IncFile’s refund policy is very strict, as they only grant refunds if they’re requested before they send your money to the state, which they say is typically within 24 hours of placing your order, and even then there’s a $30 cancellation fee. After they submit payment to the state, they grant no refunds.
Meanwhile, the ZenBusiness refund policy is one of the best in the industry. While many competitors have vague refund policies or even refuse refunds outright, ZenBusiness offers a 60-day money-back guarantee.
