A Connecticut Good Standing Certificate certifies that the business you own is legally in existence. It also means that your business will be authorized to conduct business in the state of Connecticut, and it will certify that your business complies with all current legal requirements for the state of Connecticut. The results of all of this will be that your business is in “good standing” with the state. The Connecticut Good Standing Certificate is also commonly known as a Certificate of Existence.

Qualifying Your Connecticut Corporation in a Separate State
In order to foreign qualify your Connecticut business (LLC or corporation), it is not uncommon to need a Good Standing Certificate (also known as a Certificate of Existence). What’s important to remember is that, by default, any Connecticut-based entity will be considered “foreign” in any other state. Therefore, in order to conduct business in any other state, your Connecticut-based entity will need to apply for the authority to do so. Again, this is where a Good Standing Certificate from your home state of Connecticut is usually required. With that being said, all states have different requirements. Fortunately, we are equipped to help you with any state. Go to our qualification page to find out more.
Keep in mind that some states may offer of a long and short form good standing. It’s also possible that they refer to a Good Standing Certificate by a different term, such as:
- Certificate of Existence
- Certificate of Authority
- Letter of Good Standing
- Certificate of Fact
- Certificate of Authorization
