Starting an Arkansas LLC
An Arkansas Limited Liability Company (LLC) is a legal structure used to protect your personal assets (home, car, bank account) in the event your business is sued.
An LLC can be used to operate a business, or an LLC can be used to hold assets (such as real estate, vehicles, boats, or aircraft).
Forming an LLC in Arkansas can be done online or by mail.
File your Arkansas Articles of Organization online ($45) or by mail ($50). Approval time is 2-3 days if you file online and 1-2 weeks if you file by mail.
Note: Filing times may take longer due to the current global situation and government delays. Please see how long does it take to get an LLC in Arkansas.
After your Arkansas LLC is approved, complete your Arkansas LLC Operating Agreement and get an Arkansas EIN Number (aka Federal Tax ID Number) from the IRS. Next, check whether your LLC will need an Arkansas Business License or permit to operate.
