Incfile.com Review – 2019

Incfile.com provides an excellent service to get your business formed quickly and with less hassle. They also provide a range of useful tools and features, paid and unpaid, that can be useful throughout the life-cycle of your small business.

Incfile.com overview

With a range of packages at different price points and a clear method for deciding which is right for you, incfile.com certainly does a reasonable job of helping entrepreneurs with the legal aspects of starting a new business.

However, they are certainly more of a specialist provider than their rivals LegalZoom and RocketLawyer. If you still need to incorporate your company, incfile.com may lead the field. However, if your needs go beyond this, it’s worth considering other services with a broader range of offerings and deeper expertise in other areas.

Unlike other online legal services, incfile.com has decided to focus heavily on a single area of legal assistance: business formation. While they also offer help in other areas (such as filing annual reports or tax returns) their focus is encapsulated in their slogan, “Where Business Begins.”

If you already have a business up and running and are looking for legal support that goes beyond setting up your business, other online legal service providers may offer a stronger range of specialized features. But if you haven’t yet incorporated, incfile.com is a serious contender.

Incfile.com features

A comfortable majority of incfile.com’s features focus on the incorporation phase of your business, whether you’re still deciding on your business structure or are further along and are ready to kick off the incorporation process.

Here’s a list of all the features you’ll find in every incfile.com package:

  • Verify company name availability
  • Preparation and filing of articles
  • Next business day processing
  • Registered agent service (free for the first year)
  • Lifetime company alerts
  • Online order status tracking
  • Free business tax consultation
  • Lifetime customer support
  • Online access to incorporation documents

As with their rivals LegalZoom and RocketLawyer, incfile.com provide a simple drop-down menu for you to select what you want to do (for example, create an LLC) and the state where you want to do it.

From there, incfile.com provides you with three packages (Silver, Gold, and Platinum) to choose between.

The features of each package differ, but thanks to the helpful chart (below) there shouldn’t be any doubt about what you’re getting for your money.

Overall, using incfile.com’s features is relatively straightforward. However, compared to other online legal service providers like LegalZoom and RocketLawyer the interface is a little clunky and doesn’t feel quite as modern or streamlined. Quality technical support is available.

Incfile.com pricing

Incfile.com is somewhat more expensive than their competitors.

  • Their lowest plan (Silver) goes for $49, seems cheap, however, once you include state fees that number jumps up to $99.
  • Their most expensive plan (Platinum), costs $299 plus the state fee. It’s worth remembering that you’ll pay the state fee with almost any provider, however.

If you want to use incfile.com to file your tax return, they offer this service. However, it’s somewhat costly compared to specialist tax preparation and online filing software such as TurboTax or H&R Block.

Alternatives to Incfile.com

Incfile.com is a solid online legal service that can make your business formation process significantly smoother. However, there are other comparable services on the market.

For LLC filing and company formation, other online legal services like LegalZoom and RocketLawyer can also help you decide on the type of business entity to create with simple, easy-to-follow guidance and assistance. They also offer a broader range comprehensive services that go beyond the deliberately specialist incfile.com for when your business is up and running.

Other providers can also facilitate access to lawyers at discounted rates, functioning as a go-between connecting pre-screened legal professionals with entrepreneurs and small businesses, should you decide you need an actual attorney or lawyer. Both RocketLawyer and LegalZoom offer this facility, which is currently absent from incfile.com.

Incfile.com: The verdict

Incfile.com provide an excellent service to get your business formed quickly and with less hassle. They also provide a range of useful tools and features, paid and unpaid, that can be useful throughout the life-cycle of your small business.

With a range of packages at different price points and a clear method for deciding which is right for you, incfile.com certainly does a reasonable job of helping entrepreneurs with the legal aspects of starting a new business.

However, they are certainly more of a specialist provider than their rivals LegalZoom and RocketLawyer. If you still need to incorporate your company, incfile.com may lead the field. However, if your needs go beyond this, it’s worth considering other services with a broader range of offerings and deeper expertise in other areas.
