Do I Needto File Anything in My State if I Incorporate in Another State?
The answer will depend in part on whether you will be doing business in California. Fictitious business names are filed with the county in which the principal place of business is located. Please check with the county for specific requirements at the following link:
Before transacting intrastate business in California, a foreign (out-of-state) business must first qualify/register with the California Secretary of State. (California Corporations Code section 2105, 15909.02, 16959 or 17451.) California Corporations Code sections 191, 15901.02(ai) and 17001(ap) define "transacting intrastate business" as entering into repeated and successive transactions of its business in this state, other than interstate or foreign commerce.
