Foreign Qualification / Certificate of Authority

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.

Please confirm that this is exactly how your company name is filed with the state.

ie. hair salon, accountant, bar owner, social media… Understanding what industry you're in can be helpful when filing certain state forms, however it can also help you when applying for financing, competing for government contracts, and can potentially help in identifying tax benefits.
