The discount does not apply to Registered Agent Service purchased separately.
A legal requirement for handling state, tax and legal documents, most states require business to have a registered agent in the state where the business is incorporated. The registered agent must have a physical address in the state of incorporation (no P.O. boxes) and be available during normal business hours.
Selecting BizFilings as your registered agent not only ensures prompt and efficient handling of these important documents, but also helps your business stay "in good standing" with the state, meaning compliant with state requirements. After the 6 months expire the annual fee is $167.
Registering a business name is an important step that requires careful consideration. The name helps customers find you, understand what you do and remember your company. Before moving forward with your company name to create a website, business cards and other materials, it is important to check if your desired name is available to be registered in the state where you wish to incorporate. Your desired business name could already be in use in your chosen state of formation.
Your business name must also be distinguishable in state records, meaning it cannot be substantially similar to business names already in use in that state by another company that is incorporated or registered to transact business there. If your name is not unique or is already in use, the state will not register the business name and will reject your companyпїЅs incorporation documents.
