Steps for Forming an LLC

Those that are forming an LLC must do so according to the laws and regulations in their jurisdiction and each state may have differing rules and laws, in addition to the Federal laws which apply, such as tax laws.


LLC formation generally includes the choice of a name for the company and that name cannot be in use by another company. Once the name has been chosen, the owners of the company must file with their jurisdiction. Filing would likely include paperwork, as well as a filing fee.


After filing for forming an LLC, the company must obtain an operating license, likely from the state where the formation is taking place. If the LLC will be conducting business in other states, they may also be required to file in those states or to get a license from that state.


Once the LLC has been formed and obtained an operating license, the LLC must also choose a registered agent. In fact, some individuals may select the registered agent before the company is formed so that the registered agent can assist with that process. The registered agent will help to handle all future paperwork, as well as notification about changes in laws or rules that apply to each specific company.


Each jurisdiction has differing rules about LLC formation but each requires extensive paperwork. Most individuals use the services of a legal professional when they are forming an LLC in order to avoid the potential of completing any portion of the process incorrectly.
