State launches new business portal

Greater Fort Wayne Business Weekly

The first phase of Indiana's one-stop web portal for businesses is up and running.

Gov. Mike Pence and Indiana Secretary of State Connie Lawson announced the launch May 8.

INBiz is aimed at streamlining the steps a business takes when registering with the state, including registration, filing, reporting and making payments, the Secretary of State’s  office said in a statement.

This first phase of the project includes business services within the Secretary of State’s office, and will include services from the Department of Revenue and Department of Workforce Development later this year. As the portal continues to grow, INBiz will become the single point of contact for businesses as they do business with the state.

“INBiz will be the most comprehensive one-stop resource in the nation,” said Lawson. “It will streamline and expedite the registration and compliance process, reducing the cost of doing business with the state."

INBiz is available at

The $9.1 million in funding for the initiative was included in the most recent biennial budget. In March 2014, Pence signed into law House Enrolled Act 1198, which mandated executive agency participation in the Business One Stop (now INBiz) online portal.
