  • Another year end success story...

    by admin AB | Dec 26, 2014
    The staff of SOS Filings Inc. thrives on providing our clients with efficient service and using our State expertise to our customers' advantage. One of our clients was prepared to dissolve several business entities on an expedited basis. While we were certainly willing and able to accommodate him, we were able to save him over $1700 in State fees with a single phone call--not even counting what might have been owed in annual taxes!

  • Going out of business? We can file your cancellation/dissolution paperwork before 2015.

    by admin AB | Dec 26, 2014
    If you're considering ending your company, you can avoid the annual taxes for 2015 by filing your dissolution with the State before this calendar year ends.You might save over $800 per entity! Remember, the State uses the "file date" for official use--so as long as your paperwork is submitted on or before Dec 31st, your entity will be cancelled--even if the State takes a week to process and return the paperwork.
    SOS Filings makes daily trips to the Secretary of State and can help file your dissolution quickly and may well save you money in the process.
    Visit the Secretary of State's Forms website to find the cancellation/dissolution form that best suits your entity's current circumstances. You can submit forms via our Get it Filed page and we'll handle the rest from there.

  • Year end tax advantages for new companies...

    by admin AB | Dec 12, 2014
    Companies operating and registered within California are obligated to pay a minimum annual tax of $800. If, however, a company's tax year is less than 2 weeks and the company transacts no business during that time, the $800 fee can be waived. This applies to both Corporations and Limited Liability Companies. For more information on the FTB exemptions, please see FTB publications 1060 and 3556. To be eligible, filings must be submitted to the SOS December 17th through 31st.
