Starting a Nebraska LLC

How to start an LLCA Nebraska 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 Nebraska is simple. Search your Nebraska LLC name in the state database and select your Nebraska Registered Agent.

File your Nebraska Certificate of Organization with the Nebraska Secretary of State and wait for your LLC to be approved.

You can file your LLC by mail or online. Filing your Nebraska LLC by mail costs $110 and approval takes 2-3 business days (plus mail time). Filing your Nebraska online costs $100 and approval takes 2-3 business days.

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 Nebraska.
