Registering Your Company as Foreign Entity in Minnesota
If your company is registered outside of Minnesota it is required to obtain a certificate of authority before transacting business in the state.
This process is called "Foreign Qualification", and it involves filing Certificate of Authority for a Foreign Limited Liability Company (for LLCs), or Foreign Corporation Registration Certificate of Authority to Transact Business in Minnesota (for Corporations) with the Minnesota Secretary of State.
To approve foreign qualification application Minnesota Secretary of State does not require any documents from the home state. Keep in mind, foreign entity is required to appoint and maintain a registered agent in Minnesota on file at all times in order to be in good standing.
The filing process with Minnesota Secretary of State could take about 1 business day, plus additional time for mailing.
