I just hired a new employee in a different state (benefit of being enabled for remote staff). I could spend the time trying to track down all the foreign company filing, worrying about a registered agent, and it would probably come out costing less. But for me, time is money. On things like this, I would rather just hit the easy button and pay someone else who will do it for me.
That’s why I use Bizfilings and have used them for years. In an ideal world it should be easier to do business and figure out state, local, and federal regulations, in the meanwhile, take a look at what Bizfilings can do to help you save time.
