Certificate of Good Standing

Sometimes called a Certificate of Existence or Certificate of Authorization, a Certificate of Good Standing is a statement, on paper, from the Delaware Secretary of State, that a company legally exists as a Delaware Corporation or Limited Liability Company, and is in good standing with the State of Delaware. This document may be required by another state or country when you register with them as a foreign company planning on doing business in their jurisdiction. A bank may also request a Certificate of Good Standing when you open a business account.

This certificate can be ordered as a stand-alone product, or as an optional item when forming a new entity with us.

Delaware Intercorp has a direct line to the Delaware Secretary of State‚Äôs computer and can offer same day service without any rush fees in most cases as long as your entity is in good standing status, and PDF delivery.  This is a tremendous cost and time saver to faxing or mailing your request to the State with expedited service and waiting for return physical delivery.

No need for us to be your registered agent, we offer certificate retrieval for $35 plus the $50 Delaware state fee to anyone that needs assistance!

Although this certificate cannot be ordered online as a stand-alone product, it's quick and easy to place an order.  Contact us with your company name by phone at 302-266-9367 or email us at
