How long will it take to form my corporation or LLC?

The time required for your corporation or LLC to be formed will depend entirely upon the Secretary of State’s office. Many states process filings promptly and efficiently but many don’t and are very slow unless Expedited Processing is used.

If time is important, you should consider the following processing options that will substantially reduce the time required to form your business

Priority Processing

Time to process your corporation or LLC formation varies by state with routine processing taking 4 - 6 weeks or even more in the slowest states. Priority processing will reduce that time. We will put your processing ahead of non-priority processing and send your documents to the state electronically or by overnight delivery service. We will also use overnight delivery service to send your documents to you. If time is important, you should use Expedited or Rush Processing.

Expedited Processing

Time to process your corporation or LLC formation varies by state with routine processing taking 4 - 6 weeks or even more in the slowest states. Expedited Processing will reduce that time to about 10 business days or less with the exception of just a few states. Your processing will be put ahead of non priority processing and overnight delivery service will be used to send your documents to you. Your documents will either be hand delivered to the state, or sent electronically or by overnight delivery service. In addition, any expediting service offered by the state will be used (state fees may apply). If time is important, you should use Expedited or Rush Processing.

Rush Processing (in states where available)

Time to process your corporation or LLC formation varies by state with routine processing taking 4 - 6 weeks or even more in the slowest states. In states where it is available, Rush Processing will reduce the time to form your business to about 2 - 3 business days. Your processing is assigned top priority and overnight delivery service will be used to send your documents to you. Your documents will either be hand delivered to the state or sent electronically or by overnight delivery service. In addition, all state expedited and rush processing services offered will be used (state fees may apply). If time is important, you should use Expedited or Rush Processing.
