Own an entity in Delaware within 48 hours! Instantly incorporate with model or tailored articles, select your preferred registered address, and appoint your local agent to activate your company.
REQUIRED: INSTANT REGISTRATION
BEST VALUE! Our instant incorporation pack includes name check and application, template bylaws, document filing with the Secretary of State, free statement of the Incorporator, online access to your incorporation documents, and initial capital structure and share issuance. RECOMMENDED ADD-ON: For a flat rate of USD 600, we help you custom your Corporation meeting Minutes and Bylaws to your specific needs.
REQUIRED: DELAWARE STATE TAX
This fee goes directly to the Secretary of State and represents what Delaware charges to incorporate a new business.
ADD-ON: Tax ID (EIN)
The primary purpose of an EIN is to allow the IRS to identify your company just as your social security number identifies you personally. An Employer Identification Number is a 9 digit code assigned to your company by the IRS. Obtaining an EIN is required before you can open a business bank account or hire employees on behalf of your company and Otonomos can obtain your EIN from the IRS immediately after your business has been formed, saving you time and money.
ADD-ON: Banking resolution
This one-time fee includes the preparation of the Banking Resolution according to your company's information, which lists the Members and Officers that are authorized to open the bank account and to transact on the account. In addition, we make sure your Know-Your-Customer documents are in shape. The actual bank account opening process will require you to go into a branch of your choice with the documents we have prepared. Please note that our fee is capped provided we can obtain all necessary KYC documents from you.
ADD-ON: Crypto exchange account
Our Crypto Account opening service helps you with the preparation and submission of the application to open a crypto account on behalf of your new entity, which is largely subject to the same type of KYC documentation as the opening of a fiat bank account. Otonomos will complete the entire application on your behalf and follow through on possible additional KYC questions.
2. Annual Maintenance
Annual maintenance of your company is paid for each year in advance and includes a registered agent and address for your company, and its annual filing. Add-ons include corporate members, nominee services, and accounting services.
REQUIRED: REGISTERED AGENT AND LOCAL ADDRESS
A Delaware C-Corp has to appoint a registered agent with a physical address in the State of Delaware. For only USD 18/month (paid annually), our registered agent services include filing of your company's Annual Return and a FREE standard registered address for your business.
REQUIRED: FULLY-ENCRYPTED FILESHARING
For enhanced privacy and as a precaution against identity theft, we require our clients to use a snoop-free, end-to-end encrypted Tresorit™ folder to share sensitive documents and information with us.
ADD-ON: Nominee Director
As part of our Nominee Services, we can provide your company with a Nominee Director. Our Nominees act under a general power of attorney. RECOMMENDED ADD-ON: Add a special power of attorney to have your Nominee act on specific, ad hoc instructions such as bank or crypto transactions.
ADD-ON: Nominee member
Our Nominee services also include the appointment of a corporate Nominee Member to your Delaware C-Corp for the ultimate in privacy and asset protection. Whilst a Nominee Member would still require you to comply with KYC as the company's Ultimate Beneficial Owner e.g. for bank account opening purposes, it does offer extra privacy and can shield assets from preying eyes and/or creditors.
3. Pay-As-You Go Services
Benefit from ancillary services for your company such as a recognisable correspondence or registered address, OtoMail mailscan and access to our team of experts, all paid for on a pay-as-you go basis and cancellable anytime.

Overview Delaware C-Corp
If you are US-based and look for VC funding. Plus: fully Blockchain-ready.
Delaware is the industry standard for US-based tech companies, and most angels, crowdfunding platforms and Venture Capital funds will insist on you incorporating as a C-Corp before investing. In addition, thanks to recent developments, Delaware is increasingly "blockchain-ready" with smart contracts and transactions on the distributed ledger recognised as having full legal validity.
