Entity Management Automation & Key Services
A message to all you fed-up GCs, paralegals, legal ops professionals, et al. struggling to keep your cool in the face of traditional entity management: help is available.
You spend your week (long string of Mondays) running from one catastrophe to another. The last thing you need is a message from your entity management provider requesting information you have already sent them ten times.
If just thinking about that scenario elicits a visceral reaction, fear not. A solution has arrived.
It’s 2023: Where Is Your Entity Management Automation?
Is it really necessary – in the year 2023 – to send your entity management provider information they already have on file any time you need to make amendments, corrections, updates, etc., etc.?
Is repeated manual (and often redundant) form filling really the best there is when it comes to entity management? Even now? Even though cars can (almost) drive themselves and AI can hold (semi) intelligible conversations?
Step Back from the Ledge…
Maintaining compliance and managing entities and licenses the old fashioned, manual way feels passé in the era of automated payroll and customer service chatbots.
Today, encountering a mostly manual business service is almost as rare as stumbling upon a unicorn in the wild – but is, bafflingly, the norm when it comes to keeping businesses legally and financially compliant.
Why, though? Digging through old files to locate obscure EINs and out-of-state addresses, then emailing the information to a black hole or typing it into an online form for the millionth time isn’t just frustrating – it is an unequivocal (and unnecessary) waste of time.
Worse yet, the work that goes into maintaining entities isn’t even hard. Entity management tasks are the equivalent of gnats buzzing around your head, distracting you from the meat of your job (if those gnats could end up causing thousands of dollars in fines if ignored).
And, on days when every action item escalates into a full-fledged fire (honestly, is there any other type of day?), having to unearth a long-forgotten DBA to amend an entity is enough to push anyone over the edge.
So, we ask and answer. Isn’t there a better way to tackle legal compliance? Why yes, actually, there is.
Beware of Opportunists & Faux Automation
Until recently, there was only one way registered agents managed your entities. The traditional, manual process puts the onus on you to remain compliant and communication often devolves into an email vortex of fruitless back and forths.
Oh, and transparency into processes and timelines is rare, so there is really no way to know whether the work is actually getting done. What the fork? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Software vendors, upon hearing the primal screams of GCs on the brink, scrambled to snazz up manual processes by hiding them behind slick interfaces that claim to “automate” the work of entity management. (Spoiler alert: most of those “interfaces” are little more than souped up excel spreadsheets that rely on a manual backend. Tell everyone you know…)
Not Your Father’s Entity Management
Then Filejet entered the picture and delivered the solution beleaguered GCs were praying for: fully automated entity compliance, complete with all the bells and whistles. Our entity management software (sigh of relief) takes the weight of compliance off your shoulders.
At its most basic level, the Filejet platform can be used to create, amend and withdraw entities easily, and with total transparency. But, because your work doesn’t stop there, neither does our functionality.
In addition to bread-and-butter annual compliance services, Filejet offers a full suite of additional transactional services, including:
- Entity formation (domestic, foreign and international)
- Rush services
- Dissolutions / withdrawals
- Name reservations/search
- EIN formation
- S corp elections
- 25102(f) elections
- Certificates of good standing
- Document retrieval
- UCC filings and search
- DBA / fictitious business Name registration
- Corporate kits / seals / stock certifications
- Estate planning kits
- International services
- Consulting services
- Payroll tax registration
Like our core services, each of our transactional services are digitized. Your time is important to us, so we leverage the data you already provided us to complete tasks. We won’t ask for information more than once.
That means no more wasted time and no more stifling silent screams as you type the same EIN into a blank box for the hundredth time.
Save Your Head Banging for Metallica
In this moment, most vendors (we’re more than that anyway) would give themselves a self-congratulatory pat on the back for handing GCs such an easy win.
But we won’t do that.
Why? Because what we’ve done at Filejet is what everyone should just… do. It isn’t rocket science (or intellectual property law…).
WRAPPING IT UP
If the way you currently manage entities makes you want to bang your head against a wall, please refrain from doing so. You deserve better than the inefficient status quo.
Staying legally and financially compliant should be a no-brainer. And, with Filejet, it is. Ditch the dinosaurs (and dinosaurs 2.0) and join us in the land of entity compliance automation. You’ll be glad you did. Request a free compliance audit or a demo to get started.
