LLC Formation Requirements
Forming a Delaware LLC is not a complicated process. But you do want to make sure that you employ the services of a competent formation company. At Delaware Business Incorporators, Inc. (DBI), we've been forming Delaware LLCs since they were allowed to be created.
Over 60% of all Delaware entities are LLCs. The LLC formation requirements are listed below.
While the LLC formation requirements are easy, anytime you are completing forms for a state agency, you want to make sure that they are completed correctly the first time.
Here's a quick checklist of the LLC formation requirements:
- We do NOT need any documents from you.
- Select a Delaware LLC name.
- Conduct a Delaware LLC name search. We are happy to help you check a corporate name for availability.
- LLC Formation Filing: We'll prepare the necessary forms and verified them for accuracy. We'll then submit the certificate of formation to the Delaware Secretary of State. It usually takes about 2-3 days for us to receive a filed and stamped copy back from the State.
- Federal Employer Identification Number: Next, we'll apply for a Federal Employer Identification Number (EIN) for you. You'll need this number to open a bank account or hire employees.
- Operating Agreement: We'll supply you with an Operating Agreement template. You'll need this document to setup the ownership of your LLC and any other special requirements you want to make a permanent record of your LLC.
- LLC Members: Delaware does not require that a member's name is on the certificate of formation. In practice, most of our clients do not include any names on the certificate and that is perfectly legal. However, you can have your name or other members' names listed if that is what you wish.
There you have it. You can get the world's best corporate entity -- a Delaware LLC -- setup online in a few hours. You'll get proof of your Delaware LLC in 2-3 days or faster if you pay for RUSH service.
