How to Start Forming an LLC?

The LLC formation process is straightforward and similar in most states. To start a limited liability company (LLC) you need to:

  1. Pick a unique and free business name according to the naming requirements;
  2. File the formation paperwork, usually called the "Articles of Organization" with the local Secretary of State;
  3. Pay the formation fee and you are done. Well, almost.
This process might sound simple, but it still takes time and some states have additional regulations and requirements - this is where becomes handy. We have made a simple LLC company formation guide for each state.
