Firstbase vs Stripe Atlas – Detailed comparison

Although the first thing that most people pay attention to is the price, I wouldn’t recommend it to be the main weight in your decision making. After all, this is a one time payment, but the service you’ll be getting and the options you will have are more important. Although, in our case, all the advantages go in the way of Firstbase, but yeah, let’s discuss them.

Here’s what you need to look at:

  1. Pricing
  2. Offered states

Available company structures – C-Corp & LLC

Stripe Atlas only provides the LLC option to US citizens, otherwise you can only start a C-Corp, which is a bit harder to maintain and more complicated for individuals who want to run a business.

With Fisrtbase you can choose between LLC & C-Corps easily. So basically you can start an LLC in either Wyoming or Delaware OR start a C-Corp in Wyoming or Delaware. Yes, it is this advantageous.

Customer Support

I will only speak out of my own experience, when I was struggling to choose between Stripe Atlas & Firstbase, I checked their social media pages, their entire online presence, tone of voice and everything.

I wrote an email to both of them, but only got a reply from Firstbase, the same exact day, and the conversation went on and on. They were rather friendly & helpful.

After the purchase I have support in 4 languages and lifetime expert support. Guys, this is really undervalued, you won’t get anything close to this elsewhere. Not to my knowledge at least.
