To Qualify a New Hampshire Corporation in Another State:
To foreign qualify a New Hampshire corporation or LLC may require a Good Standing Certificate (Certificate of Existence) to qualify as a "Foreign Corporation" in a state other than the home state of New Hampshire. Any entity is considered “Foreign” to another state and must apply for the Authority to do business in another state. To do so, each state has different qualification guidelines, most of which include a Good Standing Certificate from the home state. We can help you with any state.

Other states may offer both a short form and a long form good standing. They may also refer to a Good Standing Certificate as one of the following:
Certificate of Fact
