You’ll also get our business presence bundle for no additional upfront costs, which includes a domain name, open-source website, email address, and business phone. Basically, you’ll get everything you need to launch your business.

Were you looking to incorporate an out-of-state company in Tennessee? We also handle foreign corporation registration!

You’ve Got Options:

A Tennessee corporation is formed by filing articles of incorporation with the Tennessee Secretary of State, Corporations Division.

You can either save yourself some money by filing for your own corporation with the tools provided in your online account. We provide the Tennessee articles of incorporation forms in your online Tennessee registered agent account. Also included are filing tips and resources on how to file. You’ll have access to these tools immediately after you sign up for our registered agent service.


After you take a look at the do-it-yourself option in your client account; if you decide you don’t want to do the filing yourself, you can easily add our filing services for $100 plus the Tennessee state filing fees. It will only take you a couple minutes to add our filing service inside your client account.

Now what?

  • Sign up for our registered agent service in Tennessee.
  • Once you do that, you will see the forms you need to file and some tips on how to file right away. If you decide you don’t want to do it yourself, just click the add services tab inside your online account, and you can add our filing services in about 3 minutes. You’ll see status updates of our progress in real time inside your client account.
  • When we form your Tennessee corporation, we write up your Tennessee articles of incorporation. Once complete we file the docs with the state, make your initial incorporator resolutions, and include your Tennessee corporate bylaws. As soon as we’re finished, your docs are always stored inside your client account, emailed to you, and the hard copies are mailed.
  • Starting January 1, 2024, your corporation must file a federal Beneficial Ownership Information (BOI) report within 30 days of formation. Only companies formed in 2024 have a 90-day filing period. Companies formed in 2025 or later have the typical 30 days to submit. This report includes information about your company’s beneficial owners. Beneficial owners are those who have a 25% or greater interest in the business or have a power position like a CEO, president, or financial officer. In addition to general company information, you’ll also need copies of the photo IDs of all beneficial owners, as well the company applicants. A company applicant is the person who directed the formation of the business and the person who did the actual filing (if different). The online report filing is free, and your information is not available to the general public. All companies must file an update within 30 day if any report information changes. Sound like a lot of bureaucracy you don’t want to deal with? Our local experts can handle your BOI report filing immediately and securely for just $9. 
  • Many corporations operate under an assumed name because it allows for franchising and branding opportunities. If you’re interested in registering an assumed name (DBA), you can select our Trade Name Service inside your client portal after signing up for incorporation service. We will register your assumed name for a total cost of $125, plus state fees.
