Here’s what to expect when you incorporate online with BizFilings — 5 steps to online incorporation.
We’ll email you at different points in the process or you can check the status of your order anytime
in our Online Status Center.
We ensure that all the information you provided during the order process meets state requirements. We’ll contact you before we prepare your filing if we see any issues.
Next, we conduct a preliminary name check to see whether the business name you’ve selected is available in your state of incorporation. Final approval of your name will be granted by the state.
We prepare your incorporation documents and send them to the state agency. State approval and processing times vary, but can be fulfilled within 10 business days with expedited service. Once we received your state-approved incorporation documents back, they are immediately available in our Online Status Center.
A complete package of documents and materials is then shipped to you. In addition to your incorporation documents, this will include company form templates specific to the business type you chose to help you comply with ongoing formalities.
After incorporating, you’re ready to formalize your business, such as by holding initial meetings and issuing ownership shares/certificates. Also, make sure you have any necessary licenses and permits, and continue to meet ongoing compliance requirements.
