The forms described below are available on our Forms, Samples and Fees webpage. Please refer to the form for complete filing instructions, fees, any additional requirements and relevant statutory filing provisions:

  • Georgia Corporation: File a Statement and Designation by Foreign Corporation (Form S&DC–S/N [for foreign general stock or nonprofit corporations], Form S&DC-PC [for foreign professional law or accountancy corporations] or Form S&DC–INS [for foreign insurer corporations) and attach to the completed form a valid certificate of good standing by an authorized public official of the foreign jurisdiction under which the foreign corporation is incorporated.
