For whatever reason, many business leaders decide that one day they need to change the name of their personal business. When such a process starts, and the name of any given incorporated company is replaced, what is known as a name amendment needs to then be completed under the state of incorporation. When the company has officiated its registration towards transact businesses within the jurisdiction of another state, then its name must also then be corrected in the relevant zones. The procedure needed to formally replace a company title within a state requires the submission of an article known as the Articles of Amendment.

Similar to the case wherein the initial title of a company was selected, the new title needs to be easily identified within state records, and it must not be in any way close to the title which is running through other business owners assimilated or distantly qualified within the state.
