How to Form an LLC in MissouriA Missouri 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 Missouri is simple. Search your desired Missouri LLC name and designate your Registered Agent.

File your LLC Articles of Organization and pay the state filing fee ($50 if filed online, $105 if filed by mail).

After your Missouri LLC is approved, complete your Operating Agreement and get your Federal Tax ID Number from the IRS.
