In a Nutshell
- One of the most affordable incorporation services available
- Free year of Registered Agent Service
- Next business day processing
- Heavily focused on incorporation
- Unable to complete state requirements in every state
Incfile brings a good sense of humor to the table. On the site, Incfile states that they can't help you divorce your spouse or file a lawsuit, but they can help you open an LLC or corporation legally. While Incfile does offer other services, there is no other online legal service provider that can boast the same speed, quality, and price points.

- File annual reports
- Foreign qualifications
- Employee identification number/tax ID number
- Certificate of good standing
- Registered Agent Services
- Change of registered agent
- Trademark name search

Pricing Plans for Entity Formation
As you can see from the list above, Incfile offers a wide variety of services. These services can be billed individually on an as-needed basis.
There are also three packages from which to choose. Here are the details:
These packages provide you with everything you need to get your business up and running, including:
- Verifying your company name’s availability
- Preparing and filing of all articles
- Registered Agent Service
- Lifetime company alerts
- Online order status tracking
- Business tax consultation
- Lifetime customer support
- Business website
- Online access to incorporation documents
What we like about this service, specifically, is how much value you get for your money. Registered Agent Service normally costs upwards of $99 (sometimes that's even hourly!), and Incfile includes a full year of this service for free. The unlimited phone and email support only makes the deal that much sweeter.
Additionally, you get the convenience of online ordering and order tracking - not to mention a ton of resources for legal education. To finish things off nicely, Incfile provides next-business-day processing, so you get all of this for less than $50, and it's fast. That is a great deal.
Incfile began in 2004 and has been helping small business owners form corporations, LLCs, and nonprofits ever since. Incfile not only has more than 250,000 happy clients but is also the winner of several prestigious awards, including Entrepreneur 360's Best Company Award and the Bronze Stevie Award for the American Best Business in 2019, and they clearly deserve the recognition. With a strong focus on incorporating, Incfile really covers every detail of this complex legal process, making it easier for you to focus on your business instead of legalese.

Q: What are the filing requirements for my state?
A: To maintain a company legally within the United States, a business must meet several filing requirements. These requirements vary from one state to the next. Incfile has an extensive list of the exact requirements needed organized by state on the website, including what needs to be filed and how frequently.
Q: How much are state fee filing costs?
A: As with filing requirements, the required state fees and costs vary by state and business type. Generally, the required state fees and filing costs range from $30 (in California) to $250. However, you’ll find that there are several outliers.
Q: Do I actually need a business license?
A: Whether you are running an at-home business or building a multinational corporation, you need to meet the basic legal requirements for owning a business. This includes meeting the federal, state, and local legal requirements, paying the appropriate taxes, filing the right documents, and obtaining proper licensing. In other words, the short answer is yes.
