Starting a Massachusetts LLC
A Massachusetts 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. If you file by mail, the fee is $500. If you file online, the fee is $520. In both cases, the approval time is 24 to 36 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 Massachusetts.
In order to keep your Massachusetts LLC in compliance, you must also file an LLC Annual Report each year. The fee is $500 if you file by mail, and $520 if you file online.
