How to obtain a Nebraska Good Standing
Businesses in the state of Nebraska often require a special document called a Certificate of Good Standing in order to prove that they are officially registered to do business in the state. Certificates of Good Standing also show that your company is compliant with all applicable state requirements, and it can sometimes show that a company has been suspended or dissolved.
In Nebraska, it is possible to get a Certificate of Good Standing for businesses that you own, but you can get this information for businesses that you don't own as well. For example, you can request a certified collection of recorded filings for an entity, which may include conversion documents, amendments, articles of formation, and original registration forms if the company is from out of state.
Retrieving a Certificate of Good Standing is a simple process involving submitting a records order to the Secretary of State of Nebraska. You can also use the online business search tool to research records. Once you receive your documentation, it will bear the seal of Nebraska State as well as an authorized Secretary of State signature. If you'd like to learn more about fees required for these requests or obtain your own records request forms search online.
SunDoc can expedite your Certificate of Good Standing request if you require it on the next business day.
When Do You Need A Certificate Of Good Standing?
You may need a Certificate of Good Standing if you're involved in a merger or acquisition, or if you're buying a company outright, or selling yours. The Good Standing certification will form part of the legal documentation of the entity.
Typically, applying for a business loan or line of credit will require good standing certification. Tax matters also can require it - note that you can owe taxes and still be in good standing with Nebraska, you just can't be out of compliance with any of the tax process. Certain licensing requirements may also ask for good standing certification.
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?
Some jurisdictions call a Certificate of Good Standing a Certificate of Existence or Certificate of Status. The document shows that your company is in good standing with the state of Nebraska, that it is legally registered to do business in the state, and that it is compliant with licensing requirements in the state and all corporate rules. Finally, it shows that your business has not been suspended by the Franchise Tax Board, the state taxing authority.
How To Get Your Good Standing Certificate
You can send a request in by mail or visit the Secretary of State office to request the certificate in person.
Mailed-in requests usually take 5 to 15 business days, and in-person requests will typically be processed by the second business day. If you need rush service for your Certificate of Good Standing, this is a service that Nebraska does offer.
