In this review, we discuss the LegalZoom LLC packages. We take a deeper look at their fine print. And we discuss if LegalZoom is the best option to form an LLC, or if it’s a better idea to go with an alternative.
Is ZenBusiness a good choice for LLC services and registered agent services? Their services offer many pros, and only one real con – the confusing pricing of their auto-renewing subscriptions. Besides this, however, ZenBusiness is a good choice. Their packages offer plenty of features at reasonable initial prices. And you can avoid certain upsells by doing some filings yourself.
MyCompanyWorks is a good choice for LLC formation services, especially if you’re looking to get a DBA. Their Basic Package gives you more value than the entry-level packages offered by most competitors, even though it costs about the same. MyCompanyWorks also has very quick turnaround times, and can be your Registered Agent. In our opinion, MyCompanyWorks offers a lot of extra features for free and has some quality additional services.
We didn’t find anything particularly troubling or problematic about Corpnet. But, on the other hand, nothing about their service really stood out to us. The Basic package isn’t a good value because it doesn’t include the same business formation services offered by competitors in their cheapest LLC formation package. And the other packages have high service fees that aren’t justified by the extras included.
IncFile is a decent choice for Registered Agent and business formation services. In fact, their basic Silver plan is one of the best values in the industry because it comes with a free year of Registered Agent service and you don’t pay IncFile any service fees (unless you purchase additional products).
So if you want to save time by having a company form your LLC, IncFile is a good, cheap option. However, IncFile’s customer service isn’t the best and their refund policy is pretty strict.
All things considered, our Swyft Filings research determined they are a decent choice overall for LLC formation services and Registered Agent services. The services they offer are fairly standard for the industry, and so are their prices.
The benefits of choosing Swyft Filings include their quick processing times and solid customer service. The biggest drawbacks include their constant upselling and their misleading terms of service.
Rocket Lawyer offers a collection of templated legal documents and other quality legal services from licensed attorneys. If you pay for membership, you can access their online legal service and get legal advice from licensed attorneys who work in many different practice areas.
Some of Rocket Lawyer’s legal services – like LLC formation filings – are available to non-subscribers.
You’ve probably seen lots of websites talking about IncFile, especially because of their “free” formation package. We looked at the LLC service alternatives to help you make an informed choice.
When you compare IncAuthority vs LegalZoom, IncAuthority is the clear winner.
IncAuthority has more understandable website language, lower prices, and better customer service than LegalZoom. IncFile’s free LLC formation package also includes a free year of Registered Agent service. With LegalZoom’s basic formation service, their Registered Agent service is a separate add-on priced at $249.
Nolo clearly outshines LegalZoom with customer support, faster turnaround times, and an overall more pleasant experience. Although neither company has competitive pricing when compared to other LLC formation companies, Nolo’s prices were better than LegalZoom’s. And Nolo has a much better document library that offers actual reusable templates, whereas LegalZoom requires you to get a new template every time.
