How to Form an LLC in Arkansas

How to Form an LLC in ArkansasAn 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 is simple. Search your Arkansas LLC name in the state database and select your Registered Agent.

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.

After your Arkansas LLC is approved, complete your Operating Agreement and get a Federal Tax ID Number (also known as an EIN) from the IRS.

Then make sure to pay your Arkansas Annual Franchise Tax every year to keep your LLC in compliance.
