Nebraska Certificate of Authority Filing Service
Nebraska Foreign Corporation
If you are a corporation located in another state and want to transact business in Nebraska, you will need a Nebraska Certificate of Authority to operate in Nebraska. This is obtained by submitting paperwork as a foreign corporation with the Nebraska Secretary of State, Corporations Division. Once filed, the State of Nebraska will return a completed certificate of authority to you. A foreign Nebraska corporation should not be confused with an out-of-country corporation. Any corporation not actually formed (created) in Nebraska is a foreign corporation.
We charge for the state filing fees plus $100 to prepare and file the Foreign Nebraska Corporation Certificate of Authority form with the Nebraska Secretary of State, Corporations Division. We also will track down the paperwork needed from your home state of incorporation to file your documents.
If you want to do the filing yourself: you just need to sign up for our registered agent service in Nebraska and you’ll find the foreign corporation form is already in your online account immediately. You’ll also find some filing tips on how to submit your documents with the state. You are required to have a Nebraska registered agent anyway, so we try to make this an easy process for you, whether you want us to submit your papers or you want to do the filing yourself.
How do I sign up?
You sign up for our registered agent service first. Next, you can look at the form for foreign corporations in your account online and also at our filing tips. If you don’t want to do the filing yourself, you can click the “Add services” tab from your account, and add our filing services for the state filing fees plus $100. You can see real time status of our work in progress in your online account at all times. Once we are done with your foreign corporation registration in Nebraska, we always upload the filing in your client account, email it to you, and send you the original filed documents by mail.
