‘One-stop’ online tool adds new features for Hoosier businesses
INDIANAPOLIS — Hoosier business owners will see changes the next time they visit INBiz, the state’s business one-stop web portal.
INBiz, launched in April, includes services from the Indiana Secretary of State’s office that allows business owners to register their business, file key reports and request key corporate documents.
Now, owners also can access services from the Department of Revenue and Department of Workforce Development through the online portal’s expansion.
“Indiana is a state that works for business, and INBiz’s launch and expansion is yet another example of our ongoing efforts to cut through red tape and streamline the process for Hoosier companies to conduct business with the state,” Gov. Mike Pence said in a statement announcing the expansion.
Secretary of State Connie Lawson said the partnership is an effort to give businesses a single website for communicating with several state agencies at one time. Business owners now can handle a variety of state and local reporting requirements in one place, such as employer reporting, wage reporting, unemployment claims and premiums and tax registration.
“New businesses are one of the driving forces behind Indiana’s economy, and it’s our mission to do everything we can to support them by making it easier to do business with the state, as well as for existing businesses by allowing them to use one username and password,” Lawson said in a statement.
Since its launch in April, 57,000 users have registered their business with INBiz.
