Swyft Gives Back to Hometown: Hurricane Harvey relief efforts

Updated October 24, 2022
Share this guide

We hope you will forgive us for being a little slow in getting this post up and launching this campaign. We've been a little busy. Hopefully, you have NOT noticed.

Swyft Filings is based in Houston, and despite the havoc wreaked by Hurricane Harvey on our hometown, we've done our best to keep your filings timely.

We only got access to our office today, and many members of our team have been dealing with flood waters and cleaning up in their homes. Despite this, the dedicated Swift Filings team kept at it. Part of our team even created a temporary makeshift office in the garage to keep our filings going. We have always known we have the best team in the business, and they proved it again this week. Most importantly, although we all have our stories to tell, we are all safe.

Many from the Swyft Filings team grew up in Houston and love this town. We will all tell you we have never seen or experienced anything like this and wouldn’t mind if we never do again. But, one of the things that makes this city great is its can-do attitude. We don’t care where you came from, who your momma or daddy are, or what you did before you got here. If you come here and work hard, Houston has a place for you.

The Swyft Filings team members and the cities affected by Harvey will both rebuild, recover, and go on to do even better. We've taken the initial steps to return to a sense of normalcy through help from each other, our friends, our houses of worship, or neighbors, and even complete strangers who offered a helping hand last week.

Swyft Gives Back

Now, it is time for us, as a company, to pitch in and help. That is why we are donating $1 for every order we receive during the month of September toward Houston’s recovery efforts. Once we tally that figure, we are then going to double it.

We hope you join us in these efforts. While we may not be able to match the fundraising efforts Houston Texans of J.J. Watt (we’d like to see him form a non-profitfile a 501(c)(3) applicationform an LLCform a C Corpobtain an EIN and hire a registered agentall in the first hour of the workday), we feel called to do our part.

This will be the first of our Swyft Gives Back campaigns. We will share more with you as the program develops and grows, but we are committed to helping the non-profits we've guided through the formation process grow and prosper. We hope you will join us.

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.
