How to Start a Limited Liability Company in 2023

Limited Liability Company

Have you been thinking it’s time to start a limited liability company but aren’t sure exactly how to do so? Do you have a business in mind yet haven’t taken those first important steps? Here at Corporation Center, we’ve helped people all across America to start their businesses the right way in all fifty states. There are some factors to keep in mind as you begin your LLC.

First Steps to Take 

One of the earlier steps is to come up with a name for LLC. Make it different from other business entire names that are already registered in your state. You’ll want to pick a registered agent (A.K.A. statutory agent) as well, who can receive your legal documents and deliver them to you. If your LLC is in a state you aren’t physically located in, you can hire a registered agent. In a majority of states, however, you can act as your own registered agent. 

How We Can Help 

At our site, you can find the forms you’ll need to start an LLC. We provide access to these forms from all parts of the country. That way, you can start your business where you would like. Our forms have been carefully constructed and vetted by professionals, so they can serve as the kind of legal documentation that can help your business. Moreover, our forms are always available and easy to fill out. We’ve even added the option of “rush processing” if you want to make sure that your form goes to the very top of our queue. We see it as one more way that we can help new businesses. 

EIN, Bank Account, Business Licenses, Permits, and More 

Once those forms have been taken care of, you’re almost there. The next steps are to apply for an “employer identification number” (EIN) from the IRS. With that, you’ll be clear to start a bank account for your business. If you haven’t done it by this point in the process, it’s here that you’re going to want to acquire the licenses and/or permits that you’ll need to legally operate your business in your area. These could include licenses specific to your industry, a seller’s permit, a DBA (“Doing Business As”), and others. When in doubt, research and/or contact your local or state government offices as well as any trade associations in your industry to see exactly what it is you’ll need.
