These documents certify that your Kansas business is in “existence” and in “good standing” with the state. The document may be required for your business in order to apply for a loan, renew a business license, or for various other tax or other business purposes. Your certificate will certify that you are in compliance with state regulations and that you are legally authorized to transact business in the state.

To Qualify a Kansas Corporation in Another State:
If you’d like to foreign qualify a Kansas LLC or corporation, you may need a Kansas Certificate of Existence or a Good Standing Certificate. This will make your LLC or Corporation a “foreign corporation” in the other state. All entities are considered foreign when they are not in their home state. To transact business in another state, all entities must apply for this authority. All states have different guidelines, but most guidelines require a Good Standing Certificate from the home state (Kansas). At SunDoc Filings, we’ll help with any state. Go to our qualification page to learn more.
Some states may offer both a long form and a short form good standing. It’s also possible that they’ll refer to a Good Standing Certificate as one of the following:
- Certificate of Authority
- Letter of Good Standing
- Certificate of Fact
- Certificate of Existence
- Certificate of Authorization
Why is my entity in Delinquent Status?
The Kansas Secretary of State will change the status of an entity from Active to Delinquent if they have not filed necessary forms or paid necessary fees. In order to get your entity back in good standing they will need to file an annual report and pay any necessary fees that may be due.
