California LLC Certificate of Authority
Foreign LLC in California
If you own an LLC located outside of the state of California and you want to operate in California, you will need to register your limited liability company as a California foreign LLC. Once your paperwork is filed, the state returns a filed certificate of authority from the California Secretary of State, Corporations Division.
We can register your foreign LLC in California for the state filing fee plus $100.
OR, you can do it yourself, and just hire us as your California registered agent. All Foreign California LLCs will need a registered agent. You can have this service from us for $39 a year.
Once you sign up for our California registered agent service, you will be logged into your client account online where you’ll find the foreign California LLC form you submit to the Corporations Division of the California Secretary of State.
After looking at the resources we provide in your online account, if you do not want to actually do the filing yourself, you can click on the add services tab in your account, and get us to submit your filing for you for $100 plus the state filing fees. We will also locate the correct documents from your LLCs home state that are needed to properly register you in California.
