Good Standing Certificate

We issue Certificates of Good Standing to prove that a corporation is authorized to transact business in Maryland and all fees, taxes, and penalties owed to Maryland are paid. Good Standing Certificates can be useful when a company is about to be sold and a potential buyer needs proof that the company is not falling behind in their state tax payments.

To request a Good Standing Certificate, please provide us with the following information:

  • Full name of the corporation.
  • Date of incorporation.
  • Name of the state where the company is incorporated (In the case of a foreign corporation, please provide the date the corporation qualified in Maryland).
  • Corporation's principal address.
  • Federal employer identification number.
  • Unemployment insurance number (if the corporation had no employees, please indicate)
