California Secretary of State Business Filing and Other Services

If you want to file a new business in California, then you have a number of options for doing so. If you are not in a rush, then you can file at one of the local offices such as the one in Los Angeles. However, if you need to get your application preapproved for any reason or you want a response within a day or two then you will need to go to the California Secretary of State business offices which are located in Sacramento.

CA SOS Expedited Filing

The California Secretary of State business services include pre-approval as well as expedited filing, and they can respond to filings as rapidly as within four hours. They also have a 'same day' service for documents that have not been pre-checked, and a 24 hour service for those who have missed the early morning cut off time for a same day filing.

The fees for expedited filings start at $350, and go up to $750 for the same-day service. This fee is in addition to the regular filing fee, and if your filing is refused for whatever reason you will still be left out of pocket. For this reason, you should make sure that you provide all of the evidence needed for your filing, including the email confirming preapproval if you are trying to use the four-hour service. This will reduce the risk of delays and the risk of your application being turned back for something simple and avoidable.

The standard filing time for an LLC to be approved is 10 to 15 days, and the fee at the time of writing is just $70. So if you put your application in well ahead of when you expect to need it, you should find that things go a lot more smoothly for you and you save a lot of money.
