CorpNet’s ownership group has been in business since 1997, helping form more than 100,000 businesses in their 20+ years in the industry. Although there are a lot of companies offering LLC services, CorpNet has reasonable pricing and quality service.
✔ With hundreds of positive customer reviews across the web, the majority of CorpNet’s reviews are positive in nature.
✔ Much like our refund policy at ZenBusiness, every CorpNet LLC formation service package is covered by their 100% satisfaction guarantee. If you’re unhappy for any reason, they’ll refund all fees you paid to them with no questions asked.
✔ CorpNet strikes a nice balance between experience and a personal touch. Their ownership group is a husband-and-wife team with more than 100,000 business formations under their belts.
✔ If you want reliable, responsive customer support, CorpNet is a good choice. They’re available from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. ET every weekday, and they offer bilingual support for those who speak Spanish.
✖ CorpNet’s advertised prices are a bit higher than their competitors because they charge a separate shipping fee on top of the advertised price. Every CorpNet LLC service package has a mandatory $29 charge that you’ll need to add to their listed price points. With us at ZenBusiness, you can form an LLC for free (just pay your state’s required fee).
CorpNet has three different tiers of LLC service packages: Basic, Deluxe, and Complete. If you would like to take a look at the list of features available with each service level, check out the breakdown below.
➢ Prep and Filing of Articles of Organization: These are the documents that officially form your LLC with the state. CorpNet will draft these forms for you, then file them with your state of formation to create your new business.
➢ Name Availability Check: They will search through your state’s business database to ensure that there isn’t another business out there that’s already using your desired company name.
➢ Corporate Compliance Tool: CorpNet B.I.Z. is a reminder system for crucial deadlines for tax filings, annual reports, etc. It also allows you to store and print business documents.
➢ 60-Day Registered Agent Service Trial: More on this below.
Everything from the Basic package, plus…
➢ One Year Registered Agent Service: A registered agent is a person or business entity that receives important legal documents on behalf of your company, then forwards them to you. Registered agents are required in all 50 states, and CorpNet will provide a year’s worth of service. After your first year, you can purchase registered agent services from CorpNet for $149 per year, although there is no obligation to do so.
➢ Federal Tax ID Number (EIN): An employer identification number (EIN) is like a Social Security number for your business. It allows you to hire employees, open business bank accounts, pay taxes, etc. CorpNet will acquire this number from the IRS for you.
➢ 24-Hour Document Prep: They will submit your fully prepped forms to your state within 24 hours of your purchase.
➢ Print Delivery: CorpNet will send you a hard copy of your formation documents.
Everything from the Deluxe package, plus…
➢ LLC Operating Agreement: This important document outlines the ownership structure of your business and also lays out some ground rules for how the LLC will operate. CorpNet will draft this custom document for you.
➢ LLC Kit and Seal: A decorative binder and seal with your company name printed on them.
Identify the LLC package and services that fit your needs and then get started.
CorpNet charges at least $128 (plus your state’s fee) to form an LLC — $99 for the LLC service fee plus an additional $29 for shipping. By contrast, ZenBusiness offers an LLC service package for free (+ state fee).
CorpNet was founded in 2006, although its founders have offered business services online since 1997. They’ve formed thousands of businesses and have 200+ employees. We found more than 700 reviews of CorpNet’s services on Trustpilot, and the majority of these reviews are positive.

The ordering process for CorpNet’s LLC formation service is relatively straightforward. You start by selecting your desired service package — they have three to pick from. After that, the next few screens gather some important details about you and your business, followed by a payment page at the end. It’s easier than forming an LLC on your own.
CorpNet has the experience to be a reliable provider of LLC formation services while still retaining the personal touch that made them popular to begin with.
Of course, they’re not the right fit for every entrepreneur, so let’s discuss a couple of scenarios where you may or may not want to use their services.
CorpNet is easy to trust thanks to its 100% satisfaction guarantee — it’s quite similar to the refund policy we have at ZenBusiness. Also, CorpNet receives solid customer reviews, although they can’t match the volume some competitors have (CorpNet has 700+ reviews, ZenBusiness has 12,000+)
You can save money with some of their competitors. For example, while CorpNet charges at least $128 to form your LLC, ZenBusiness has a free package — and you’ll have to pay your state’s fee either way.

They have a 10% off coupon on their website that is applicable to any business service except their Basic-level formation packages and state/government filings. Just enter the code CORP10 at checkout.
CorpNet is known for having solid customer support, as many of its clients discuss this very topic in their reviews. In our own experience as well, they are helpful and responsive. You can reach them from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on weekdays.
With their 100% satisfaction guarantee, you have 60 days from your purchase date to request a refund, and they’ll provide it with no questions asked. This is arguably the strongest refund policy in the entire industry, as it matches the excellent offer from us at ZenBusiness.
Sure, you always have this option. The issue with forming your own LLC is that there can be quite a bit of paperwork involved.
Throw in the fact that every state has different requirements for LLC formation, and the do-it-yourself route can be considerably more work than you might expect. On the other end of that spectrum, some entrepreneurs hire a lawyer to form their LLCs, but they typically charge much higher rates than an online LLC service.
The only reason entrepreneurs sometimes reserve business names in most states is that they’re not quite ready to form their LLC yet, but want to make sure they get the name they want.
There are some states (like Alabama) that require a name reservation as part of the LLC formation process, but for the most part, this step is unnecessary.
The United States does not require that you be physically present in the country to form an LLC. In fact, you don’t need to be a U.S. citizen or resident to own or operate an LLC ― it doesn’t even matter if you’ve ever been to the U.S. or not.
Along with us at ZenBusiness, CorpNet is one of the only LLC formation services that handle every possible step in your formation, including all state-specific requirements.
Whether you need publication service, name reservations, or any other state requirement, CorpNet will provide assistance. For more information, check out our guide to New York’s publication requirement.
CorpNet’s phone number for customer support is 888-449-2638. They have three different email addresses, depending on the nature of your inquiry:
CorpNet’s turnaround times are based on the requirements of each specific state, and they can vary from just a few days all the way up to several weeks. They also have expedited options available (for an extra cost, of course) that can speed up your formation time.
CorpNet has many other services that can help entrepreneurs form, maintain, and grow their businesses. They have an automated corporate compliance platform, along with initial and annual reports, registered agent service, dissolutions, foreign qualifications, amendments, conversions, reinstatements, S corporation tax elections, and more.
This category is more of a personal preference issue than a concrete yes or no. For us, we like the convenience that comes with having the same company acquire our EIN and form our LLC because then everything we need ― from our formation paperwork to our EIN confirmation ― is in one place.
That said, if you’re on a tight budget, you can get an EIN from the IRS yourself for free. If you’d rather save a few bucks and tackle the slight hassle of EIN acquisition yourself, we wouldn’t blame you.
Yes. CorpNet offers registered agent service for $149 per year. It also provides annual report services at a rate of $99 per year.
