California Secretary of State Reduces Turnaround Times!

California Secretary of State logo

California Secretary of State turnaround times for corporate and LLC formation – which stretched to their longest ever early this year – now have been reduced significantly.

The reason: In April, the state Legislature passed a bill authorizing $1.6 million for overtime and temporary personnel to resolve a backlog of 122,000 business filings!

Turnaround time for hand-delivered filings now is approximately one week for LLC formation and two weeks for corporate formation. These are comparable to typical turnaround times when I started my practice nine years ago. (Times for filings delivered by mail are approximately one week longer.)

Update as of November 20, 2013: Turnaround time for hand-delivered filings now is two days for LLC formation and five days for corporate formation.
