How Do I Prepare My Articles of Organization for my LLC?

The principal documentation during the LLC formation process is your Articles of Organization. This is a filing you or your agent makes with your state’s Secretary of State to form a new Limited Liability Company. These articles outline the most important details of your new company.

What is an LLC?

A Limited Liability Company is a popular entity type for business. It combines the tax advantages of partnerships with the liability limitation of corporations. Members, the owners of the LLC, are not personally liable for the entity’s debts. Combined with the relative ease of formation, these benefits make LLCs popular among small business owners.

Articles of Organization and the LLC Formation Process

When you want to create a new LLC, you need to submit Articles of Organization to your state. The requirements for this documentation vary by state. However, you can expect to include the requested name, owners, mailing address and a description of the company’s business. You may also need to elect whether the LLC will be member managed or manager managed.

Prior to filing, check with your Secretary of State’s office to determine the exact requirements for your state. It is also a good idea to check for any naming requirements such as restricted words.
