Last week, I formed a new limited liability company (LLC) for a client. The California Secretary of State turned the Form LLC-1 around in only two days rather than the standard one week! (24-hour turnaround is available for an additional fee of $350, which is hardly worth paying under these circumstances.)
Has the recession reduced the number of new businesses being formed? Datasearch, the filing service that I use in Sacramento, did not know.
Follow-up: Eighteen months later, turnaround times have deteriorated terribly – see Forming a Corporation in California? Get Ready to Wait.
