An organization is considered to be domestic only in the state in which it was formed. Depending on the organization's particular needs, you may expect to transact business outside of the state of incorporation. In all other states, your organization will be regarded as a foreign corporation.

To qualify your organization to transact business in another state, you must register as a foreign corporation in that state. Additionally, most states required a registered agent within each state of qualification.

  • Name availability check in the state of qualification
  • Preparation of the certificate of authority
  • Obtaining a certificate of good standing

Our legal fee for a foreign qualification is $99 plus (state qualification and certificate of good standing fees.
