ZenBusiness will form your LLC for free

ZenBusiness is one of the most popular overall annual report services (not to mention top incorporation websites) for several reasons. We offer affordable annual reports, and we also offer our Worry-Free Compliance feature that combines managed annual reports, two amendments per year, and ongoing compliance assistance for a total of $199/year. We even have business formation service packages that include this service.

An Overview of Annual Report Filing Services

If you would rather receive some assistance with your annual reports, you’re in luck. The same companies that offer reliable LLC formation services also typically provide annual report services. Some of these companies provide fully managed services in which they’ll track your due dates, provide you with reminders, and fill out and file the forms. Others simply offer to complete and submit the annual report form, leaving you to keep track of the deadline.

There are even a few companies that will provide a year of annual report filing service for free when you purchase incorporation service from them. As you’ll see, we have great offers for all of these options. In this guide, we’ll discuss what we have to offer for annual report service, and also take a look at several other important aspects of our company.

What packages does ZenBusiness offer for annual report service?

With us, you can access annual report services in a variety of ways. Let’s take a look at the various packages we provide to our customers for annual reports and figure out which one best suits your needs.

  1. $100 (+ state fees) per year: At this price point, we’ll prepare and file one annual report for your business. This doesn’t include tracking your due dates or sending you deadline reminders — this option includes only the preparation and filing of the annual report itself.
  2. $199 (+ state fees) per year: Our Worry-Free Compliance package includes fully managed annual report services, including due date tracking. You’ll also receive two annual amendments to your business formation documents and ongoing compliance assistance from our expert team.
  3. $199 (+ state fees): Do you still need to form your LLC or corporation? For just $199 (plus your state’s fee), we’ll handle your business formation process and provide one year of our Worry-Free Compliance annual report service package, along with an LLC operating agreement or corporate bylaws template and prioritized processing. You’ll also receive employer identification number (EIN) acquisition from the IRS. It’s an incredible array of services for less than $200.

Overall Pricing and Value

Our goal with annual report services (and many of our other products and services as well) is to provide the ideal solutions for each entrepreneur’s needs. That’s why we offer three different ways to access this service.

If all you need is the basics, our $100 (+ state fee)package is a great option. For this rate, we’ll prepare and file your annual report with your state government. Looking for some more advanced features? Our $199/year (+ state fee) Worry-Free Compliance plan includes fully managed annual reports (we’ll track your due dates along with filing your reports), ongoing compliance assistance, and up to two amendments per year.

Finally, our $199 Pro business formation package bundles the formation of your LLC or corporation with our Worry-Free Compliance feature to create an all-in-one entity formation and compliance management package. With any of these options, we aim to provide everything you need and nothing you don’t. Flexible services like these are a big part of why we’re such a popular LegalZoom alternative.

Track Record

We were formed in 2015 in Austin, Texas. Our mission is to provide affordable business services by embracing technology and artificial intelligence. To date, we’ve formed more than 500,000 business entities.

We have an ambitious goal of 1 million more business formations within the next few years. We’re incredibly proud of the ZenBusiness customer feedback reputation, as we have more than 13,000 reviews available online while maintaining very high rating scores. In an industry with more than a handful of questionable track records, we stand out as a shining example of how to provide business services the right way.

Customer Support

You can access our customer support team via phone, email, or our web-based live chat application. We pride ourselves in continuously improving the quality and responsiveness of our customer support, and we believe we compare favorably to the vast majority of competitors in this area.

You can contact ZenBusiness customer support from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. ET on weekdays or Sundays from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. ET. These extended hours of operation are uncommon amongst our competitors, as many of them offer more typical nine-to-five availability with no weekend hours.

Ease of Use

You don’t need any experience with business services to successfully purchase annual report services from us. While some competitors make you jump through a variety of hoops to place your order, that’s not the case with us.

Both our basic annual reports and Worry-Free Compliance packages have easy and intuitive order forms. If you want a combo pack with business formation service and Worry-Free Compliance, it only takes a few minutes to fill out our formation service order form, and the instructions are quite simple to follow. All you need to do is choose which package you’d like to purchase, enter some basic info about your business, and we’ll take care of the rest.

How does ZenBusiness work?

The order forms for both options are quite similar, and most states require similar information. Still, keep in mind that your process could vary slightly from the one outlined below.

  • Enter basic personal and business info: To begin, you’ll log into your ZenBusiness account and provide us with your name, email address, and phone number. Then, you’ll indicate which state you formed your business in, as well as its entity type and business name.
  • Fill in business details: This is the step that can vary based on your state and entity type. For most of you, it’ll include things like your registered agent information, the names of your company’s owners, and your business management structure.
  • Review info and finalize the order: The next screen will give you an opportunity to review everything you’ve filled in so far and correct any mistakes you might have made. Then, simply enter your credit card information and click the “PLACE YOUR ORDER” button.
