  • Rejection Prevention Tip #7: Certificates of Status/Good Standing

    by admin AB | Aug 22, 2014
    Corporations and LLCs formed out of state must include a Certificate of Status, or equivalent, when they apply to register their company in California. The certificate must be issued  from the company's state of origin within the past six months and list the entity in "Active Status" and/or "Good Standing".  Secretary of State filings for registration of international companies formed outside the US are subject to additional regulations.
