EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY YOU MAY ORDER CORPORATE CERTIFICATES ONLINE FROM THE SECRETARY OF STATE (http://www.sec.state.ma.us/) AND HAVE THEM PRINT DIRECTLY AT THE BARNSTABLE COUNTY REGISTRY OF DEEDS.
When ordering certificates online from the Secretary of State, you must request that your certificate be sent via email to Barnstable. This needs to be done in the “Special Filing Instructions” box when filling out the online “Certificate Request Form.”
The Secretary’s office will email these certificates to us, and we are now authorized to print them out on specially prepared paper with authentic seals. When you have ordered one of these certificates, they may be picked up the next business day in the Register’s Office. No additional fee will be assessed by our office.
If you have any questions or concerns with how to proceed, please call the Registry’s Administrative Office at 508-362-7733 opt. 8.
