We have a client in New Jersey that ghosted on us now that it's time to collect on our bill, and I suspect they are out of business. I doubt we'll get paid, and it's small enough that it's probably not worth pursuing via courts, but to close the matter out we would typically confirm via the state's business registration website that the company is inactive prior to writing the amount off.
Either I'm dense and not finding the right place on the website or New Jersey charges you to order a "status report" on a business registered in the state. Can someone confirm for me if there is an easy way to check the current status of a New Jersey business?
