To apply for an LLC in Massachusetts, you have to go through two main processes, both of which have key moments you need to pay attention to. Here’s what you need to keep in mind.
Apply For an LLC in Massachusetts
A lot of forms and paperwork will come into play when you apply for an LLC in Massachusetts. Lucky for you, you will find everything you need in order to file for your certificate of organization as an LLC here at the Corporation Center. There are a few key steps in this process that you need to pay attention to, so let’s go over some of these for your convenience. This way, the application process will be made all the easier for you and your team as you work to establish your limited liability company here in Massachusetts. You will have your organization up and running in no time.
Naming Your LLC
The first thing you should do when determining a name for your LLC will be to double-check any business name availability through the Massachusetts Secretary of the Commonwealth’s website. You will find multiple search options, including the database of corporations and an internal search box for reserved business names. If you’re still working through your paperwork and don’t want to risk missing out on your chosen name, you can hold a name for sixty days by submitting an Application of Reservation of Name form, for which the fee is $30. It’s important to remember that your business name must include “limited liability company” or “limited company” or their corresponding abbreviations, such as “LLC,” “L.L.C.,” L.C.” or “LC.”

Once you have picked out the name, the next step when you apply for an LLC in Massachusetts will be to file a request for your certificate of organization.
