Most Helpful Positive User Review
“I have always wanted to be my own boss so I decided to man up and start my own business. I tried to file my LLC directly with the state but found it way too difficult to attain the right forms; not to mention guidance as to forming an LLC or a corporation. I found IncFile online to be the cheapest so I went with them. I called the number no answer but I did leave a message. I received a call back within the hour and talked to Dustin. He was very knowledgeable in corps and which states are the best to incorporate in. I don’t know if my business will be profitable but at least I’m set up to succeed.”

Most Helpful Negative User Review
“I paid $138 for my LLC’s annual report in JANUARY of this year. I have called and emailed several times with NO response whatsoever. I want to know where my paperwork is for this year. At some point I found a status that said my paperwork was shipped sometime in January, but I never received anything. The customer service at IncFile is the worst. If I can figure out a way to transfer my business transactions to another company, I will be doing that. I would HIGHLY NOT RECOMMEND using IncFile if you expect to ever talk to someone. Emails and phone calls fall on deaf ears.”

In the chart above, we compared a few of the most important features among the three plans that IncFile offers. All three plans offered a wide variety of legal services for free; however, there are some additional charges that may need to be dealt with should you want the full service.
The most important additions that one should avail of are the Employer Identification Number/ Tax ID and the banking resolution. For most small businesses, these items are complex, which means that IncFile can help acquire them quickly and efficiently.
Best Pricing Option for Small Business Owners
Small business owners, especially new ones, should access the Gold Plan so that they can learn from the IncFile as they go. If they choose the Silver Plan, they may have to spend more time studying the steps and documentations needed to accomplish the requirements to establish their LLC. However, the silver is ideal for businesses who just need preparation and filing. When choosing the best plan for your business, consider the time you can allot to accomplish these requirements and the size and industry of your business as well.
