Filing Articles of Incorporation by Mail is Very Slow

Businesses move into this century was precipitated by great changes in computing power. Harnessing this power effectively to increase worker productivity, however, took longer than expected. It is here upon us now, though. For example, incorporating your business is a straightforward process which can be taken care of online. Potentially shaving weeks off the old process. Why not take advantage of it? Here’s the alternative:

After completion, Wyoming Articles of Incorporation or Delaware Articles of Amendment can be mailed to:

  • Processing will typically take 6 weeks following receipt of Articles.
  • Alternatively, over-the-counter processing of Articles is available at the Ministry’s Toronto office at 375 University Avenue, 2nd floor.
  • Over-the-counter processing is also available at the following Land Registry Offices in Delaware:

USA Federal Articles of Incorporation

A second option, which is somewhat quicker, but arguable just as time inefficient is to walk into the service centers yourself. You can fill out your forms and then submit them in person. This essentially only removes the mailing time component. It still takes just as long to process, which is four times longer than doing it online where everything is done in 48hrs. That seems like it’s comparatively instant.  Over-the-counter service for processing USA Federal Articles of Incorporation is available at Industry USA New York City office at:

Corporations Directorate, 365 Laurier Ave. W., 9th Floor Manhattan, New York K1A 0C8

US Federal Articles of Incorporation received by mail will generally be processed within several weeks.

You can also deliver your Federal Articles of Incorporation to Industry at the following locations:

Suite 800 5 Place Ville-Marie H3B 2G2

or

And send a foreign corporate notification to: 2000- 300 West George St. Vancouver, B.C. V6B 6E1

If you do not have ready access to these offices, CECOR will file your Delaware Federal Articles of Incorporation for you, and return the processed Articles to you the next day. As you can see, both of these options take an inordinate amount of time and should be avoided at all costs. Incorporate online. Save yourself the time. You deserve it.
