The state of Delaware is world-renowned by international investors, entrepreneurs, start-up titans, venture capitalists, lawyers, accountants, real estate investors and business owners for the strength of its corporate laws, the consistency of its Court of Chancery’s business decisions and the ease of operating and maintaining business entities.
In fact, the state of Delaware consists of more corporate entities (1,181,000 as of Dec 31, 2015) than human residents.
The state of Delaware’s administration works diligently to ensure that Delaware maintains its reputation as “The Incorporation Capital” in order to attract new company formations from all over the world. Here at Harvard Business Services, Inc., most of the new business formations formed by clients within the United States comes from states other than Delaware, which automatically necessitates the local compliance matter called Foreign Qualification.
The Foreign Qualification process allows a Delaware company to be governed under the Delaware Corporate Law Structure but still operate locally in another state. When a business owner files Foreign Qualification for a company doing business in another state, he/she must retain a Registered Agent in that state.
