Here at Swyft Filings, our mission is to go above and beyond so you and your business can, too. One of our core values is empathy. We describe it as: ”We will put people first and care for our colleagues and customers as human beings. We consider the business of our customers to be of greater importance than our own.”

Having a mission and core values are easy in good times. Times like this, however, are where we prove that our mission and values are more than just corporate exercises. We know our customers are hurting and so we want to give back.

Swyft Filings is providing five $1,000 grants

To be eligible, you need to be a new or current Swyft Filings customer. No new purchase is required. To apply, send us no more than 500 words to our [email protected] email and answer these questions:

  1. How has the COVID-19 Pandemic affected your business?

  2. How would a Swyft Gives Back $1,000 grant make a difference in your business?

Another core value of Swyft Filings is to be Knowledgeable and Dependable. We describe that core value as: “Our customer-obsessed mentality requires us to be knowledgeable. Without that, we cannot be a dependable and trustworthy source for our customers. Mere satisfaction is not our goal. Our goal is for our customers to come away confident, assured, empowered and a little more knowledgeable so they can continue to grow.”  To live out this core value, we are constantly providing helpful information on our Learning Center, on FacebookLinkedIn, and Twitter. If you have additional questions during this time, reach out to [email protected] and we will try to provide answers through one of these channels. If you have the question, there is a good chance some of our other 100,000 customers do, too. You can also always reach out to us via phone or chat on our website. 

We will accept entries until midnight CST on April 20, 2020, and our intent is to announce the winner(s) by no later than May 15, 2020, but expect to announce winners each week beginning April 20, 2020.

Life at Swyft
How much does it cost to form a corporation or LLC?

You can form a corporation or LLC with our help for as little as $0, plus state filing fees for incorporation. Filing fees vary depending on the state you incorporate in. For more information on specific states, check out our state guides on the Swyft Resource Center. You can also email us with specific questions or contact us at 877-777-0450.

What payment methods do you accept?

Swyft Filings accepts payment through Visa, MasterCard, American Express, PayPal, checks, and money orders. You can send any questions about payment to our email address or contact us at 877-777-0450.

Will I have to pay additional fees to Swyft Filings after completing my order?

It depends on what you ordered. If all you did was file your corporation or LLC, the price you paid when ordering is all you pay. You will have no further fees after that.

However, if you signed up for the Swyft Filings Registered Agent Service, you will be charged its initial fee three days after you place your order. From then on, you will be charged according to the terms of your subscription until you change your registered agent with the state or dissolve your company. If you change your agent or dissolve your company on your own, let us know so we can discontinue billing.

Other potential subscription-based options include SnapMailbox, 360 Legal Forms, and ComplianceGuard. If you opt for SnapMailbox or 360 Legal Forms, you will be charged a monthly fee after their respective 30-day free trials end. ComplianceGuard has an annual fee after a 14-day free trial. All three of these services are completely optional.

When will my order be processed?

Our team processes all Standard orders on a first come, first served basis. If you opt for Express or Same-Day Processing, we prioritize your order and send it to the front of the line. However, no matter how fast we get it out the door, you’ll still have to wait for your state to address your filing.
