Frequently asked questions
  • What is a certified copy?
    It’s an exact replica of the documents you received from the state when you incorporated or foreign qualified your business. Unlike a copy you make yourself, a certified copy bears the state seal. You can also request certified copies of other documents to distinguish them with an air of decorum.
  • When are certified copies necessary?
    Most states require them to register (or foreign qualify) in that state. Banks and financing partners generally require official proof of your existence to begin transactions. You can also use them to replace lost documents or those that lack an elegant appearance, such as damaged or electronic documents.
  • How long does it take to get a certified copy?
    Some states fulfill the request in a matter of days; others take up to six weeks. CT's compliance specialists will monitor the process in each state and work with you to ensure everything is moving as quickly and efficiently as possible.
