How to verify:

For entities in the United States: All U.S. states and most U.S. territories post searchable business incorporation information online via their Secretary of State or Department of Corporations websites. A list of U.S. databases is available for reference below.

For entities outside the United States: Many foreign countries and territories have centralized business registries that can be searched. In cases where no national/territorial database is available, the company's legal existence and complete legal name must be verified through third-party sources. A list of foreign business registries is available for reference below; please note that in many cases the websites are not available in English but can be translated using in-browser translation.

OpenCorporates can be helpful in locating the state/jurisdiction of registration/incorporation if this information is unclear.
