More often than not, when people want to form a Delaware corporation, they’re in a hurry. They want and need it to happen right now. Today. There may be a deal pending, an innovative business model waiting in the wings, or a real estate closing looming. No matter the reason, these entrepreneurs need a partner in the company formation business whose location, infrastructure, experience and links to the Division of Corporations in Delaware can get things done in a hurry. In that regard, Harvard Business Services, Inc. achieves a level of speed no one can match.
HBS’s first advantage might seem the most obvious: being located in Delaware. And yet, a surprisingly large number of companies that provide Delaware incorporation services are located out of state, which means that whatever level of express service they purport to offer is hobbled by the limitations of faxes and the use of third-party messenger services. (Plus, the fax and the involvement of a third party make it far more difficult to keep a business formation transaction private and secure.) And, Delaware has been HBS’s home for more than 25 years.
Even though the Harvard Business Service, Inc. headquarters office is only a stone’s throw from Delaware’s state capitol in Dover, its electronic links to the Division of Corporations are direct and high speed. As one of a select group of authorized agents for the Division of Corporations, HBS has direct, real-time access to Department of State records on the Division of Corporations’ mainframe system. The company is also authorized to have official state seals to use in the business formation process.
What does all that mean for someone in a hurry to form a corporation? Simply this: with Harvard Business Services, Inc. the process can be reduced to a matter of hours, not days. When an order comes into HBS, checking the availability of the business name chosen by the applicant takes place in a matter of minutes. From there it is only a matter of hours until the process is complete: forms filed, fees recorded, documents issued by the state and assembled by HBSall done accurately and completely, every time.
Every company is filed the same day. And, if a customer orders before 1 p.m. EST and chooses the HBS premium service, the entire corporate package arrives on the customer’s doorstep the next day. What’s more, Harvard Business Services, Inc. employs the highest standard backup and data security systems to protect the integrity and privacy of a company’s information.
Compare that speed and seamless security to business formation companies that must traffic their orders from out of state, faxing documents and using third parties to ferry documents to state offices.
How would a prospective customer know whether a company offering online filing services can meet his or her requirement for same-day filing and next-day package delivery? Ask. Is the company located and headquartered in Delaware? If so, for how long? Is the company an authorized agent of the Division of Corporations, and is there a direct electronic connection between its office and state offices? For someone who needs to form a corporation quickly, as in today, the answer to all those questions make all the difference when time is money or there’s a deal on the line.
