Rates on this page apply to forming California Corporations (General Business Corporations and Subchapter S Corps) incorporated under California Corporation Code. Our California incorporation service has everything from filing, to forming and running a California Corporation. These are some of the features included ... Add any of the optional upgrades below as desired.

Preparation of California Articles of Incorporation

We send "signature-ready" Articles of Incorporation with indemnification clauses and appointing a registered agent to your email address within minutes - or - we will sign as incorporator for you. No shipping charges or delay. We file all California Corporations, over-the-counter at the Secretary of State in Sacramento.

Secretary of State Name Check

Prior to starting your corporation we run entity name clearance searches at the Secretary of State checking for conflicts with your proposed corporate name. Your proposed corporation name cannot conflict with any other corporations registered with the California Secretary of State.

Legal Incorporation date in 2 days (Same Day Available)

We will file your California corporation in person within 2-3 days (not weeks) and pay the State's Priority handling charges to shorten Secretary of State "turn-around" time from weeks to a few days. Minimizing return times means the corporation starts protecting your assets sooner. Use our Rush filing option & the Corporation starts protecting you immediately.

Complete Incorporation in a Week

As soon as the Secretary of State has approved the filing, we send by email a digital copy (PDF format) of the approved Articles with the Secretary of State seal and entity number. That way you'll have proof of incorporating and can open the corporation's bank account without waiting on physical shipment. We'll send the Incorporator's Organizational Action, California Bylaws and compliance Documentation also.

Custom California Corporation Bylaws

You will receive corporate bylaws specifically prepared for your corporation - not some inferior "one size fits all" free form or check-box variety which tend to leave you wondering if you covered all the bases. Because every state's laws are different, you want your corporation's bylaws to follow the California Code. Since you will be consulting them in the future, implementing the appropriate state-specific bylaws helps you run the corporation in accordance with state law. Your bylaws will be prepared with information you enter in the California Incorporation questionnaire.

Compliance Documents

Since the corporate code requires a California Corporation to file with the Secretary of State compliance forms on a continuing basis, we complete and provide the requisite Statement of Information and include a Federal EIN application with the incorporation documentation.

Federal EIN Application

Federal Employment Identification Number (EIN) Application is included.
