Certificate of Authority for South Carolina LLC

South Carolina Foreign LLC

If you have an LLC located outside of South Carolina and you want to operate in South Carolina, you will need to register your limited liability company as a foreign South Carolina LLC. Once your S Carolina application for registration paperwork is filed, the state returns a filed S Carolina certificate of authority from the Corporations Division of the South Carolina Secretary of State.

We can register your out of state LLC in South Carolina for $100
plus the state filing fee.

OR, you can do the filing yourself and just sign up with us as your South Carolina registered agent. All foreign South Carolina LLCs will require a registered agent. You can have this service for $49 a year.

Once you sign up for our South Carolina registered agent service, you will be logged into your client account where you’ll find the S Carolina foreign LLC application for registration form you need to file with the SC Secretary of State, Corporations Division.

After taking a look at the resources and forms we provide in your client account, if you do not want to actually do the South Carolina foreign LLC registration filing yourself, you can click on the add services tab in your account, and have us submit your filing for you for $100 plus state filing fees. As part of our South Carolina foreign LLC registration service, we will also obtain the correct documents from the home state of your LLC organization that we need to correctly register your foreign South Carolina LLC and obtain a S Carolina certificate of authority.
