How Much Is Registered Agent Solutions, Inc.?
RASi is an acronym for Registered Agent Solutions, Inc., and as its name suggests, the company specializes in serving as a Registered Agent. Many online LLC formation companies include this service as part of the LLC packages they offer; or they may offer the service for an added fee. RASi provides U.S. Registered Agent Service for $149. When researching the company for this RASi review, we could not determine the pricing for LLC formation, by simply browsing the website — however, the company will send you a quote if you send your information. We called, and were quoted a price of $118 + state filing fees to start an LLC online in Texas.
What You Get
According to their website, RASi prepares and files incorporation and formation documents for all entity types. However, they don’t publish a schedule of fees or services included with each package on their website. Many services are listed on their website — including Federal Tax Identification Number (FEIN) Registrations, Incorporations / Formations, Certificates of Good Standing and Annual Reports. When you click on any service, you’ll see a form inviting you to submit your information and request a quote. The line items included in the quote we received from RASi to start an LLC online in Texas, included an LLC Formation Filing Fee of $79, Form Prep Fee of $39, and optional Texas Expedite Fee of $25.00. An annual representation fee of $149 was quoted as a separate charge.
We could not determine a standard start-to-finish time frame for this RASi review. However, we were told that if you choose the “Expedite” option, your LLC documents will be filed within 24 hours.
If you use RASi for registered agent service, you will have access to a proprietary tool called Corpliance,™ which includes a Compliance Task Calendar™ to view and track upcoming filing requirements, Entity Manager, and Insta-SOP.™
The Trust Factor
RASi is accredited by the Better Business Bureau, and has an A+ rating. At the time of this RASi review, we found no RASi complaints or RASi reviews on the BBB website. The company’s Facebook page does have 520 likes, and four five-star RASi reviews.
You can reach RASI customer service by phone, email, or live chat. Because we had to contact the company to request a quote, we called, and were quickly provided with a quote (less than 30 minutes) by a friendly sales representative.
The Big Picture
In general, most customers prefer seeing fees listed online — but we understand that for some businesses (especially smaller companies that offer more personal service), providing quotes on a per-client basis makes more sense. Based on our brief but positive interaction with RASi’s staff, we had a favorable impression of their service. However, we also got the impression that they might be a better choice for registered agent service only, as that is their specialty. For full-service LLC formation, we recommend companies that specialize in helping individuals start an LLC online. Check out our IncFile review —our number one choice for LLC formation.
