Kemp Alerts Georgia Corporations about Solicitations

March 20, 2012

Corporations, beware: Secretary of State Brian Kemp's office has received complaints about a firm offering to complete corporate meeting minutes on behalf of Georgia corporations for a fee.

Because the solicitation from Compliance Services contains language from various Georgia Code sections and a disclaimer stating “This product has not been approved or endorsed by any government agency, and this offer is not being made by an agency of the government,” some corporate officers have been understandably confused by the official-looking documents. Remember, any official statement or request from the Secretary of State will clearly indicate its origin by displaying the State Seal and the name of Secretary of State Brian Kemp.

Despite the implications contained in the solicitation, Georgia corporations are not required by law to file corporate minutes with the Secretary of State’s Corporations Division.

If corporate customers have any questions, they should call the Corporations Division Call Center at 404-656-2817.
