If you don’t register your business, you may owe fines, interest, and back taxes. You can also lose the ability to sue in that state. Plus, it could mean your personal assets will no longer be protected from business liabilities within the foreign state.
You must foreign qualify whenever you’re “doing business” in a state. Although we recommend the advice of an attorney, you’ll probably need to foreign qualify if you have either employees or a physical presence in the new state, or if you routinely accept orders or execute contracts there.
