Only a lawyer can provide you with a full name search. This search covers you for liability, not just whether the name is available in your state. We search the Secretary of State’s registry, local DBAs, and the trademark offices. This makes sure your name is available AND it is not infringing on someone else’s trademark.
We work directly with you to ensure your articles are exactly what you need for your business.
For some reason, other places charge you extra for a tax ID (EIN) from the IRS. Every company should have an EIN. Therefore, it’s included. No extra cost.
We provide all of our clients with a starter governing document. LLCs have operating agreements and corporations have bylaws. Our starter docs are sufficient for starting a bank account.
Lawyers must do what is in the best interest of their clients. That means we never sell you something you don’t need. These services are confidential. And, we are obligated to clearly communicate with you.
We don’t know why other places try to sell you things like a stock certificate or rubber stamps, but they’re not legally required in North Carolina. They also add complexity to your business you don’t need.
That includes filing fee and everything listed here. If you want us to be your registered agent, we can do that for an additional $50/year.
