Scope and Content

Incorporation Case Files contain at a minimum the original articles of incorporation and any subsequent amendments to corporations. Some files also contain notices to pay licensing fees and taxes, oaths of office for corporate officers, annual reports, correspondence, or other miscellaneous documents. Case files are created during the length of a corporation's duration. The case file is generated when companies incorporate and serve as evidence of "due incorporation of the corporation [UCA 16-2]." This series ended in 1961 when registration of corporations was transferred from the county clerks to state government, and the Utah Division of Corporations was created.
