The Secretary of State issues Idaho Good Standing Certificates (also known as Certificates of Existence). These documents may be required for various tax purposes, loans, or to renew business licenses. With a certificate, your Idaho business will be considered “in existence” with the state. It will also be authorized to transact business in Idaho and will be known to be in compliance with all state requirements. This will put your business in "good standing."

To Qualify an Idaho Corporation in Another State:
At SunDoc Filings, we can help you foreign qualify your Idaho Corporation or LLC in any state. In order to conduct business in a state other than your home state of Idaho, you must apply for the authority. This generally means having a Idaho Good Standing Certificate (Idaho Certificate of Existence). All entities will be considered foreign corporations in states other than your home state of Idaho. To learn about different states’ qualifications, head to our qualification page.
Remember that some states will provide both a long and short form good standing. Other states might also refer to a Good Standing Certificate in one of the following ways:
- Certificate of Fact
- Certificate of Authority
- Certificate of Authorization
- Letter of Good Standing
- Certificate of Existence
Certificates of Good Standing
The certificate will state if a company is in good standing or forfeited. Forfeited means the company did not file its annual report and must file necessary paperwork to get back in good standing. The certificate does not reflect any financial information about the company.
Information about the Certificate of Good Standing
After we receive your document from the Secretary of State, we will scan it immediately and e-mail you a copy along with the original via the USPS (if necessary). Please remember that delivery times do not include weekends or state holidays as the Secretary of State office will be closed on these days.
Main reasons for needing a Good Standing Certificate:
- Qualifying your entity in a “foreign” state
- Loans and lines of credit
- Transacting business in “foreign” state
- Special industries’ requirements for licensing
