How to obtain a New Hampshire Good Standing
If you’re registered to do business in the State of New Hampshire, for various business or legal reasons you may occasionally need to prove this formally. When you need to show that you’re in compliance with all applicable state requirements, the Certificate of Good Standing is the document issued by the state to certify this. Furthermore, if you don't need to show good standing, you may still need the same certification document to prove that your company has been dissolved or suspended.
To obtain your certificate from the State of New Hampshire, submit a records order to the Secretary of State’s office. The state will issue a certificate bearing an imprint of the Seal of New Hampshire and the Secretary of State’s authorized signature.
If you want information on an entity other than your own, you can do this as well. For example, you can order all of the on-record filings in a certified collection for any entity. This collection may include original registration forms if the company is from out of state, amendments and conversion forms, articles of formation, and more.
You can research records using New Hampshire’s online business search and you can find more information about records-request forms and fees at the state web site. To obtain a certificate of Good Standing the next business day, SunDoc can expedite your request!
When Do You Need A Certificate Of Good Standing?
Many business, financial, and government related situations require a Certificate of Good Standing. This document will form an important part of your entity's legal documentation. It's important to remember that expiration dates are pertinent when it comes to Certificates Of Good Standing as well. For whatever reason you require this certified status, know that certain states want certified proof of good standing to be no older than 30 or 60 days. All states are different.
Certificates of Good Standing are required for many tax matters. Even if you owe taxes to the state, your company can still be in good standing, but you must be in compliance with the tax process.
You also need a Certificate of Good Standing if you are involved in an acquisition or merger, or if you plan to apply for a line of credit such as a business loan. Licensing requirements sometimes require certified status too, and you'll need one for buying companies and selling companies as well.
Finally, any company that wants to do business in another state will need to go through the foreign qualification process, which requires a Certificate Of Good Standing and which we can help you with at SunDoc.
Certificate Of Good Standing Or Certificate Of Status?
In some jurisdictions, the Certificate of Good Standing document is also known as a Certificate of Existence or, sometimes, a Certificate of Status. In the state of New Hampshire, this document proves that a company is registered to conduct business within the state of New Hampshire.
It also proves that the entity is compliant with licensing requirements and applicable corporate rules within the state. Finally, it proves that the company has not been suspended by the state taxing authority (the Franchise Tax Board).
