Certificate of Good Standing

A Certificate of Good Standing is an official document that verifies a business entity’s legal establishment and ongoing compliance with the state’s statutory requirements and regulations. This certification serves as an authoritative third-party attestation of the organization’s legitimate existence and its adherence to the mandated rules and standards.

Such certificates are commonly requested in various scenarios, including when a business owner seeks to conduct operations across state boundaries, applies for specific licenses or permits, enters into significant contractual agreements, or pursues activities such as mergers or acquisitions. The Certificate of Good Standing assures external parties that the entity in question is duly formed, properly registered, and operating within the law. A certificate can be requested from the Nebraska Secretary of State.
