Fastest - Online Registration
Online filing is the fastest way to register or renew your business registration.
Business registrations submitted through our online systems are processed on the same or next business day.
Fast - Courier/Drop-off Service
Documents submitted to our Public Service Counter in Salem by private courier or express mail courier (Federal Express or UPS) are generally processed the day received. We're open 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday-Friday except on state holidays. We remain open during the lunch hour.
Slower - Mailed Registrations
Please allow time for mail delivery and up to one week for processing and acknowledgment of mailed business registration forms.
U.S. Postal Service Express Mail and Priority Mail don't deliver directly to our Public Service Counter and are processed as regular mailed registrations.
About Expedited Shipping
You can get expedited shipping by sending your documents through FedEx. The FedEx ShipManager demonstrates how to fill out your airbill online. This is the best way to ensure your packages get to your destination quickly.
FedEx has a scheduled pick-up at our office each weekday. If your document includes a pre-paid airbill for return, as a courtesy we can hand it to the FedEx courier.
Use expedited shipping to ensure your documents arrive to your international destination timely. If a prepaid airbill from FedEx, UPS or DHL is not provided, the documents will be sent via regular mail. Receipt of your documents may be at risk due to the reliability of the destination country's postal system. International customers may want to consider alternative mailing arrangements if FedEx, UPS or DHL are not available.
