San Luis Obispo Corporate Law Attorneys Announce Considerations for Expanding Business to Other States

SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif., June 20, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- As concerns regarding COVID-19 ease, the economy appears primed to grow quickly business owners may be tempted to expand their business to states other than California. Some states are more friendly to new businesses, and opening a new office or plant in one of those states is tempting, but the San Luis Obispo corporate law attorneys from Toews Law Group, Inc. caution that moving too quickly may result in legal issues that can hamper business growth.

Expanding your business to another state is not as simple as merely opening a new storefront. Each state has specific requirements regarding what is required to qualify to do business within its territory. This is true for both traditional brick-and-mortar business and those that operate within the online marketplace.

More and more businesses are finding it easier to generate business without ever leaving the office in their home states. Because of online business growth, most states have laws that require out-of-state sellers to collect and remit sales tax and this means these states need ways to track those businesses that sell merchandise to customers in those specific states.

Whether opening a store or office in another state, owning income-producing property as a California company or selling merchandise online, most states, at the minimum require a business to register as a "foreign entity" with that state's secretary of state. That should be easy, right? Just look up a state's requirements and file all the proper paperwork.

Not necessarily. The San Luis Obispo corporate law attorneys advise that each of the common business structures described below are treated in different ways:

The best strategy for each of these businesses is different. Specific questions need to be asked and answered before moving forward with qualifying as a foreign entity with that state's secretary of state.

What is the best strategy for a large online retail business to accurately pay each state's applicable sales tax?

And finally, once all these questions are answered, what is that state's registration requirement? What forms need to be completed, fees paid, are there bond requirements, who will serve as agent for service of process? A consultation with a qualified attorney such as the San Luis Obispo corporate law attorneys is going to answer these, and more, questions.

In short, there is a lot of planning that needs to happen before making expanding to another state. Growing your business is a good thing, but you also need to make sure that the growth and expansion happens in as trouble-free a manner as possible.
