Business incorporation services

Protect your assets and prepare your business for payroll

Incorporating your business and applying for federal and state identification numbers should be among the first steps you take as a new business owner. Incorporation can help protect your personal and business assets and add legitimacy to your company, and you’ll need certain identification numbers in order to run payroll.

These are some of the reasons we've partnered with MyCorporation, a leading provider of online document filing services, to make it fast and easy for business owners and entrepreneurs to form a corporation or limited liability company (LLC), without spending money on an attorney.

  • Protect personal assets

    Forming a corporation or LLC effectively turns your business into its own separate legal entity, meaning it’s responsible for its own debts and obligations.

  • Add credibility to your business

    Simply adding three letters, “Inc.” or “LLC,” to your business name can help it build credibility both with your customers and potential investors.

  • Get paperwork necessary for payroll

    In order to run payroll, you’ll need a verified Federal Employer Identification Number (FEIN) and state ID numbers for withholding and SUI.
