On April 22, 2020, the Arizona Corporation Commission announced that it added 2 hour and “Same Day / Next Day Services.” These filing fees are $400, $200 and $100, respectively. Nevertheless I am still able to file LLC Articles of Organization and get them approved by the ACC on the same day for the $85 expedited filing fee.
The following is the text of the ACC’s notice about its new services and fees.
SAME DAY/NEXT DAY SERVICES
Same Day/Next Service will allow for 2-hour, same day or next day processing for a fee.
- Does not guarantee approval of a filing
- Only guarantees examination by stated time, not necessarily receipt of the document
***NOTE: Corporations Division will no longer accept “urgency requests”***
- Must be received by 3:00 p.m.
- Will be examined within 2 hours of the time the document was received
Same Day: $200
- Must be received by 10:00 a.m.
- Will be examined by 5:00 p.m. the same business day
Next Day: $100
- Must be received by 5:00 p.m.
- Will be examined by 5:00 p.m. the next business day
Fees are in addition to document filing fee.
- Although documents can be filed online on the weekends or the holidays, the same day/next day clock begins the next business day at 8:00 a.m. AZ time.
- Document limit may apply to restructuring filings (mergers, domestication, conversions and divisions), foreign entity filings and changes – we will evaluate this on a case by case basis.
- We will not accept mailed documents for same day/next day filing. This includes FedEX and other overnight services.

- One Cover Sheet cannot include both regular processing and expedited/same day-next day processing. One Cover Sheet CAN have multiple types of expedited/same day-next day types included
- For restructuring filings, as is the process normally, the same day/next day fee is per document.
- Same day/next day clock starts once the document is complete (all necessary items included) and paid for.
- If the document is rejected, when you resubmit, your document will be processed according to the initially selected same day/next day service UNLESS you pay for a faster service.
- A phone number will be required (in case the team needs to contact you).
