Illinois Corporation FAQ
Many Illinois incorporation services hide what they charge instead of showing you exactly where your money goes. We believe in transparency.
|Illinois State Filing Fee||$180|
|Our Incorporation Service Fee||$100|
|One Year Registered Agent Service||$49|
The Secretary of State charges $100 for 1-Day Expedite, plus a credit card processing fee. Order your 1-Day Corporation for $434 total.
If you order expediting and your form can’t be filed online (such as for close corporations or corporations with multiple classes of stock), we’ll walk in your Illinois Secretary of State expedited filings ourselves for FREE.
We provide all of our corporation formation clients with FREE custom business documents. Our competitors charge between $50 and $75 per document, which we think is obscene. These documents cost little to produce. Often it is nothing more than changing a header on a document and hitting print.
Corporate bylaws lay out the ownership of your corporation and the way in which it will be managed. It lists the names and addresses of your initial shareholders, their initial capital contributions, shares of stock, rights and responsibilities, and how stock can be bought and sold. It also details management structure: initial directors and officers, their rights and responsibilities, and how meetings will be managed.
A resolution is a directive from your shareholders or directors authorizing a particular action. For example, when you want to open a business bank account or purchase property, you will write a resolution authorizing a specific individual to do so.
Shareholder certificates are evidence of ownership. Each shareholder receives a certificate with the name of the company, the name of the shareholder, the amount and value of the shareholder’s stock, and any other information your shareholders deem necessary.
Your corporation will hold shareholder and director meetings throughout the year. It is crucial that an official record of these meetings is kept, especially whenever your shareholders or directors are called upon to pass a vote. Minutes are official records kept by your Secretary.
Here’s the sad truth: not every registered agent and incorporation service is created equal. At Illinois Registered Office LLC, we charge a lot less than our competitors, and sometimes prospective customers want to know why. Sounds too good to be true, right?
We charge $329 for our corporation package because we don’t believe in charging you extra for every little service. Nor do we believe in charging you extra for services that we would normally provide anyway. This is how a lot of company’s pad their margins.
Let’s take a look at just how we’re different:
Free Custom Business Documents
Most incorporation services will charge you $50 to $75 per document for simple business documents like your corporate bylaws, meeting minutes, shareholder resolutions and more. You can spend hundreds of dollars getting these from other companies.
How We’re Different:
We provide custom business documents for your Illinois corporation absolutely FREE. We already have the templates set up, and our system automatically generates the documents right after you sign up. We buy in bulk and the documents cost little to print. It would be absurd to charge you an arm and a leg for these documents.
Registered Agent: $49 Per Year
Other registered agent services in Illinois offer incredible rates, with some companies even throwing in a “free” year of service up front. What they don’t mention is how next year’s price will on average be as high $150.
How We’re Different:
Our price is $49 this year, $49 next year, $49 every year after that. We don’t believe in “introductory prices” and other gimmicks to get you in the door. We believe in quality service year after year. If we do right by you, then you’ll likely sign on again next year. That’s our business model in a nutshell.
