Price of Business Formation Packages
BizFilings charges $99 for their Basic Package; $229 for most Standard Packages (Delaware is only $159) and $359 for most Complete Packages (Nevada and Delaware are $284 and $199 respectively). Our BizFilings Review determined that the BizFilings price points are consistent with their online competitors. The basic package is just that, basic. It includes the preparation and filing of the articles of incorporation and 6 months of free registered agent services (you can add in any additional services you desire). The higher priced packages include more services and offer a discount for the bundle of services.

Neat Feature # 1: Incorporation Wizard
BizFilings offers a free service they call “Incorporation Wizard.” This is essentially a questionnaire that helps you choose which entity type is best for you and your business. This is a great feature because many customers are unsure of which entity is best for their business and desire a little guidance.
Neat Feature # 2: Business Start-Up Checklist
Another neat feature offered by BizFilings is their Business Start-Up Checklist. This is a 19-point checklist to help you with your new business entity.
BizFilings offers customer support Monday through Friday 8:00am to 7:00pm CST via phone (800-981-7183), email and chat. We prefer picking up the phone to ask questions, but the chat feature is a great resource too.
Unlike some of their competitors, BizFilings offers state-specific information to their customers. This is very helpful and important because each state has different rules and procedures.
Other Business Related Services

Our review of BizFilings discovered that BizFilings had 5 complaints in the last three years (as of October 2015) according to the Better Business Bureau…all of which have been resolved. While we would like to see zero complaints, 5 is amazingly low considering how many customers they have serviced over the years (over 500,000 since 1996).
