What is Foreign Registration?

Foreign registration, also known as foreign entity registration or foreign qualification, is a legal requirement imposed on nonprofit organizations intending to transact business in states other than their state of incorporation.

This registration is essential for establishing legal standing and adhering to various state-specific laws, regulations, and tax obligations.
