How to Form an LLC in Connecticut

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.

      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,
