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

File your LLC Certificate of Organization ($120) and wait 2-3 days for approval if you file online, or 1-4 weeks if you file by mail.

After your Connecticut 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 file your Annual Report every year to keep your LLC in good standing with the Connecticut Secretary of State.

We’ve created a free course that will walk you through forming your own Connecticut LLC, step-by-step.

      Hi Deb, if the filing went through and you got an email confirmation, then the LLC went into existence. I would not file again.

    Hello Matt,
    Thanks for the great job explaining the LLC instructions and formation.
    My question is are you do the same with Non Profit Organization, or if you know any link you can direct or send to me please.
    Best Regards,
    Gilbert

      Thanks Gilbert! We don’t have instructions/informations on Non-Profit Corporations, but reach out to Harbor Compliance. They should be able to help.

    i’m looking at getting into LLC’s for rental property. i would like to use the street address as the name of the LLC, but i can’t form the name before i purchase property which i don’t know if i would even be able to without forming a LLC first and applying for loans through the LLC. any thoughts?

      Hi John, if the contract is assignable, you, as buyer, can be “John Doe and/or assigns”. Once you find the property and have an agreement of sale in place, you’d form the LLC (since you have the address now). Then you’d assign the contract to your LLC. Ask the lender if they can work with something like that. Title company, too. Hope that helps.
