including filing number, entity name, type, registered agent and effective date. In order to purchase additional information, you can select the radio button next to each item or click on the filing number to enter payment information. It should be remembered that no name availability search can take the place of a confirmation from the Secretary of State’s office that you have successfully registered the name yourself.

In order to search for general business entity information, from the SOONERAccess page select the option “Entity Search.” You will be taken to a page where you may select “Search Active” to search for active corporations, “Search Banks,” “Search Churches,” “Search Domestic Cooperatives,” “Search All,” “Search for Registered Agent,” “Search by Name of Person,” and “Filing Number Search.” After making your selection you will be taken to a search page where your search terms may be entered. The search results will include filing number, name, entity type, and in the case of individual name searches, the title. Each item in the search result list will have a radio button to allow you to order additional information. Alternatively, clicking on the filing number will permit you to access additional information online for a fee.

To search for state-registered trademark information, from the SOONERAccess page, select the option “Name Search” or the option “Trademark Search.” Selecting “Name Search” will take you immediately to a search window to input search terms. Selecting “Trademark Search” will take you to a page where you can select to search for all trademarks, search by registration number, search by document number, or search by applicant name. After making your selection, you will be taken to a page where you can enter your search criteria. The search results will be returned in a list format including registration number, description, class code, and trademark status. The registration numbers are clickable links that will allow you to view additional information about the trademark, including the word description and date of expiration. A link marked “View Specimen” permits you to view an example of the trademark. Three tabs can be clicked, “Applicants,” “Filing History” and “Classification,” which will permit viewers to access that additional information.
