Business Registration & Licensing Tips for Proper Vehicle Compliance
By Natalie Beach April 29, 2021
As states continue to invest time and resources into technology and governance of vehicle compliance, Wheels continues to experience changes impacting the registration and titling processes. Many jurisdictions require businesses to establish and maintain an active business setup to complete the licensing and titling procedures. Your organization must work directly with your local secretary of state and/or the ministries of transportation to complete the arrangement.
With the recent surge of manufacturer cut-offs and increased orders, Wheels developed the downloadable guide below as a reference for key jurisdictions that require online setup. To comply with state and provincial laws, vehicles should be titled, plated and registered in the jurisdictions in which they operate and/or are garaged.
The name registered with the jurisdiction must match exactly as requested on the registration and title documents. If it does not, this can create delays or rejections during processing. If a business registration is needed, it’s recommended to consult your tax, finance or risk departments to properly complete the step.
Fortunately, many states and provinces offer online tools to assist. In Wheels’ experience, the jurisdictions listed below require an active setup to continue with the plating process — and avoid unnecessary delays.
New vehicle paperwork
New vehicle paperwork will be held until the online setup has been completed. If your business is using more than one entity name, please work with a member of your Wheels Account Team to ensure that this is completed correctly in our system.
