WARNING ON CALIFORNIA CORPORATIONS & CALIFORNIA LLC'S

THOUGHTS ON SUCCESS

What's a foreign company?  How does that vary from a domestic company?

In whatever state you live in, a company filed in that same state is considered a domestic corporation.  A corporation filed in any other state is a foreign corporation.  For example, a Florida corporation is domestic to the state of Florida.  But it's considered a foreign corporation in any other state; such as a Florida company in Texas.  Likewise, a Texas corporation is domestic to the state of Texas.  The Texas company would then be foreign to the State of Florida. 

Knowing the above, doing business in your state may require a "foreign filing" if the company was initially filed in another state.

First, why not obtain a shelf company made in Florida?

1.  Florida collects information on stockholders on the state or local level (business license).  A change of ownership usually translates into a "new company" even though it may be several years old.  Bankers consider companies as "new" when the owners change.  As for states such as Montana, Wyoming and New Mexico, stockholder info is not collected.  Therefore, the transfer of ownership is not transparent on the public record.

2.  Florida collects info such as SSN and Date of Birth.  Therefore, buying a company filed in Florida is not the best idea if you're building corporate credit.  Acquire a company from Montana, Wyoming or New Mexico, and then file it in Florida as a foreign corporation.

What states produce the best shelf corporations and LLC's?

Look at states that respect property rights and costs less to maintain.

Montana:  $15 per year in annual fees, great respect for property rights, and owners do not need to disclose their interest to the State of Montana.

Wyoming:  $50 per year in annual fees, great respect for property rights, and owner do not need to disclose their interest to the State of Wyoming.

New Mexico:  $0 per year in annual fees, moderate respect for property rights, and owners do not need to disclose their interest to the State of New Mexico.


 

How to Register a Corporation or LLC in Florida

 

This manual does not tell you how to FORM a corporation or LLC,

 but HOW TO REGISTER your foreign corporation or LLC, out of Montana, Wyoming or New Mexico.

 

Understand the Process of Qualifying as a Foreign Corporation

If your Corporation or LLC is from another state,

it will be considered a Foreign Corporation or LLC.

 

A foreign corporation is an existing corporation that is registered to do business in a state jurisdiction other than the one where it was originally incorporated.

A domestic corporation is one that is registered in the same state of original incorporation.

Things You’ll Need:

  • Filing fees – checks or money orders
  • Computer with Internet access and printer to download forms
  • Certain required documentation (letter of good standing) and completed forms

Step 1: Is your entity name already in use?

Check to see if the name of the Corporation or LLC you are wanting to register is already in use. If your entity name is already taken, you may need to modify your entity name slightly to register in that state. If original name is used, an alternate name must be used with this form:

LLC http://form.sunbiz.org/pdf/cr2e122.pdf

Corporation http://form.sunbiz.org/pdf/cr2e019.pdf

To check names in FLORIDA: http://www.sunbiz.org/search.html

Step 2: Complete Application Form

Obtain an application from the state's department of commerce. The application will be called something like, "Application for Authority to Conduct Affairs" or “Registering a Corporation or LLC”. Often, you can download this from your state's official Web site.

All Florida registration Forms are located here:

http://www.sunbiz.org/downloads.html

Some specific forms and filing fees are listed here for your convenience:

Foreign Corporation Registration - $87.50

http://form.sunbiz.org/pdf/cr2e007.pdf

 

Foreign LLC Registration - $160 for

filing fee, certificate of status and certified copy

http://form.sunbiz.org/pdf/cr2e027.pdf

 

Step 3: Certificate of Good Standing for Foreign Entities             

If your corporation or LLC is domestic (same state), you can skip this step.           


If you are a foreign organization, go to the secretary of state in the state where you are incorporated, and get an original Certificate of Good Standing. This must be attached to the application form.

For foreign entities wishing to register in Florida, the certificate must be dated within 90 days of the time of filing.

Step 4: File Application, Fee, and Return Envelope with Department of Commerce


File your application and fee with state's department of commerce. Know that nonprofit corporations may qualify for reduced filing fees.

Prepare Yourself for the Tax Consequences

Step 1: Register with State


Know that, since you are choosing to take advantage of all the rights and amenities of the state in which you are operating as a foreign corporation, you will be obligated to contribute to the health and wealth of that state. This
may mean filing taxes and paying other fees within that state.

Step 2:  Complete and Submit Taxes

Your business may be required to register, collect, accrue and remit various taxes or fees in Florida.  You can register your business with the Florida Department of Revenue by filing Form DR-1:  http://dor.myflorida.com/dor/forms/2006/dr1.pdf

You may also register on line: http://dor.myflorida.com/dor/eservices/apps/register/

Consider using an accounting firm to handle your taxes.

Tips & Warnings

  • Plan to spend several hours gathering and filling out the paperwork necessary to qualify as a foreign corporation. If you want to do business in many states, you will need to fill out separate forms for each one. Many people delegate this work to a corporate attorney or a firm that specializes in the registering of corporations.

  • If you are not registered in a state, you may not have the right to sue, which can limit your ability to collect debts and pursue your rights as a business.
  • If the state in which you do business requires out-of-state companies to register as foreign corporations and you neglect to do so, you may have to pay weighty penalties.
  • If you are doing business in your home state and you have not qualified as a foreign corporation in that state, you may be unable to pursue legal rights until you qualify. By that time, the statute of limitations may have run out.
  • Don't be daunted by the foreign filing process. As with becoming incorporated, it's simply a matter of correctly filling out the appropriate forms and paying the filing fees.
