District of Columbia Company Search
We can provide a Columbia Company Search Report including the company registration details, company status, registered agent, filing history and a copy of the last business entity report filed with the District of Columbia State Department.
Company Not in Good Standing
If the Columbia company is not in Good Standing and a Good Standing Certificate cannot be issued by the District of Columbia, we will instead provide a copy of the Company File showing the current company status.
If the status of the company is revoked, it means that the entity has not maintained a registered agent and/or did not file the required biennial report with the District of Columbia Corporations Division. Entities in revoked status may not operate in the District of Columbia until they are reinstated.
