As you can see, with each package MyCompanyWorks provides, there are additional benefits such as lifetime access to your account, same day business processing, and The Startup Wizard. The Startup Wizard is the organization feature that accompanies their services to ensure that you don’t miss any deadlines or state requirements.
In terms of turnaround time, MyCompanyWorks is basically on par with Incfile. Timelines vary greatly by state, so it is in your best interest to check the estimates for your state.
MyCompanyWorks has an extremely high approval rate from its customers, with over 1,000 positive reviews and no critical ones. Customers seem most pleased with the quality of customer service in terms of response time and availability.
Here are some examples of these positive reviews:
“Service and staff are really good, I need some documents on an urgent basis and they help me a lot to get all the required documents on time.
thanks to all team members” -Yawar G.
“Very easy and fast. That is why I am a repeat customer 3 times over....thanks!” -Christopher R.
Incfile’s reviews mostly reflect a positive experience. The most common complaint with this company is the time it takes to receive customer support. Being a much larger company than MyCompanyWorks, there is less access to support.
Here are some examples of those positive experiences:
“I normally get my corp filings from another company, but after purchasing a corp thru Incfile.com, and how fast I received everything, this is my new go-to for legal business filings. Highly recommend!" -Susan H.
“Quick and simple. Also, the dashboard they provide makes it easy to stay up to date and current on any the business issues having to do with the LLC." -Geoff V.
Which Should you Choose?
All things considered, the choice between these two companies lies with whether you as a business owner prioritize customer service accessibility or cost.
Incfile is significantly cheaper with great reviews! Despite the potentially slow response times from customer service, you are still getting a great deal for your money.
