Georgia LLC Registration and Formation

Georgia LLC Registration & Formation

LLC company formation in Georgia is governed by O.C.G.A. (Official Code of Georgia Annotated), 14-11-203 (2010). The procedure for registration and formation of LLC is as follows:

Step#1: Hire a registered agent

According to O.C.G.A. (Official Code of Georgia Annotated), 14-11-209 (2010), an LLC will be required to continuously maintain a registered agent in the state. If you are planning to form a Georgia business, a registered agent will be required irrespective of whether your business is a domestic or a foreign business entity. We would take this opportunity to share with you the fact that we are one of the top registered agents in the state and have been responsible for over 11,494 businesses set up in Georgia.

We are in compliance with all regulations in the State of Georgia.

Step#2: Name Registration

One of the important aspects of an LLC company formation in Georgia is naming your business entity. Once you have found an appropriate name, you will have to reserve it or register it with the Secretary of State pursuant to O.C.G.A. 14-2-402 (2010). How do you reserve business entity name? You can file the “Name Reservation Request” form online or by submitting it at the Secretary of State, Corporation Division office. Business names can be reserved for a period of 30 days.

Step#3: Articles of Organization and Certificate of Authority

If you are planning to form a Georgia business LLC then the most important step is to prepare and file the right registration or business formation documents. According to 2010 Georgia Code, O.C.G.A. (Official Code of Georgia Annotated) 14-11-203 and 204, you can register a domestic LLC by filing “Articles of Organization” with the Secretary of State. You can also form a foreign LLC by filing the Application for “Certificate of Authority”.

We can file the form on your behalf being your registered agent in the state and provide you with certified copies of the LLC registration.
