Take the guess work and risk out of managing your corporate records with the Corporate Shield™ system
The first line of defense between your business’s creditors and you is The Corporate Shield™. You formed a corporation or limited liability company to protect your assets from the business’s creditors’ claims. Incorporation isn’t a fix it and forget it solution. Annual meetings are necessary, but have you documented them each year? Have you issued the stock certificates? For most busy business owners, the answer to these questions is “no”. Paperwork is low priority in day-to-day operations. But, not maintaining your corporate formalities is one of the easiest, and unintentional ways to lose the protection of incorporating. Take the guess work and risk out of managing your corporate records with The Corporate Shield™.
The Corporate Shield™ Advantage
Initial review of your corporate status
Your coach and you will go through a quick questionnaire to see where you stand with your corporate compliance in each state you do business. Your coach will also contact each state in which you do business to determine whether your company is in good standing and what needs to be done to bring your business into compliance, if it’s not.
Reconstruction of missing records
Most business owners forget to update their corporate records in the hustle and bustle of everyday business. Some businesses are missing vital documents like their bylaws or organizational minutes. Whether your company is a year or thirty-years old, we’ll get your company’s or LLC’s records up-to-date.
Unlimited custom access to compliance documents
All corporate compliance documents, including minutes, resolutions, and amendments, will be produced based on the information you provide. All documents are tailored to your business.
Assistance with your state filings
Your Coach will advise you of upcoming state filing requirements and deadlines to help you keep the company in good standing and avoid late payment penalties.
Access to your corporate Coach
In addition to your monthly check-in call, your coach is available by phone or email for quick answers to your Corporate Shield, and documentation questions.
Professional Registered or Resident Agent Services
All corporations and LLCs must maintain a “resident agent” or “registered agent” in every state in which they do business. Important corporate documents such as annual reports, and legal papers are sent to your registered agent. Failure to have a registered agent can end your corporate existence or prevent you from getting important papers in a timely manner. We will ensure your business has a registered agent and coordinate the receipt of these vital documents from the agent.
12-month calendar of recommended documents
Your Corporate Coach will create a customized calendar based on your initial questionnaire to remind you about filing and other deadlines for your business. As your business grows, your Coach will ensure new deadlines are incorporated into this calendar.
