Procedure to Create a Professional Business Entity

Below is a summary of the procedures, laws and guidelines to register a professional business entity license through the NC Board of Chiropractic Examiners (NCBOCE).

  1. Login to your account on the Board Portal. On the left side of the window please click on Registration. Next select the option to ‘Register a New Corporation’. Complete the online form and pay the $50 incorporation fee to the Board.
  2. Once the Board receives and processes your online corporate registration you will receive an automated email containing a PDF of the Board’s Certificate of Registration. This can then be filed with the NC Secretary of State.

Pursuant to N.C.G.S. §55B-10, “No professional corporation shall open, operate, or maintain an establishment for any of the purposes set forth in this Chapter without first having obtained a Certificate of Registration from the licensing board or boards.”

Pursuant to 21 NCAC 10. 0217, there are restrictions on the naming options for chiropractic professional entities.
