Filled but it takes weeks, do I still get paid after performing work while my business wasn't being in good standing?
I've since filled the back taxes and paid the fees but reinstatement takes two weeks.
What is the procedure?
If you performed work for a client while your business was not in good standing, you may still be entitled to payment for the work you performed. However, the specific procedures and requirements for payment may depend on the terms of your contract with the client and any applicable state or local laws.
In general, if you performed work for a client and fulfilled your contractual obligations, you may be entitled to payment for the work, even if your business was not in good standing at the time. However, if the client has a policy of only doing business with companies that are in good standing, they may be within their rights to withhold payment until your business is reinstated.
To ensure that you receive payment for your work, it is important to communicate with your client and keep them informed of your efforts to reinstate your business. You may also want to consult with a business attorney or accountant to ensure that you are in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations.
If you have concerns about payment for work performed while your business was not in good standing, it is recommended that you consult with a qualified legal or financial professional who can provide guidance specific to your situation.
