Q: What is a Certificate of Good Standing?

A: First, a Certificate of Good Standing is only one of several names used to describe this document. It is also frequently called a Certificate of Existence or Certificate of Status, among other things. By any name, however, it serves the exact same purpose. It is an official document, which demonstrates that your business actually exists and is authorized to conduct business in that state.

Q: Why would I need a Certificate of Good Standing for my business?

A: There are any number of reasons why you might need one. It is a common practice for anyone entering into a contract with your company to ask for proof that your business exists and is authorized to conduct business. Here are some examples:

  • Contracts
  • Obtaining Financing
  • Renewing a business related license
  • Selling a business
  • Registering to conduct business in a state other than the one where you formed your company.

Q: Once I get a Certificate of Good Standing, how long is it good for?

A: That is completely up to the party who is requiring it. However, it becomes less likely that a Certificate of Good Standing will be accepted as it becomes older. Most companies will require a recent copy.
