Certificate of Authority – Tennessee LLC
Tennessee Foreign LLC
If you own an LLC located outside of Tennessee and you want to do business in Tennessee, you will register your LLC as a Tennessee foreign LLC. Once your paperwork is filed, the state returns a filed certificate of authority from the Tennessee Secretary of State, Corporations Division.
As your registered agent, we can register your foreign Tennessee LLC for $100 plus the state filing fee.
OR, you can do the filing yourself, and just hire us as your registered agent in Tennessee. All foreign LLCs in Tennessee will require a registered agent. We offer this service for $49 a year.
Once you sign up for Tennessee registered agent service, you will be logged into your client account online where you’ll find the foreign Tennessee LLC form you file with the Corporations Division of the Tennessee Secretary of State to get your certificate of authority.
After taking a look at the resources we provide in your client account, if you do not want to actually file the paperwork yourself, you can find and click on the add services tab in your client account, and have us submit your filing for you for $100 plus the filing fees. As part of that service, we will also locate the correct documentation from the home state of your LLC organization that we need to properly register you with the Tennessee Secretary of State.
