Our Service at a Glance

Unlike the comprehensive company registration required in Germany (Handelsregister), there is, in principle, no system of company registration in the United States.

The individual states, however, issue several certificates regarding incorporated companies, including the Articles of Incorporation and the Certificate of Good Standing, thereby allowing potential business partners to verify company details.

The Certificate of Good Standing can be used as proof that a company has been incorporated at a certain date according to the provisions of a certain state, that it has been registered with the proper authorities and that it has regularly paid its due franchise tax.
