Filing Your Certificate of Good Standing

What is a Certificate of Good Standing?

A Certificate of Good Standing is an official document issued by your state’s secretary of state office to verify that your business is compliant within the state of incorporation and therefore is in “good standing.” Just like having a driver’s license or other forms of personal ID, a Certificate of Good Standing proves that your LLC or corporation is officially registered and authorized to operate in your home state.

Also known as a Certificate of Existence, Certificate of Authorization, or a Certificate of Status, the Good Standing Certificate is a one-page document provided by the secretary of state and provides conclusive evidence of the status of your business entity. In many cases it can be valid up to three months.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why do I need a Certificate of Good Standing?

A Certificate of Good Standing is typically needed in the normal course of business by another organization (business partner, bank, lender, investor or regulatory authority) to prove that your business entity is legally registered with the state and is in good standing. The Certificate of Good Standing proves that you have paid any necessary fees and filed required paperwork to keep your business chartered, registered and in compliance with your state authorities.

How long is it valid

The validity of a certificate in terms of age is determined by the organization that has requested it. Under most circumstances a requesting organization will require that the document is not older than 30 days.

What will happen if my entity is not in good standing?

If the entity that the certificate is being requested for is not in good standing, we will contact you and provide details as to the status of the corporation or LLC and issue a full refund or provide assistance in bringing the entity back to good standing. This process is usually referred to as reinstatement.

How long does it take to obtain a Certificate of Good Standing?

The filing time depends on the governing state agency and varies by state.

Why do I have to pay annually?
+
Other companies might offer one time payment today but charge you later for fees to keep your business compliant. If you don't pay the fees, your business may fall out of compliance with the state and you'll be charged hefty penalty fees. We want to help you avoid that. That's why with us, your annual payment goes toward your registered agent service, maintaining your US address, scanning your mail, and filing any required documents for your company to keep it current throughout the year so you don't have to worry about legal paperwork. Our goal here is to help you avoid dealing with any of the paperwork or headaches of maintaining compliance so you can focus on what you do best: your business.
Do I need to visit the USA to open a bank account?
+
Nope! We handle everything remotely. You'll just need to provide your passport as identity verification and we'll work directly with the bank to open your account.
Do you help with taxes?
+
We work with our partners to help provide you with an easy way to file your taxes. Our partner GBS Tax Services has packages based on revenue. A 100k/yr company will cost around $750 to file. We also help our Pro plan customers with a free CPA assessment and free bookkeeping up to 10k in revenue. We recommend clients who file with us to purchase accounting services elsewhere so that they can obtain the personalized service they need for their business. But if you're looking to just get a high-level overview of the expected costs, our team estimates a standard tax return for a small business generating less than 100k in revenue to be anywhere from $175 to $820.
What do I need to get started?
+
To get started, simply fill out our online form, submit your payment, upload your documentation and we'll handle the rest.​
Do I need to be a U.S. Citizen with an SSN to use Jumpstart?
+
No, you don't need to be a U.S. Citizen with an SSN to use Jumpstart. We support non-residents from over 175+ countries. If you do have an SSN, let us know and we can expedite your application.
Why should I start a U.S. Company?
+
Most of our clients start U.S. companies to access the U.S. market, reduce their personal liability, and access U.S. payment/banking infrastructure.
