PROCEDURES FOR QUALIFYING A FOREIGN CORPORATION IN OKLAHOMA This information is intended as an aid to qualifying a foreign corporation to do business in the state of Oklahoma pursuant to the provisions of Title 18, Section 1130 of the Oklahoma Statutes. PLEASE CONSULT THE STATUTES CAREFULLY. The Oklahoma General Corporation Act applies to all corporations except those expressly excluded (see reverse side of this instruction sheet) and those for which special statutes are in existence with which the provisions of Title 18 may conflict. NO foreign corporation shall be formed or licensed under this act for the purpose of engaging in farming or ranching or for the purpose of owning or leasing any interest in land to be used in the business of farming or ranching. FILING PROCEDURES: 1. Prepare and file with the Secretary of State one (1) signed copy of the certificate of qualification. Attach a certificate issued by an authorized officer of the jurisdiction of its incorporation evidencing its corporate existence. This certificate is most commonly known as a Certificate of Good Standing, Certificate of Existence, or Certificate of Fact (Texas) and is usually issued by the Secretary of State's office within such jurisdiction. This certificate must be dated within the last sixty (60) days. If such certificate is in a foreign language, a translation thereof, under oath of the translator, shall be attached.

The TAC is figured by multiplying the number of shares by the par value of each share. If the TAC is $300,000.00 or less, then the filing fee is $300.00. If the TAC is greater than $300,000.00, the fee is an additional $1.00 per $1,000.00. If the Invested Capital is more than the TAC, pay ONLY on the TAC.
