Alaska Statement of Domestication A Foreign (non-Alaskan) Professional Corp. Domesticating to a Domestic (Alaskan) Professional Corp. | Form 08-0593

An Alaska Statement of Domestication A Foreign (non-Alaskan) Professional Corp. Domesticating to a Domestic (Alaskan) Professional Corp. | Form 08-0593 will allow a foreign professional corporation to domesticate to an Alaskan professional corporation. A foreign professional corporation may not function within the State of Alaska unless it has submitted this domestication statement along with the accompanying articles of incorporation. However some criteria must be met for such a successful transition to take place. For instance this statement may only be filed if all biennial reports have been filed, the corporation is in good standing and is a qualified entity, if all the officials listed are up to date, if the registered agent is also up to date.

A qualified entity will be one who operates in one of the following fields or as one of these professions: acupuncture, architecture, engineer, land surveyor, audiologist, chiropractor, dental, dispensing optician, geologist, legal services, marital family therapy, medical, naturopath, nursing, optometry, pharmacy, physical/occupational therapy, physicians assistant, professional counselor, psychology, public accountant, social work, veterinary.

Other requirements will also apply. For instance, in order to operate any type of business in Alaska, an entity must first obtain a business license. Many professions may also need a professional license so it is important that one is abreast of one’s requirements placed by the Corporate Section of the Alaskan State Government and other interested entities such as the I.R.S. If one has any questions regarding the domestication process, it is generally recommended to seek legal advice prior to attempting to do so.
