Filing a Foreign Qualification

What is a Foreign Qualification?

A Foreign Qualification refers to the process by which you register your company to do business in another state. An LLC or corporation is considered "domestic" in the state in which is was formed, and “foreign” in any other state in which it wants to do business. When you file a Foreign Qualification, you get a Certificate of Authority, which gives you legitimate rights to do business in the state.

A Foreign Qualification must be completed in each state in which a corporation or LLC intends to conduct business.

How The Foreign Qualification Process Works

Name Search

Your corporation’s name will be compared to the database in each state to ensure no other company is using it. Hopefully, there will be no contradiction, but if there is then you’ll be asked to operate under a fictitious or assumed name.

Registered Agent

You will need to select a registered agent in that state.

Certificate of Authority

Finally, you register for the right to do business in the state. This is similar to the process of incorporation and requires some paperwork and fees be submitted.
