How to obtain a Indiana Good Standing
Businesses in the state of Indiana may require the use of a Certificate of Good Standing. This document can be obtained by submitting a records order to the Indiana Secretary of State office. The state will issue this document for a variety of reasons. For example, you may need it to prove that your company is in compliance with Indiana state requirements and that it is currently registered to do business in Indiana. Alternatively, you may need the document to prove that your company was suspended or dissolved in the past.
The Certificate of Good Standing is a formal document, featuring the state seal of Indiana and the Secretary of State's authorized signature.
The same records request is necessary if you wish to obtain certified information or record filings on a company you don't own yourself. You can obtain a multitude of filings on record for various entities, including original out-of-state registrations, amendments, articles of formation, conversion, and more.
Use the state of Indiana's website to find out more about making records requests, including necessary forms and fee information. They also have an online business search tool, which can help you research more records.
If you require your Certificate of Good Standing on the next business day, an expedited order can be made on your behalf by SunDoc!
When Do You Need A Certificate Of Good Standing?
Certificates of Good Standing are required for multiple reasons and will usually make up part of your entity’s legal documentation. starters, some tax matters require a Certificate of Good Standing. Remember that you can still be in good standing with the state of Indiana if you owe taxes, but you must be in compliance with the tax process itself.
Other reasons for needing a Certificate of Good Standing include:
- Being involved in an acquisition or merger
- Selling your business
- Buying a business outright
- Handling specific licensing requirements for your entity
- Opening any line of credit
- Applying for a business loan
Another frequent need for a Certificate of Good Standing is to register to do business in another state (see how SunDoc Filings can help you with foreign qualification). You will have to determine your full documentation requirements, including expirations. Some states for example require certified status to be less than 30 days old, while some allow 60 days.
Certificate Of Good Standing Or Certificate Of Status?
In the state of Indiana, the Certificate of Good Standing is the same as a Certificate of Existence, and it is also the same as a Certificate of Status. These documents prove that a company is in compliance with licensing requirements and corporate rules in the state of Indiana, and it also shows that the company is registered to do business within Indiana state. Finally, the document proves that a company has not been suspended by the Indiana state taxing authority.
How To Get Your Good Standing Certificate
