How to obtain a Wisconsin Good Standing
A Certificate of Status is a formal document that is often needed by companies in the state of Wisconsin for various legal and business reasons. It can be obtained by submitting a records order to the Wisconsin Secretary of State office.
The Certificate of Status is most needed when you must prove formally that your company is registered to conduct business in Wisconsin state. It may also be needed to show that your business is in compliance with all state requirements. Finally, the same records request will need to be submitted if you must certify that a company was dissolved or suspended.
Once you submit the necessary request forms, you’ll receive your Certificate of Status from the Secretary of State. It will feature the state seal and an authorized Secretary of State signature from Wisconsin.
If you require certified information for businesses that are not your own, this is possible as well. Obtainable on-record filings may include a certified collection of articles of formation, amendments, original registrations, conversion, and more.
Find additional information about records request forms, fees, and conducting records research by visiting the Wisconsin State website. SunDoc is here to help you with your Certificate of Status request. We can even expedite your request so that you can have it by same business day!
When Do You Need A Certificate Of Status?
If your company is involved in an acquisition or merger, you might require Certificate of Status. The document may also be necessary if you plan on buying a company outright or selling yours. The Certificate of Status will form part of the legal documentation of the entity.
You may also require a Certificate of Status when applying for a line of credit or a business loan or for specific tax matters. You must be in compliance with the tax process in the state of Wisconsin to be in good standing, but you can still be in good standing if you owe taxes. Finally, sometimes licensing requirements may require a Certification for Status.
Another frequent need for a Certificate of Status 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?
The Certificate of Status in other jurisdictions may also be referred to as a Certificate of Good Standing or of Existence. In Wisconsin, it shows that an entity is registered to do business in the state, is in compliance with applicable corporate rules and licensing requirements, and has not been suspended by the state taxing authority.
How To Get Your Certificate Of Status
Wisconsin is a state that allows you to order your Certificate of Status electronically instead of only personally through the state office or by mail.
When requesting documents in person, the processing time is generally by the second business day. It takes approximately 5 to 15 business days for mailed-in document requests. Rush service for Certificate of Good Standing requests is available in the state of Wisconsin.
Whenever you require expedited routine filings for your business (including requests for Certificates of Status), be sure to work with SunDoc Filings. We go several times a day to the Wisconsin Secretary of State's office to pick up and deliver our documents in person. Other filing companies will simply mail in their documents, wasting valuable time.
