What is an Oklahoma Corporation?
A Corporation is (historically) the most popular form of a legal entity in the United States. Recently however, limited liability companies (LLCs) have become the prevailing choice of entity formation. Corporations provide a ‘corporate veil’ to their owners, known as stockholders (or shareholders), which shields them from the liabilities and obligations of the corporation.
Incorporation Guildelines in Oklahoma (OK):
When you form a corporation in the State of Oklahoma (OK) you will need to file the Article of Incorporation with the Oklahoma (OK) Secretary of State’s office.
The following must be included in your Articles of Incorporation:
-The name of the corporation

Corporate Filing Solutions will conduct a preliminary name search to determine the availability of your desired corporation’s name. Your corporation’s name must end in one of the following words or an abbreviation: Incorporated, Corporation, Company, Limited
If you fail to include an ending in your application, Corporate Filing Solutions will add “Inc.” when preparing and filing your incorporation documents.
If the incorporators do not plan to continue as the directors once the Articles of Incorporation have been filed, the name(s) and address(es) must be identified.
The Secretary of State’s office determines filing fees to be the number of authorized shares of stock multiplied by the par value stock price. For every $1,000.00 of authorized capital the filing fee is $1.00. For example, if your company is authorized to issue 50,000 shares of stock at $10.00 a share your filing fee will be $500.00 [(50,000shares*$10.00)/$1,000.00] = $500.00. There is a minimum-filing fee of $50.00.
Domestic corporations do not have to file an annual report. They are only required to file an annual franchise tax report every year by July 1st. Foreign (out of state businesses operating in Oklahoma) must file an annual report before July 1st of each year. The cost for foreign corporations is $10.00.
