The Division of Business Services has a new online feature that allows business entities formed outside the state of Tennessee to complete an application for certificate of authority, upload a current certificate of existence from their home state and pay filing fees online using a credit or debit card.

Before today, foreign entities wanting to transact business in Tennessee had to submit filing documents and fees by mail or by visiting our Nashville office.
