Warning #1: "File-only" shops. Most of our smaller competitors simply file your initial paperwork with the state (if it doesn’t get rejected — less than 1% of our filings are rejected) and send you a copy. This is not the complete process. There are step-by-step procedures (holding an organizational meeting, issuing shares, adopting Bylaws or Operating Agreements, etc.) for properly setting up your company that must be completed. In fact, not doing these procedures will nullify most of the benefits of incorporating or forming an LLC in the first place.
Warning #2: Do the math! Find out the actual state fee (which you can view on our site). You’ll discover that those $49 and $75 services are actually hiding considerable fees within the state fee. Be especially vigilant for "Rush", "Expedited" and "Delivery" fees which can be outrageously high.
