To do business in any state other than its incorporation state, a corporation must file a form generally known as an Application for Certificate of Authority. Most states require documentation (obtained within a specific time frame prior to the filing) that the corporation legally exists in its home state.
Many states require additional supporting documents, such as an acceptance of appointment by the registered agent, a certificate of name registration, proof of publication, or disclosure regarding the activities/history of the corporation’s principals. States may also impose post-qualification requirements, such as an initial report. NSI’s corporate specialists can help you avoid problems and delays with your filings.
