Hi, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be glad to assist you,


Under Texas law, any business entity that was not organized under the laws of Texas is considered a "foreign company". This includes business entities that were formed in another State or in a country outside the United States. They are permitted to do business in Texas if they register their company with the Texas Secretary of State. The authority for this is found in the Texas Business Organizations Code and specifically, Section 9.001



Texas Business Organizations Code Section 9.001 lists the type of foreign business entities which are required to file an application for registration with the Texas Secretary of State if they want to "transact" business in the State of Texas:

  • corporations;
  • limited partnerships;
  • limited liability partnerships;
  • limited liability companies;
  • business trusts;
  • real estate investment trusts;
  • cooperatives;
  • public or private limited companies;
  • any other foreign entity that, if formed in Texas, would be formed as a corporation, limited partnership, limited liability company, professional association, cooperative, or real estate investment trust; and
  • any other foreign entity that affords limited liability under the law of its jurisdiction of formation for any owner or member.
