Services Provided

FastFilings.com is a business document preparation and filing service for certain business documents or filings. We uses the information you provide to prepare and/or file documents on your behalf. 

    Seller permit/wholesale license/business registration filing services:

Please note that each state uses different terminology for this registration. For example, in California this is called a “seller’s permit”, in Texas it is called a “sales and use tax permit” and in New York it is called a “certificate of authority”. Some common other terms for this item are: wholesale license, resale license, sales and use tax registration, sales license, seller’s license, resellers permit, certificate of authority, seller’s permit (and the list could go on). We will refer to this item in this section as “license/permit” and as “seller permit/wholesale license/business registration/sales license/wholesale permit”. 

Our service is the act of filing the seller permit/wholesale license/business registration/sales license/wholesale permit registration request with the appropriate state dept. of revenue/tax/finance. Although non-delivery of a permit is extremely rare, we cannot guarantee delivery. Our service fee is simply the fee for us to file for the seller permit/wholesale license/business registration/sales license/wholesale permit request for the client.

Often times, Fast Filings may need to ask for additional information or clarification from a customer to complete a filing. Some examples include (but are not limited to) clarification/confirmation of an entity name, an EIN or SSN,  a state TID or letter ID number, or any other info that may need to be clarified/confirmed to completed a filing. In these cases, we will send an email to the client asking for the clarification/confirmation of whatever the particular info may be. It is the customer’s responsibility to reply with the requested information. If a customer fails to or is unwilling to reply with the requested info, this does not entitle a refund.

It’s important to note that the most common reasons for a seller permit/wholesale license/business registration/sales license/wholesale permit to not be issued are: a) one already exists or has been filed for the entity or b) the entity or person has outstanding tax liability. Again, in the event that the state cannot issue the seller permit/wholesale license/business registration/sales license/wholesale permit, this DOES NOT entitle a refund because our service is strictly the service of filing the request, but cannot guarantee issuance of the actual permit or delivery. Although, this situation is fairly rare.

This service is non-refundable. Please read the below paragraph CAREFULLY.

Our seller permit/wholesale license/business registration/sales license/wholesale permit registration service is NON REFUNDABLE, and there are NO EXCEPTIONS. This means that if the state office cannot issue the permit, this does not entitle a refund. If there is a duplicate seller permit/wholesale license/business registration/sales license/wholesale permit in the state system, causing a rejection in the filing, this does not entitle a refund. If the state office requests additional info from the client such as an account number, photo ID, etc. , and the client is unwilling or unable to provide this additional information, this does not entitle a refund. If the client has an existing unpaid tax liability, and the state has put the filing on hold, this does not entitle a refund. If the state cannot issue the permit/license, or has put the request on hold for ANY REASON, this does not entitle a refund. Again, our service is STRICTLY the service of filing the request, and it DOES NOT guarantee issuance or delivery.

However, please note that non-issuance of a permit/license is fairly rare, and almost always only happens if 1) there is already an existing permit/license, or 2) the applicant has an outstanding unpaid tax liability.  If there is an issue with issuance of the permit/license, we can almost always help the customer troubleshoot the issue. In most cases, the client can contact the state to close the existing permit, pay the outstanding tax liability, or resolve whatever the issue is, which usually then allows the permit/license to be issued.

    CA business tax registration filing services (often referred to as a city business license):

Our city business registration service is the service of filing a city business tax registration for a client. Please be aware that each city uses different terminology for this type of registration. For example, Los Angeles calls it a “business tax registration” and San Francisco calls it a “business license”. The service is simply to file the request on behalf of the client – we CANNOT guarantee that the city office will issue the registration certificate. Non issuance is rare, but we still cannot guarantee issuance since there are many reasons that a city office may not issue a tax registration certificate.

     DBA Assistance Services:

 Our DBA / FBN assistance service has a few parts:

1) Perform your name availability research through the county to confirm the DBA name is available.
2) Perform your pre-filing through the county (where applicable, such as LA County)
3) Fully prepare your filing documents and tailored next steps instructions for completing the DBA registration.
4) Prepare prepaid mailing materials for you to submit the required items.

5) Deliver these to you by mail.

In placing an order with us, you have to check a box agreeing to understanding that DBA services are non-refundable, and that you understand the service description. DBA service packages mail out via regular US mail. We do this to keep or prices low. Keep in mind we DO NOT guarantee that filings will be accepted (ie they can be rejected), or that the county will not request additional items. There are many, many, reasons beyond our control such that a county office will request additional items or changes to approve the DBA filing. While this is rare, it does happen.

     CA Statement of Information / NY Biennial Statement Filing Service:

Our Statement of Information or Biennial Statement  filing service is one where we will file a Statement of Information or Biennial Statement for the customer with the Secretary of State. This filing will be viewable in the Secretary of State online system usually a few days after we file.

Often times we are required to request additional information from the customer, such as a state entity ID number, or an exact spelling of the entity name. In the case where a customer does not reply to our email requesting this info, or if the customer is unwilling to provide this info, this DOES NOT entitle a refund. It is the customer’s responsibility to reply to any of our requests for further information.

     Certificate of Status / Good Standing Filing Service

Our certificate of status / good standing filing service is one where we will file a request for a certificate of status / good standing for an LLC or corporation that the customer requests. For many states, we will receive the document digitally and forward it to the customer by email. For other states, the document will be mailed to the customer directly from the state once we perform the filing.

If the entity is eligible for a certificate, the state will likely mail or email the certificate in about 1-2 weeks. However, we cannot guarantee the entity is eligible for a certificate or that any certificate will be delivered. Our service is JUST to file the request.

Also, keep in mind that name of the document in most states is a “Certificate of Good Standing”, however, that does not necessarily mean the entity is in good standing. “Certificate of Good Standing” is just the name of the document, and if the entity is not in good standing, the document will show that the entity is not in good standing.

In the event that we need more information to complete the filing, we will send an email to the customer requesting this info. It is the customer’s responsibility to reply to the email with the requested info. Failure to reply DOES NOT entitle a refund. This service is non-refundable, and there are NO EXCEPTIONS.

Refund/Cancellation/Return Policy

Because we file and begin processing immediately, we cannot offer refunds on filings under any circumstances. All sales are final. If you do not agree with this policy, you agree to not place an order through this website.

Identification/Documentation/Additional Information Requirements

Often times we are required by the government office to collect a form of identification, or additional information or documentation from a client. The applicant is responsible for responding to all requests in a timely manner, and you understand that any delay in response or no response will cause a delay or suspension in processing. You agree that failure to respond to our document request emails does not entitle You to a refund. 

Some examples of items that may be requested are: photo ID, a copy of Articles of Incorporation, a copy of other business documents, and existing account number, a copy of an EIN, an existing account number for a seller’s permit, etc.

Filing and Processing Times

We begin processing orders immediately. However, processing times are an approximation and are not guaranteed. Our processing time is unrelated to government processing time.    

Disputes & Collections

Any charge disputed through a financial institution that is determined to be invalid (i.e. closes in our favor) will be assessed a $50 fee to cover damages caused by the dispute, as well as a $50 fee for collections. 

We have ZERO tolerance for consumer fraud (a consumer initiating an invalid dispute that the bank closes in our favor). We turn all invalid disputes over to formal collections in the amount listed above, and if left unpaid, we report the debt to all 3 credit bureas.
