Business Formation FAQs

  • We will file your business formation with the state. First, our team collects and files all the necessary paperwork with the state. Then, the state processes the fling and confirms your business. Once the state approves the filing, we will deliver all documents to your ZenBusiness dashboard where you can access the digital copies or print hard copies.

  • There are two separate fees. The first is what you pay to ZenBusiness to file on your behalf. We offer different packages that include critical services to start and run your business. You can check the fees on this page. The second is state filing fee and fees vary state by state. You can use our handy calculator on this page to find your state’s filing cost. These fees we pass directly to the state.

  • Filing speed varies by state. You can estimate the time it takes to file your LLC by using this handy calculator. You can also jump the line in our queue by upgrading to expedite or rush filing for an additional fees.

  • The IRS allows up to $5,000 in startup costs to be deducted from the tax return in the year a business is opened. These business formation costs may be considered tax deductible startup expenses, but you should check with your tax professional to be sure.

  • We stand by our products with a 60-day money back guarantee. ZenBusiness will issue a full refund less any state or other third-party fees for cancellations that occur within 60 days of purchase.

  • Once we submit any paperwork to the government on your behalf, we can’t refund any filing fees. In addition, if you purchase a product through us that is serviced by a third party (such as accounting and tax preparation, registered agent services, etc.), we cannot refund fees paid to those providers.
