The nation's secretaries of state perform a number of important administrative services within state government, although specific job duties vary from state to state.
Most secretaries of state are responsible for one or more of the following areas of state government: elections, business registration, licensing & regulation, legislative record keeping, and publishing. Additionally, they may oversee the operations of libraries, state facilities, state lands, and extraditions and warrants. For our purposes, we are most concerned with the business registration aspect of each particular secretary of state's duties.
When Hubco Inc. sets about the incorporation process, there are a number of steps we need to take. After we receive your incorporation order, we need to determine if the name of your new company is available within the secretary of state database. Once we determine that it is, we can fill out the official paperwork and officially file your papers with the particular secretary of state office. Depending on the amount of time it takes them to complete the filing (anywhere from 1 to 10 days), we can then send you the documents immediately after we receive them. As always, we recommend expediting your order. It's an additional $44 charge, but it prevents you from having to be subject to the delays of the normal beaurocratic process. Remember, the secretary of state is a governmental agency.
Why not eliminate the middle man? Good question. At Hubco, our job is to process your order as quickly and efficiently as possible, without the hassle of beaurocracy, and without hidden lawyer's fees. Yes, you could file directly with the particular secretary of state in your state. Or, yes, you could utilize a lawyer for this process, but, unless you're forming a large corporation with many partners and with a lot of money at stake, it probably won't be worth the costs that a lawyer would charge for this procedure.
For $99.95 plus standard state filing fees, we'll handle this whole process for you, saving you time, effort, and, especially, money. Incorporating new businesses since 1983, Hubco can help you get your new corporation started. On our incorporation order form, we give you the option of purchasing certain vital corporate supplies such as corporate seals and stamps or corporate kits, which contain your minutes and bylaws, etc. In addition, we'll provide registered agent services if you need it and we sell corporate stationary, envelopes, and pads. We urge you to give our service a try.
You need your corporation filed, there's no question about that. If you choose not to use our service to perform this service for you, you're going to need to deal directly with the particular secretary of state in the state in which you wish to form your corporation. To contact an office, we recommend visiting their website from the drop down menu above.
