Utah Certificate of Authority Filing Service
UT Foreign Corporation
If you are a corporation located in a state other than Utah and want to conduct business in Utah, you will need a Certificate of Authority to operate in Utah. This is obtained by filing as a foreign corporation with the Corporations Division of the Utah Secretary of State. After you submit your forms, the State of Utah will return a filed certificate of authority to you. A foreign Utah corporation should not be confused with an out-of-country corporation. Any corporation not actually formed (created) in the State of Utah is a foreign corporation.
We only charge $100 plus the Utah state filing fee to prepare and file the foreign Utah corporation Certificate of Authority form to the Utah Secretary of State, Corporations Division. We will also track down the forms needed from the home state of your incorporation to file your documents.
If you want to do the filing yourself: you just need to sign up for our Utah registered agent service and the foreign corporation form is already in your online account immediately. There are also some submission tips on how to make the filing with the state. You are required to have a registered agent in Utah anyway, so we try to make this an easy process for you, whether you want us to submit your papers or you want to send them to the Utah Secretary of State yourself.
How do I sign up?
Just sign up for our registered agent service first. Next, you can look at the foreign corporation form in your online account and also at our filing tips. If you decide not to fill out and submit the documents yourself, you just click the “Add services” tab in your account, and add our filing services for the state filing fees plus $100. Your account shows real time status of our work in progress. Once we are finished with your Utah foreign corporation registration, we always upload the filing in your online account, email you a copy, and send you the original filed documents by mail.
