A long form good standing certificate is a formal document that lists the status of the entity (like a regular short form good standing certificate) and also provides a list of all documents on file and the date each document was filed. It can be used to compare against certified copies of a corporate record to ensure that you have a complete file.
A common misconception regarding long form good standing certificates is that copies of the documents on file are attached. However, obtaining plain or certified copies of the files requires a separate order from the state. Furthermore, long form certificates are not available in every state.
