Delaware Certificate of Good Standing
A Delaware Certificate of Good Standing is a document issued by the Delaware Certificate of State that shows a company is up-to-date on paying franchise tax and, for corporations, filed its annual report. A bank may require one to open a business bank account.
Your Delaware Corporation or LLC must be up-to-date with regards to all fees and penalties owed to the state in order to maintain its good standing with the Delaware Secretary of State. Additionally, a corporation must file an Annual Report listing its directors.
We can help your company maintain this good standing status.
How to Order a Delaware Certificate of Good Standing
We can obtain a Delaware Certificate of Good Standing and e-mail it to you for $99 (the State charge of $50 plus a $49 processing fee). Some other agents charge as much as $130 for this service.
Often we can produce the Good Standing within minutes. This document is required by many states as supporting documentation when submitting a Certificate of Authority to your home state to become a registered foreign Corporation or foreign LLC. (Note: You can request this service at the time of formation or at a later date). A bank or lender will require a Certificate of Good Standing that was dated within the last 30 to 60 days, so timing is important.
