Merge or Consolidate a Business
Different laws and filing formats govern merger and consolidation of business entities in New Jersey. The choice of appropriate legal authority and filing format will be determined by the types of businesses involved and the circumstances surrounding the merger/consolidation transaction.

In all cases, a copy of the Business Plan and Agreement of Merger must be submitted when merging or consolidating a business. In addition, a tax clearance certificate may be required if the surviving business is not currently registered or is not an authorized domestic corporation.

The forms for merger/consolidation transactions may be downloaded. The fees will vary depending on the business type. Given the complex nature of these transactions, you may wish to have an attorney draft these forms.

Additional information concerning this type of transaction may be obtained by calling
(609) 292-9292.
