You work only with me, not an Incorporation Specialist or Salesperson:

I do all the work myself. I do not employ Incorporation Specialists or a Sales Team. I have 23 years experience incorporating new businesses in Bakersfield, California. I offer full service Business Formation Services only in the State of California. 

A complete Business Formation for one set fee!

I don't offer any upgraded or downgraded services and have only one fee structure to do the job right. If your Business Formation requires federal and state identification numbers, payroll identification numbers, sales tax identification numbers, etc. then it's already included in the original fee of $995. I do not offer a shopping cart section anywhere on this website to offer you additional features, products or sign-ups. You are here to form your new business, which is a serious matter. Nobody wants to feel as if they are ordering a pizza and being charged for each additional topping seperately.

How we determine which business entity is right for you?

As a Certified Public Accountant for over 26 years, I have provided local business owners with business formation advice and have been assisting with the incorporation process for 23 years. I meet directly with each and every client to obtain an understanding of the tax and personal liability protection required for their new business. Only after I understand their business, will I offer my professional business formation recommendations.
