Corporations intending to do business in states other than their home state of incorporation must first determine whether they need to qualify to do business there –and if so, fulfill that state’s qualification requirements. But qualification can be a complex and time-consuming task. Moreover, the consequences of making the wrong decision can be harsh, ranging from monetary penalties for a corporation to jail time for its officers and directors.
To aid corporations in navigating these legal waters, CSC developed Qualifying to Do Business in Another State: The CSC 50-State Guide to Qualification, a comprehensive toolbox to help you make the important decisions about qualifying in states where you plan to do business, complete with the documents required to implement that decision.
This essential resource includes:
- An in-depth discussion of business activities that do or do not trigger qualification requirements, with case illustrations updated for the 2023 Edition.
- Insight into whether certain Internet activities require qualification.
- Up-to-date qualification statutes for all 50 states and the District of Columbia, annotated with the latest case notes to show how courts have interpreted the law.
- Quick-reference charts on Activities That Do Not Constitute Doing Business and Consequences of Transacting Business without Authority.
- Direct access to fillable PDF Qualification forms for all jurisdictions via our online download center.
