What is Foreign Qualification?

Each state has its own laws regarding Foreign Corporation or LLC registration.  "Foreign Election" is the technical term for the process of registering - or "Qualifying" - as a Foreign Corporation or LLC in a US state.  The fee for Foreign Election is usually around the same as the fee for forming a Domestic Corporation or LLC in the state and usually takes about the same amount of processing time.  Fees, times and requirements for Foreign Qualification vary from state to state and depend on whether you want to form a Foreign Corporation or Foreign LLC and how fast you want to do it.

What is a Foreign Corporation or Foreign LLC?

In the United States, just because you are registered to do business in one state does not mean that you can legally do business in another state.  If you want to transact any serious business in a state other than the state in which your Corporation or LLC is registered, most likely you will have to register with the state in which you want to do business before you can legally conduct business there.  more...

Why would I need to Qualify as a Foreign Corporation or LLC?

Each state's specific definition of what constitutes "Business" is a little different.  Generally if you enter into repeated and successive business transactions or have a physical presence within a state in which you are not registered as a Corporation or LLC you will have to qualify as a Foreign Corporation or LLC in that state.  more...

What happens if I do not Register as a Foreign Corporation or LLC?

You've formed your Corporation or LLC to remove Business Liability from the owners.  If you fail to register as a Foreign Corporation or LLC in a state other that the state in which you are registered, and a legal matter arises, the state in which you are not registered may hold the owners or operators legally responsible.  You lose the Liability advantages of a Corporation or LLC when you fail to register as a Foreign Corporation or LLC.

Tax Considerations for a Foreign Corporation

Each Foreign Corporation or LLC is responsible for the same state and federal taxes as a Domestic Corporation or LLC in any state.  You must determine which revenue is derived from both the Foreign Corporation or LLC and the Domestic Corporation or LLC and allocate the taxable income appropriately between the two separate business entities. more...

Are there alternatives to Foreign Incorporation?

Instead of forming a Foreign Corporation or LLC, you could form your company separately in each state where you want to do business.  Your company would be a Domestic Corporation or LLC - a separate business entity - in each state where you form your business.

If you do not need to operate your Domestic Corporation or LLC you have two options:
  1. Dissolve your Domestic Corporation or LLC in your current home state and create a new Domestic Corporation or LLC in your new state
  2. Create a new Corporation or LLC in your new state then merge your Domestic Corporation into it
more...

What do I have to do to register as a Foreign Corporation or LLC?

3 things you have to do in order to qualify as a Foreign Corporation or LLC.
  1. Prove that you are a Domestic Corporation or LLC in another state
  2. Register an address within the state in which you want to do business
  3. File the appropriate forms in the state in which you want to do business
more...

What do I have to do after I form a Foreign Corporation?

All states require you to file some kind of report, and pay a fee, either annually or biennially for the right do do business in their state.  The report includes basic information on your Foreign Corporation or LLC and must be filed by a specific date which varies from state to state.  Failure to file the report, and pay the fee, on time can lead to the disqualification and loss of Liability protection of your Foreign Corporation or Foreign LLC.

How much does it cost to Register as a Foreign Corporation or LLC?

The cost of Foreign Qualification varies from state to state.  Foreign Qualification costs also depend on whether you want to form a Foreign Corporation or Foreign LLC.  If the state in which you want to do business also requires a good standing certificate then you have to factor in that cost also. 

Our Foreign Qualification Cost Calculator in the upper right hand corner of this screen will give you an idea of the cost for your particular situation.
