Forming an LLC in California
Thinking about filing your LLC in the state of California? Sounds great! We put together some handy information for you to easily answer most frequently asked questions people have about filing a new LLC in California.
How long does it take?
Luckily, California has gotten a lot better over the last couple years for the time it takes them to process your documents. The typical filing times are as listed below:
Regular Filing Time: 14-20 Days
Expedited Filing Time: 3-6 Days – $29.00 Additional
Super Expedited Filing Time: 1-2 Days -$480.00 Additional
Of course filing times may vary. Certain times of the year may have shorter or longer wait times depending on how busy the Secretary of State’s office is. The busiest times when the wait time is the longest is generally between November and April. During that time period, you may have to wait a few extra days for your LLC to come back filed. However the rest of the year will experience a shorter wait time!
How much does it cost?
The filing fees in California are thankfully not too bad. The state fee for a new LLC is only $70.00. As a rule, we always go ahead and pay the extra $5.00 for the certified copy.
