Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.
If you plan to set up operations in another state, you will need to either form a totally new business entity in that state or "qualify" as a foreign (that is, out-of-state) entity to do business there. You should discuss with your accountant and attorney which approach makes the most sense for your business because they involve different costs and tax ramifications.
