Congratulations on taking the first step in incorporating your business! If you’re reading this, you’re probably wondering what happens now that you’ve submitted your application through Swyft Filings. 

Here’s what you can expect.

We Review Your Application and Prepare Your Documents

Our team of experts reviews your application and ensures there are no errors or missing information. If we find any issues, we’ll notify you by email. You’ll also see a rejection notification when you log into your account. If everything looks good, we’ll finalize all necessary paperwork and prepare to submit it to the state for approval.

We Submit it to the State

When we submit your application to the state, you’ll receive an email notification, and your account status will update to "FILED.” This means that the state is now processing your application.

We Charge You for Registered Agent Activation

After we submit your application, we’ll activate the services of the Registered Agent you selected during the application process. If you chose our own registered agent service, you’ll be charged $199 three days after your order.

We Wait for the State

The fact of the matter is this part of the process is dependent on your state’s speed and backlog. We’ll do everything we can to ensure they have what they need to approve your application, but we have no control over how long this takes.

We Notify You of Your State’s Response

Once the state has approved or rejected your application, we’ll notify you by email and update your Swyft Filings account status. If approved, your account status will update to “Completed,” otherwise, you’ll see your account marked as “Rejected.” 

We’ll notify you of any additional information we need from you if your application is rejected.

We Activate Any Additional Services

Once your application is approved, we’ll process any additional services you requested. Be sure to log into your account, as some services require you to complete specific questionnaires.

You Go Forth and Conquer

Congratulations! Your business is now approved and ready to go. Looking for more information to help your business succeed? Our Resource Center houses many articles, studies, and case studies to help you on your business journey. 

Thank you for choosing us to help you incorporate your business. Don’t hesitate to reach out to our team of business specialists if you have any questions throughout the process.

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.
