  1. Pay Delaware Registered Agent Fees and Delaware Franchise Tax

You can renew your registered agent service with the incorporation industry’s lowest fee of just $50/year! Choose to pre-pay for additional savings. If you pay for 3 years in advance, you will pay just $125 for three years (72 FULL months) of registered agent services with Delaware’s leading registered agent.

Conveniently pay your Delaware Franchise Taxes for one company or multiple companies. If you have multiple businesses formed by or represented by Harvard Business Services, the “pay in bulk” feature will be very beneficial to you!

  1. Form a New Delaware Company

Forming a new Delaware LLC or corporation is easy with MCD. After creating your account, we have all your contact information pre-loaded. All that is needed is running a Delaware Company Name Search and if approved, boom! Filing a new company has never been faster and more efficient. Process your payment on MCD and the forms will be sent to the Delaware Division of Corporations the same day for approval. You can also expedite your order for $150 to get your Articles of Incorporation back from the State of Delaware faster than their traditional processing time.

  1. Add Other Companies to Harvard’s Registered Agent Service

When you switch from another registered agent service to Harvard, we offer the first year of Delaware Registered Agent Service for FREE. All you pay is the $50 state filing fee for the change of registered agent. Switching to Harvard’s Registered Agent Service has never been more efficient. When you switch the company to Harvard Business Services on MCD, all we need is the Company Name, File Number, and Corporation Type.

  1. Apply for an Employer Identification Number (EIN)

The MCD portal makes it easy for you to apply for a new company EIN. A Federal Tax ID Number (EIN) is often necessary for LLC’s or corporations to lawfully conduct business activities, especially if you are operating a business in the United States. EIN’s are often required to obtain a loan, open a business bank account, or purchase or sell commercial real estate.

  1. Order a Certificate of Good Standing

Obtaining proof that your Delaware Company is in good standing with the State of Delaware maybe required if you are applying for a foreign qualification or trying to obtain a business bank loan. You can order your Delaware Certificate of Good Standing online and get it the same-business day via email if the order is placed by 1:00 p.m. EST. Any orders placed after 1:00 p.m. EST will be processed and delivered by email on the next business day.
