A Single platform Of Foreign Entity Setup

We Simplify A Complicated World With The Best Foreign Entity Setup Services

A foreign entity is one that was formed in a state apart from that in which the company was originally incorporated. As an example, if you have a registered corporation, but want to expand into Bangladesh, then your corporation would have to file as a Foreign Entity within Bangladesh. This is also called “foreign qualification” or “applying for authority to conduct business” in Bangladesh.


There are penalties for transacting business without a Certificate of Authority, right?

Definitely. Without an authority certificate:

  1. Once the entity is registered, it cannot maintain an action, suit, or proceeding in court.
  2. It may be enjoined from conducting business in the state by the Attorney General.
  3. If the entity had registered when first required, it would have been subject to a civil penalty equal to all fees and taxes.
  4. An entity that has transacted business in the state for more than ninety (90) days may have to pay a late filing fee equal to the registration fee for each year or part year it has been delinquent. 

 How Do We Register Foreign Entity Properly?

You need to file an application with the relevant authorities and pay a fee in order to register a foreign entity. Most states require the disclosure of the company’s name, state of incorporation/organization, and the name and address of the registered agent in the state for which the application is being made. The process was simplified for the convenience of our clients.
