What documents are needed to form an LLC?

If you want to create a business entity in Georgia, then be prepared to file some paperwork. The state requires that you submit certain documents to make your business legal. If you are forming a limited liability corporation, you will have more documents to file than if you were operating a sole proprietorship, for example. Typical filings required include documents for your business name and taxation documents. For an LLC, though, you have two specific documents you need to file to form the LLC legally.

According to the Small Business Administration, you start the process of forming your LLC by filing your Articles of Organization. This document includes information on who is running your business. You will include the names of all the partners in the business. You will also provide the business name and address, along with appointing your registered agent. This is the person who can perform duties on your behalf and handle legal documents on behalf of the LLC.

You also have to file an operating agreement. This document will outline the rules and regulations you have in place for the operation of the business. It should explain the role and duties of each partner. The power that each partner holds in the business should also be included. It will set up the process for making decisions for the business, as well. It should also include information on how a partner may leave the business or how a partner may be added. This becomes a contract once all partners sign. This information is for education and is not legal advice.
