Company Formation Frequently Asked Questions

1. Why Should I Incorporate?

Incorporating is an important step to providing you and your business with more security. It can even help you save money. The benefits are compelling, so why put it off? Don’t wait: here are seven reasons you should incorporate today.

Protect personal assets.
The limited liability feature of corporations offers protection for your personal assets. Why worry about losing your home or family savings, in the event of a business reversal or lawsuit? As a busy entrepreneur, you have too many other things to think about.

Increase tax savings.
Take advantage of tax saving opportunities not available to sole proprietors and partnerships. You can decrease your corporation’s taxable income by offering benefits to your employees, such as pensions and profit sharing. Medical, life and disability insurance premiums are completely tax deductible.

Raise capital.
A corporation can raise money through the sale or issuance of stock, bonds or other securities.

Ensure continuity.
If an owner of a corporation dies, the “perpetual existence” feature of corporations allows stock ownership to be quickly transferred, thereby allowing your company to continue operating without interruption.

Simplify estate and family planning.
Shares of a corporation or LLC can be readily distributed to family members following your estate or business succession plan.

Enjoy corporate discounts.
The retail, hospitality and banking industries all value corporate accounts and offer attractive discounts to secure your business.

It’s easy.
Forming a corporation or LLC is easy, and it takes less than 30 minutes to place your order. Call us at 1-800-781-5797 or place your order online now.

3. What information do I need to get started?

We will need:

Your contact information

If you are forming a corporation, the number of shares of stock you want issued
The names and addresses of the initial directors or members

We will handle everything else!

We will check the company name for availability
We will file the certificate of incorporation or formation with the appropriate state
We will send you your filed document once the process is complete
We hope we’ve inspired you to take action!

4. Do I need to hire an attorney?

Most states don’t require an attorney’s services when you form a corporation or LLC. Actually in many cases attorneys will use 360 Magnetic Solutions Inc to process their own filings since we can often do it faster and less expensively. We do strongly recommend that you consult with an attorney if you have any legal questions, if your business is complex or if you plan on doing business internationally. 360 Magnetic Solutions Inc. does not provide any legal or tax advice.
We hope we’ve inspired you to take action! Here’s what you need to get started.

5. Which type of entity should I choose?

Deciding between a corporation and limited liability company (LLC) or choosing which type of corporation to form is a decision best made in consultation with trusted advisors, such as a lawyer or accountant. While we can’t advise you on such matters, we can explain the differences and point out the benefits of corporations and limited liability companies (LLCs).

6. Are there any requirements for choosing a company name?

In most states your corporation’s name must include an ending that will indicate that the company is a Corporation or LLC. Some common corporate endings are Inc., Ltd., Co. Company, Corporation, Incorporated or Limited,

Some common LLC endings are: LLC, Limited liability Company

When choosing a company name, have an alternative in mind, just in case your first preference is not available.

 

What is the difference between “par” and “no par” stock and how much stock do I need?
“Par value” stock has a stated value on its face and represents the minimum worth of the shares. “No par value” stock has no stated value. Many of our clients authorize the minimum amount of no par value stock in order to minimize incorporating fees and annual franchise tax. If you need to change either the number of shares or the par value at a later date, it is an easy process that we can help you with.
We hope we’ve inspired you to take action! Here’s what you need to get started.

7. How long will it take to receive official documents?

Corporations and LLCs formed in Texas are filed the same day you place an order with us. You can typically expect to receive a copy of the filed document within one to two business days.

The majority of the other states will take 3-7 business days for you to receive a copy of the filed document assuming expediting services are ordered. Non-expedited filings can take 10-15 business days in most instances.

8. What is a registered agent and why do I need one?

Most states require you to list a registered agent with a physical address in the state of formation. The responsibilities of a registered agent include forwarding any government notices and accepting any legal documents on the company’s behalf. Not responding to a service of process in a timely manner could result in a default judgment against the company.

Many clients choose 360 Magnetic Solutions Inc. to act as their registered agent so they will not miss any important annual report due dates. Not filing the annual report by the due date can result in penalties up to $400 and the company falling out of good standing with the state. It is also a good idea to use 360 Magnetic Solutions Inc. as your registered agent office to avoid listing your personal home address on formation documents. Corporate documents are public records. If you want to keep your company’s business separate from your personal address, we recommend a commercial registered agent like 360 Magnetic Solutions Inc.

9. I'm not a US citizen. Can I still set up a corporation or a LLC in the United States?

Trademark

A business without a logo is destined to be easily forgotten by consumers. A business with sloppy ads tends to be remembered for the sloppiness, not for their products. A business with a jumbled-up brand name simply cannot be understood by the potential customers.

Trademark Frequently Asked Question

1. What is a good trademark?

The best trademarks are words that are not descriptive of the goods or services that are offered. Made-up words (e.g., Google) or words that are taken out of their known context (e.g., Apple Computer) are the strongest type of trademarks. Words that are not descriptive but are suggestive of the good or service can generally be registered, but they are not quite as strong.

2. What is a “fanciful” or “arbitrary” trademark?

Fanciful marks are terms that have been created for the sole purpose of acting as a trademark; they have no meaning other than as a mark. In short, they are made-up words or nonsense words that become associated with goods or services — representing a valuable investment in branding.

Fanciful marks are considered to be the strongest type of mark and are the easiest to get if you seek trademark registration. Examples of fanciful marks are GOOGLE, EXXON, and EBAY.

An arbitrary mark is a term with a common meaning that has no relation to the goods or services being sold. Examples of arbitrary marks include APPLE (for computers), LOTUS (for software), and SUN (for computers).

How can I find out if someone else is using a trademark I am interested in registering?
Perform a “clearance search.” There are two types of clearance searches. The first is called a “preliminary knock-out search” and the second is called a “full search.” Each search serves a different purpose.

Preliminary Knock-Out Search: A preliminary knock-out search is a check of the Federal Trademark records. A positive result generally indicates that your trademark is a likely candidate for registration. If the trademark is already registered by someone else in your field of goods or services, you will need to “go back to the drawing board” and pick a new trademark.

Full Search: A full search on the other hand is intended to determine if use of your trademark might infringe the rights of others. A more thorough review of Federal Trademark records, a full search also includes a look at state trademark registrations, common law sources, and Internet sources. If your proposed trademark would infringe another person’s trademark rights, we advise against further use of the trademark. This is to avoid investing money in branding a trademark that may well trigger a later claim of infringement.

3. Can I protect my trademark by registering it before I start to use it?

Yes. You can declare your intent by filing an “Intent To Use” trademark application prior to actually using a trademark. If the trademark is allowed, you will be required to show use of the trademark before expiration of a six-month time period. If you are not ready to use the trademark in that period of time, you can submit a request for an extension of time to begin use. You can file up to five extension requests, each of which are six months long. This means that the timeframe within which you must begin using the trademark can be extended up to 30 months from the date of allowance.

4. What can I do if someone is using my trademark?

You can stop someone from using your trademark if you can show that you are the first user of the trademark and that their use of the trademark is likely to cause confusion among consumers.

Although a Federal Registration will provide you with a better mechanism to stop the infringer, even common law rights can give you a legal basis to stop them — as long as the infringer is within a market in which you regularly do business.

5. How long does it take to register a trademark?

The length of time for the examination process varies; but it is generally six months to one year, although it can take longer if complexities arise, such as a legal opposition. Mistakes in an application are irreparable; even if a trademark is eventually registered, errors in the initial application could later render a registration invalid and open for cancellation by a third party.

6. Can a domain name become a registered trademark?

An Internet domain name can be registered as a trademark but only when it is used to identify and distinguish goods or services. Simply having a URL is not enough to register a trademark.

7. If two people are using the same mark and neither is registered, who has more rights?

If two people are using the same trademark and neither is registered, each party would have common law rights that are limited to their geographical reach. However, if the geographical reach as well as the field of goods or services overlap one another, then the party who can establish an earlier date of use of the trademark would generally have “prior rights.”

8. Why do I need to register my trademark?

Federally registering your trademark is the best way to guarantee that your trademark rights cover the broadest possible geographic region. Plus, federal registration affords you remedies you would not otherwise have, including the recovery of attorney fees.

9. When can I use the ® mark on my trademark?

You can legally use the ® symbol once your trademark is registered; simply filing an application is not sufficient. 

If it is not registered, it is advisable to accompany uses of a mark with a ™ symbol, for the trademark of a product, or SM symbol, for a servicemark.

 

10. Can I trademark my company’s slogan?

A company slogan used to indicate the source of goods or services can be registered as a trademark, provided all use requirements are met. Slogans or phrases used on T-shirts or buttons that are not used to identify a source of goods or services are not eligible for trademark registration.

11. What is the difference between a trademark, a servicemark, and a “trade name”? Is a trade name eligible for registration?

A trademark is a name, design, slogan, device, or combination thereof that identifies and distinguishes a good. A servicemark is a name, design, slogan, device, or combination thereof that identifies and distinguishes a service. A trade name is the name of a business or company, which is eligible for trademark registration only if the name is used on goods supplied or in connection with services rendered.
