Non-expedited processing typically takes 4-6 weeks. With expedited processing, which is included in our Standard and Complete Incorporation Service packages, the average timeframe is reduced to 7-10 business days. A number of states also offer 24- or 48-hour filing service, which is a great option if you are in a hurry to form your LLC.
LLCs are subject to ongoing requirements in the state of incorporation, such as filing annual reports and paying the applicable annual report fees and/or franchise tax. We are committed to helping you stay on top of your compliance obligations. This is why we provide six months of free Registered Agent Service with every LLC order and access to BizComply, our online compliance tool designed to provide you with peace of mind.
BizComply alerts you to upcoming compliance events, includes a company dashboard providing you with an at-a-glance overview of key company data, and includes a comprehensive library of forms you can download and customize to meet state requirements. To learn more about the ongoing requirements for your intended state of incorporation, view our state guides.
There are many factors to consider, such as where your company intends to conduct business, the state fees, tax laws and business laws of the state, and whether you plan to qualify your company to conduct business in multiple states. Most small business owners tend to form their LLC in the state where their company conducts (or intends to conduct) the majority of its business.
Once your filing is complete, you’ll want to hold an initial organizational meeting. At this meeting you should establish your operating agreement and issue ownership units. You will find templates for executing these meetings on your Company Forms CD.
We include a free copy of our Company Forms CD with our Standard and Complete Incorporation Service packages. You will receive this at the same time you receive your state-approved incorporation documents from us. This helpful tool allows you to easily customize necessary forms (such as operating agreements, notices for member and manager meetings, minutes, resolutions, LLC company summary and an annual requirements checklist). For your convenience all of the forms can be saved, and printed so you can keep them with your corporate records.
