CERTIFICATE OF GOOD STANDING OR CERTIFICATE OF STATUS?
The Certificate of Good Standing in other jurisdictions may also be referred to as a Certificate of Status or of Existence. In California, it shows that an entity is registered to do business in the state, is in compliance with applicable corporate rules and licensing requirements, and has not been suspended by the state taxing authority, the Franchise Tax Board.
HOW TO GET YOUR GOOD STANDING CERTIFICATE
Currently California doesn’t offer a way to order a Certificate of Good Standing electronically. You can only order by mail or personally through the Sacramento office. The order fee for a Certificate of Good Standing is $5 (with an extra $10 charge if you present it in person).
Requests presented in person can generally be processed by the second business day, while mailed-in requests take 5-15 business days. California does offer a Rush service for Good Standing requests.
Our firm can handle your Good Standing request, as with all of your company filings. We are located in Sacramento and make several visits daily to the Secretary of State office, to hand-deliver or receive documents.
