Avoiding Hidden Delaware Incorporation Fees

What You Should Know About Some Companies' Delaware Incorporation Fees

For over 40 years, we have seen hundreds of competitors come and go. As these competitors have gone in and out of business, we have reviewed their content and compiled a list of tactics many companies use to get your business.

Compare our package prices with the company formation fees of our competitors. As you compare, pay special attention to the different kinds of hidden Delaware incorporation fees we've listed below.

We mean what we say about pricing, service and turnaround times, and in a circumstance where time is money, competitors could cost you a fortune. At Harvard Business Services, Inc., we’re striving to make the cost to incorporate in Delaware a number that’s fair and easy to understand.

Incorporation Costs to Look For

Delaware incorporation fees comparison

Companies may sell their services as a package and offer what seems, at first, to be an attractively low price, but then they tack on Delaware incorporation fees they did not initially mention.

By not fully disclosing the true nature of their fees, the real cost of services can quickly add up and cost much more than you expected.


Other Ways Some Companies Hide or Disguise Incorporation Fees

  • Registered Agent Fees are not included in a so-called package price
  • Registered Agent Fees are promoted as three to six months of free Registered Agent services
  • Promoting a free first year of Registered Agent service when in fact it's only free until the end of the current calendar year, at which time you'll be billed for the next year of Registered Agent service
  • An increase in the Registered Agent Fee from the first year to the second (that no one mentioned)
  • Registered Agent Fees that increase in price the longer you retain your company

What Else They Neglect to Mention

  • They limit your access to their version of customer service, making it expensive or inconvenient to get the help or answers you need.
  • They sell or lease your name and address to mailing lists.
  • It may take them three to six weeks to process your order.
