Do I need to register with the Missouri Secretary of State's Office for a charter number?

Yes. The store name on the application must be the same name as registered with the Missouri Secretary of State or the owner's full name must appear in the store's name, (e.g. John Doe's Grocery). Stores using fictitious names or names other than the owner's full name must be registered with the Secretary of State's office.
