Is it illegal to have a business outside the registered state of your LLC?

Asked 6 months ago

I mentioned in passing that I wanted to start doing business in a different state, and a member said that I needed to get paperwork done for it. If our LLC is already registered and operating in a different state, can’t we just do business in any other state when we want, or is it illegal to conduct business in another state?

Conducting businesses in a state other than where your business is registered qualifies your business as a foreign LLC. You must register with each state where you operate if you meet the conditions for conducting business according to that state. This could include having an office, employees, a warehouse, regular contracts, etc., in the state.
