Should I Register to do Business in Another State?

What if you incorporate your Company in Delaware or New York, but you operate from another state? You may ask yourself whether you should register for authority to do business in that state as well. 

Generally speaking, if you are operating a business by yourself and providing services across the web such as e-commerce, marketing, software development, or even other services such as graphic design, photography, etc. you do NOT need to register.

However, if you have physical operations in another state: for instance you take out a lease on office space, or you hire and put employees on payroll, then the local authorities will be aware that you are operating in the state. In that case, you SHOULD register to do business in the state where your operations are taking place. We can help! Please reach out to our partner law firm: spencer@generalstandards.co
