Small Business Start-Ups: Lower Costs in a Down Economy

MyCorporation, a division of Intuit, the makers of Quicken & TurboTax is offering Free incorporation or LLC filings for a day on November 11, 2008. With this economy, MyCorporation is giving back to the small business community. This is a great chance to formalize a new business, to save money and protect personal assets. Their offering is a great alternative to a lawyer (faster and far less expensive).

Woodland Hills, CA, October 29, 2008 --( In these tough economic times, there’s no job security. So, many are starting their own businesses. In good economic times and bad, investing in entrepreneurship is always a wise choice as small businesses are the foundation of our economy. Small businesses create jobs and drive commerce growth in local communities. MyCorporation, an Intuit Company, continues to support small business growth by helping people easily form and manage a new Corporation or Limited Liability Company.

MyCorporation was founded more than 10 years ago by two lawyers with a dream. They wanted to make it easier for small businesses to protect their personal assets (like a home, or personal bank accounts) from business debts and liabilities. By offering incorporation services online (and eliminating the need for an expensive lawyer to process the paperwork), MyCorporation makes it easier and less expensive for small businesses to get started. Put another way, entrepreneurs can be encouraged to start their own businesses with fewer upfront costs.

That same entrepreneurial spirit is what drives the success of MyCorporation today. Deborah Sweeney, General Manager of MyCorporation explains “We started as a small business a decade ago. We have been able to help more than 125,000 small businesses in all 50 states get started and maintain their corporate entities easily and inexpensively. And we’ve been successful throughout the ups and downs of the economy, so I would like to say ‘Thanks’ and give back to the small business community. MyCorporation wants to inspire entrepreneurs to continue to pursue their dreams. That is what drives our economy, and it will be what helps turn it around.”

On Tuesday, November 11, 2008 from 6am to 6pm (pacific time), MyCorporation is offering Free For A Day. For one day only, MyCorporation will process a new Corporation or Limited Liability Company for Free. That’s a savings of $149 off regular service fees (note: document shipping, state fees, publication fees, and additional product fees are additional). To take advantage of this opportunity, just call 1-888-MYCORP-1 (that’s 1-888-692-6771) or visit the website and mention code FREE149 to receive the $149 discount.
