The State of Delaware has passed legislation ordering the increase of fees due to them for all services they perform like forming corporations and LLCs and providing Certificates of Good Standing as well as basically all of their other corporate services. The change to the Delaware Corporations Fee Schedule come into effect on Aug 1, 2009 so if you are thinking about forming a new company, now is the time to do it! Before you have to pay more for the same service on or after August 1, 2009.
The annual Delaware State taxes were increased as part of the same bill but took effect earlier this year increasing the annual amounts due, so, since those were already in place for this year you won't see an increase in your annual taxes for at least 2 years, but it's looking like the State Fees involved in starting your business will increase come August 1st, 2009. So form your company today to avoid the higher fees!
