Texas Foreign Corporation
A Texas foreign corporation is one previously formed in another state. If you are a corporation headquartered in another state and want to conduct business in Texas, you will need a Texas Certificate of Authority from the State of Texas. This is obtained by submitting paperwork as a foreign corporation with the Corporations Division of the Texas Secretary of State. Once filed, the State of Texas will return a completed certificate of authority to you. A Texas foreign corporation is not to be confused with an out-of-country corporation. Any corporation not actually formed (created) in Texas is called a foreign corporation.
We charge for the state filing fees plus $200 to prepare and file the foreign Texas corporation Certificate of Authority form to the Corporations Division of the Texas Secretary of State. We also will find the forms needed from the home state of your incorporation to make the filing.
If you want to submit the paperwork yourself: you just need to sign up for our Texas registered agent service and the foreign corporation form is available in your client account download area immediately. There are also some tips on how to submit your documents with the state. Your business needs to have a registered agent in Texas anyway, so we try to make the process simple and easy for you, whether you want us to do the filing or you want to send them to the Texas Secretary of State yourself.
How do I sign up?
Simply sign up for our registered agent service first. Next, you can look at the form for foreign corporations in your account online and also at our filing tips. If you decide not to fill out and submit the forms yourself, you can contact us to do it for you. After we are done with your Texas foreign corporation registration, we always store the filing to your client account, email you a copy, and send you the original filed documents by mail.
