Conduct Business in Another State

As a business changes, it may be necessary to stop doing business in some states, and expand into others. Don't forget to file a Foreign Qualification when beginning operations in a new state.

A Corporation or LLC that has previously foreign qualified in a state other than their home state, generally need to file a Withdrawal to stop doing business in that state, to ensure it will have no further obligations to that state.

If this is your situation, let us file a Withdrawal for you as quickly as possible. We will prepare your Withdrawal for your review and submission to the appropriate state agency in any of the 50 states to assist you in withdrawing your corporation or LLC.

  1. Fill out and submit the Withdrawal order form.
  2. You will find requests for standard contact, billing, and authorization information, plus specific requests regarding your entity type, foreign state registered agent information, and forwarding address information.
  3. We'll complete the necessary documentation and forward it to you for your signature.
  4. You sign the documents, and forward back to us.
  5. We file them with the Secretary of State (unless otherwise indicated). Once filed and approved by the Secretary of State, the documents will be mailed to you for your records.


What do I file if I cease doing business in a particular jurisdiction?

Where a Corporation or Limited Liability Company (LLC) has previously filed as a foreign entity in a certain state and is no longer conducting business activities within that state, the entity must file an Application for Certificate of Withdrawal to ensure it will have no further obligations to that state.

What is the effect of a Withdrawal?

Filing a withdrawal will terminate the corporate existence in that state. It is important to note, however, that in most jurisdictions, the application for withdrawal is not considered complete until all required fees, penalties, and costs have been paid.
