Certificate of Good Standing

This is a document issued by an official from the state from which this document is originating. In California, this is the Secretary of State. This document provides proof that a corporation or LLC is legitimate, legal, and has the authorization to conduct business in the state of origin. It also recognizes the corporation as being compliant with state-required formalities.

The Certificate of Good Standing will also note that a corporation is properly incorporated and is authorized to conduct business in that given state. The certificate also notes that the corporation has paid all fees, taxes and has paid any penalties owed to the state.

Articles of Incorporation

This is the document one files with the Department of State when your company was “incorporated.” This is the ruling document giving proof that your company was incorporated in any given state. Articles of Incorporation will list address name of board of directors, corporate officers and pertinent information about the company.

The process of obtaining a certified copy from the Office of the Secretary of State is called the “retrieval”. Certified copies bear the Seal of the Department of State, the signature of the state officer (Secretary of State, Deputy Secretary of State, State Treasurer) and the statement that the document is in fact a true and correct copy of the original document kept on file in the Office of the Secretary of State.
