This is what Delaware State charges to file a new company.
You read this correctly! We do not charge you anything to form your company for you!
We pride ourselves on supplying you with a lawyer-drawn-up Certificate of Incorpration/Formation that is one succinct page that includes the Articles of your company and your name & address. Banks like our comprehensive Certificates of Incorporation/Formation because they like to see that your name is on the face of the Certificate that has been filed with the State.
If your first or second choice names are not available we will contact you and together we will find a company name that is available in Delaware.
VALIS uses a high encryption SSL Certificate to ensure that information passed between you and our server is secure and safe with us.
We are always available to answer your questions during office hours: 9am to 5pm PST Monday to Friday. We welcome your questions!
We upload your corporate documents in PDF format to your Secure Corporate Document Vault in your Members area so you can view or print them at any time.
You can upload your corporate documents in PDF format to your Secure Corporate Document Vault in your Members area too so that everything is in one place and you always have access to them.
Available for FREE in your Members area, once your company has been formed.
Delaware requires that each Delaware Corporation or LLC have a physical office in Delaware, if you don't live and work in Delaware then you must have a Registered Agent with a physical office in Delaware. A few times a year Delaware State will send us, your Registered Agent, mail for you - which we will forward to you wherever you are world-wide. Our Registered Agent services for the rest of the calendar year are included FREE if you purchase the Deluxe or USBPP Package.
We prefer to form our client's companies with expedited 24-hour filing with Delaware State so you don't have to wait three to six weeks to see your Certificate of Incorporation/Formation, which is what happens if we file it with 'regular' filing. When we file your company with expedited 24-hour filing you'll have a PDF of your filed and stamped Certificate of Incorporation/Formation within three business days - usually only two business days - uploaded to your Members area.
A Certified sheet from the Delaware Secretary of State is attached to your Certifcate of Incorporation/Formation that state certifies that your Certificate of Inc/Form is a true and correct copy. It has an identification number that is verifiable online at the State's website too. USA Banks require this extra document.
We will FedEx your State documents to you wherever you are in the world. On average, you will have your documents in your hands within 7 business days. Your FedEx Tracking # will be available for you to see from your Mail Transaction area online through your VALIS Member's Account.
Includes 15 imprinted Stock Certificates (for Corporations) or Membership Certificates (for LLCs), sample minutes, by-laws and other forms, all in a vinyl minute book binder and slipcase with company name imprinted in gold. Plus a metal seal embosser imprinted with your Company Name.
We will FedEx your State documents and your Corporate Kit to you wherever you are in the world. On average, you will have your documents and kit in your hands within 7 business days. Your FedEx Tracking # will be available for you to see from your Mail Transaction area online through your VALIS Member's Account.
We will mail your State documents and your Corporate Kit to you via USPS regular airmail. Shipping times vary from country to country. No tracking available.
An EIN (Employer Identification Number) is a Federal Tax ID # for your Delaware Company. You'll need one if you want to setup a US Corporate bank account or setup a US Business PayPal account - or if your supplier or any other authority asks you for your Tax ID #. We can retrieve your EIN for you and supply you with an EIN letter from the IRS, too, within one business day. PLEASE NOTE: We can retrieve an EIN for a Corporation, but owners of LLCs have to provide a US Tax ID for the owner/filers to get an EIN for an LLC. An EIN is the corporate equivalent of a personal SSN.
You'll need this service if you require a real, physical US address for your US business. (not a PO Box #) We will forward all flat mail and packages under 30 lbs to your home/office address. Good for your: website, US bank, US PayPal account, eBay, suppliers, clients.. It completes your US Business Presence.
An Apostille is an internationally recognized Certification, in compliance with the Hague Convention in Switzerland, that authenticates your Certificate of Incorporation/Formation. We suggest that you add an Apostille to your order if you need to provide your company documents anywhere outside the USA, especially if you want to open a bank account for your Delaware company outside of the US. Requires a Certified Copy before it can be Apostilled.
If you don't want your name and address to appear on the face of the Certificate of Incorporation/Formation that is filed with Delaware State we can file it anonymously for you. US banks may not like this. We will, of course, supply you with a plain copy of the Statement of Incorporator/Organizer that associates your name with your company name, signed by us, your Registered Agent.
