A Corporation or LLC can be incorporated in any state,
however, the company is only authorized to
do business in the state in which it is formed.
To authorize your company to do business in a state other than
where the company was formed, you need to file paperwork in each
state you intend to do business.
"Doing business" can have different meanings in each
state, but typically includes:
The process of obtaining authorization to do business
in another state is called "Foreign Qualification".
This is also sometimes called obtaining a "Certificate
of Authority" that is issued by the state once
the process is completed.
For example, if you are incorporated as a Delaware
LLC and are physically located and doing business in
New York, then you will need to "Foreign Qualify" your
Delaware LLC in New York which authorizes your LLC
to do business in that state.
MyNewCompany.com can file your
Foreign Qualification in any state! If you need to Foreign
Qualify in multiple states, our order form allows
