According to the regulations, if you have a business activity in a state other than where your company is registered, then you must register your company in that other state also. This is called a “foreign-filing”. Generally, you are “doing business” in another state if:
- you operate an office or shop in that state;
- you are often physically in that other state to meet clients;
- a significant part of your revenue comes from that other State;
- if you have an employee in that other State.
Note: online sales or soft services usually do not require registration in states other than that of the company headquarters.
