A Texas foreign LLC is a limited liability company which was formed in another state.
Texas Application for Registration LLC
If you own an LLC located outside of Texas and you want to operate in Texas, you will need to register your limited liability company as a foreign Texas LLC. Once filed, the state returns a filed certificate of authority from the Corporations Division of the Texas Secretary of State. The certificate of authority means you have the protection afforded to limited liability companies in the State of Texas – without it, the company cannot take advantage of Texas laws, like filing a lawsuit to collect a debt, if it has a Texas presence but is not registered.
We can register your Texas foreign LLC for the state filing fee plus $200.
OR, you can do the filing yourself, and just sign up with us as your Texas registered agent.
All foreign LLCs in Texas will require a registered agent. We offer this service for $100 a year.
Once you sign up for Texas registered agent service, you will you’ll find the Texas foreign LLC form you file with the Corporations Division of the Texas Secretary of State in your client account download area.
After looking at the resources and forms we provide in your online account, if you do not want to actually file the paperwork yourself, you may contact us to file the paperwork for you for the state filing fees plus $200. As part of that service, we will also locate the proper documents from your LLCs home state that are needed to properly register you with the Texas Secretary of State.
