However, the similar name may be registered if the LLC affected consents in writing or by court decree.

  • Minimum number. LLCs must have one or more members/managers.

Some states require additional filings or steps at the time of incorporation, such as a county level filing, publishing notice of the LLC formation in a local newspaper or an initial report filing. Nebraska requires the following:

  • Publication requirement. Nebraska requires LLCs to publish notice of the incorporation for three consecutive weeks in a publication (i.e. newspaper) in the county of the principal business location. If the LLC does not have a principal business location in Nebraska, the notice may be published in the county of the registered agent’s location. Proof of publication must be filed with the Secretary of State.

Professional services businesses

Nebraska allows professionals, such as accountants, attorneys and physicians, to form a professional limited liability company (PLLC).
