Here is a quick overview on starting an LLC in Kentucky
A Kentucky 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).
You can file your LLC by mail or you can file it online. In both cases, the state filing fee is $40. If you file by mail, the approval time is 2-3 business days. If you file online, the approval time is 24 hours.
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 Kentucky.
In order to keep your Kentucky LLC in compliance, you also need to file an LLC Annual Report every year. The fee is $15 and can be filed by mail or filed online.
