What is a Certificate of Good Standing?

This certificate is used to prove that your company is legally registered and authorized to conduct business in the state that issues the certificate. It is issued by the state agency responsible for regulating businesses in that state. Some states call it a “Certificate of Existence” or “Certificate of Status.”

Companies registered in multiple states can receive a Certificate of Good Standing in the state where the business was originally registered as well as any state where they filed a foreign entity registration allowing them to transact business there.

Most Certificates of Good Standing include the legal name of the company and an expiration date. This is the date that the company is required to renew its registration or submit its next required filing. 

When will I need a Certificate of Good Standing?

Your business will need this certificate anytime a person or another organization requests proof that you are authorized to do business in their state. For example, certificates are often required in the following situations:

  • In order to be approved for a bank loan
  • In order to receive utilities from a utility company
  • In order to rent an office space
  • In order to register as a foreign entity authorized to do business in another state
