Corporate transactions often come with legal and tax implications. Mistakes during the domestication process could pierce your corporate veil or discourage potential investors. Your corporation could even be liquidated or dissolved. It’s always worth the effort to find a qualified lawyer to assist you.
Pro Tip: Do you need a certificate of good standing from Massachusetts? Some online resources claim that you need a certificate of good standing, but this document is not needed to domesticate a Massachusetts corporation to Florida. The company must, however, be in good standing with the State of Massachusetts.
