LLC Filing Fee
The Colorado LLC filing fee is $1
$50 (see Colorado LLC costs for details).
This is a one-time filing fee.
Note: The “LLC filing fee” (the fee to create a Colorado LLC) is the same thing as the “Articles of Organization fee”. The Articles of Organization is the document, that once approved by the Secretary of State’s office, creates your Colorado LLC.
Accepted Forms of Payment
The one-time filing fee must be paid with a debit or credit card.
The state only accepts VISA, Mastercard, or American Express.
Expected Approval Time
Once you submit your CO Articles of Organization along with the filing fee, your LLC will be instantly approved.
Note: Filing times may take longer due to the current global situation and government delays. For the most up-to-date LLC processing times, check How long does it take to get an LLC in Colorado.
You will then be able to print and/or save a copy of your approved Articles of Organization from the Summary Page.
