New Jersey Standing Certificate FAQs

  1. 1. How much does a New Jersey Standing Certificate cost?

    Corporate and limited partnership Standing Certificates (Includes short- and long-form standings) cost $25. A short-form Standing Certificate of LLCs and LLPs is $50, while a long-form Standing Certificate of LLCs and LLPs is $100. There’s also a $2 portal fee per CGS.

  2. 2. How long will it take to get my New Jersey Standing Certificate?

    You should receive the certificate immediately after payment.

  3. 3. Can I expedite a New Jersey Standing Certificate request?

    There’s no need to expedite the certificate since the online process is immediate.

  4. 4. Is a Standing Certificate required to stay compliant in New Jersey?

    No. A certificate isn’t required to stay compliant in New Jersey. It’s the opposite. If you want to request a CGS you need to stay compliant and have a good standing with the state. This involves paying local and state taxes, owning appropriate licenses and permits, and filling out your corporation or LLC’s annual report.

Why Trainers Should Create an LLC

As a fitness trainer, it’s important to protect yourself from any risks involved in your job. These can sometimes lead to debts or legal judgements against your business.

Setting up your business as an LLC decreases this risk by separating your personal assets from your business assets. That means your personal earnings, savings, and properties are better protected if your business ever falls into debt or gets sued.

Form your LLC with us today to protect your assets at our special discounted rates.
