INBiz, Indiana’s one-stop business portal, reaches 300,000 active users

INDIANAPOLIS (May 16, 2018) —INBiz, Indiana’s one-stop business portal, continues to reach new heights. The site registered its first user in April 2016, and now – just over two years later – 300,000 users have signed up to do business with the state through INBiz. These users included business owners, entrepreneurs, managers, attorneys, CPAs, and more. Since launching, Hoosier businesses have conducted more than 513,000 transactions through INBiz, including nearly 100,000 on-line business formations.

“The phenomenal success of INBiz speaks to the relevance of its mission and design,” said Indiana Secretary of State Connie Lawson. “Business owners need to spend time working on their business, not hours being transferred between government agencies to ensure basic compliance. INBiz allows just that – owners and managers can focus on what matters. INBiz is a clear example of government working for its people, instead of the other way around.”

In April 2016, the State of Indiana launched INBiz, the first phase of its business one-stop web portal. Included in the first phase were services from the Secretary of State’s office that allowed Hoosiers to register their businesses, file key reports, and request key corporate documents, such as a Certificate of Existence. In August 2016, the site expanded to allow business owners access to services from the Department of Revenue and Department of Workforce Development through INBiz. The Indiana Professional Licensing Agency joined in late 2017, and just last month, the Office of the Attorney General became the newest member of INBiz.

The Secretary of State’s office is working closely with the cities of Greenwood, Evansville, and Speedway to extend services to local permitting and licensing, with more innovative additions planned for the future.

Secretary Lawson extended thanks to all involved in the project for their hard work and cooperation, particularly Governor Eric Holcomb. This partnership would not be possible without support from the administration.
