All businesses registered in New York must have a registered address for processing paperwork. This address is labeled DOS Process on the entity information page. Other details, such as the registered agent and company officer addresses, may be listed here as well. The registered agent could be a third party service that does not have any direct affiliation with the company itself. An address may be invalid if the current entity status is listed as inactive, as this means the business is no longer active.

The actual name of the company may differ from the name it uses when conducting business. This is because a company from another state that does business in New York cannot use its actual name if another company has registered it in New York already. When this happens, the company registers a fictitious name and uses that for conducting business. A list of all fictitious names used by a company is displayed on the bottom-right corner of the page.
