  • 15 day exception for new LLCs and Corporations

    by admin AB | Dec 03, 2014
    New corporations and limited liability companies active within California are required to pay a minimum annual tax of $800 to the Franchise Tax Board. However, if a company's tax year is 15 days or less and the company conducts no business during that period, the $800 minimum tax is waived. This means that entities created between December 17th-31st may have a formation date of 2014, but not be liable for 2014 taxes. More information is available at the FTB's website for corporations and LLCs. If you would like to form a new business entity during this period, SOS Filings will now offer date-specific filings for Dec. 17th (the first day in which the tax waiver applies to new companies), Dec. 31st and Jan. 2nd. To take advantage of this service, mention your date request in the details section of the order form.

  • Beat the Holiday Rush

    by admin AB | Nov 24, 2014
    The Secretary of State wait times are expected to significantly lengthen as the year draws to a close. The current processing times are still running at about a week, but come mid-December wait times for formations, records requests, and statements of information may average 6-8 weeks. If you're looking to start a new LLC or Corporation we recommend submitting your documents early--especially if you need the documents back quickly.
    Even during the delayed times SOS Filings does work with the Secretary of State's expedited option. This carries a 24 hour state processing time but incurs a non-refundable $350 state fee.
