  • Expedited Filings at the California Secretary of State

    by admin AB | Sep 23, 2014
    The Secretary of State is currently taking 5-7 business days to process most business entity filings. However, expedited processing is available for filing requests at most public State counters. SOS Filings Inc. can personally hand deliver your documents to the State's main office in Sacramento and pick up the processed file the following day and send you electronic copies that same afternoon.  The State does charge an additional $350 fee for their expedited processing, but documents submitted this way carry a guaranteed 24 hour turnaround. This means the your business can officially be formed, amended, or dissolved in one business day. To submit your filing simply select "Expedited" in the processing field of our Get It Filed order form or Contact Us for more information.

  • Rejection Prevention Tip #9: Drafting Articles

    by admin AB | Sep 17, 2014
    By law, some entities are entitled to draft their own Articles while others are compelled to use forms supplied by the State. Corporations, including non-profits, may right their own Articles, so long as they follow the requirements listed in the State's Corporate Filings Guide. However, we strongly caution against this, as errors and consequent rejections are far more common in filings written by individuals. To avoid these mistakes we strongly encourage all types of entities to use the forms available at the State's website and read the Corporate and LLC Filings Tips associated with your type of business.
