Here is a quick overview on starting an LLC in New Hampshire

How to Form an LLC in New HampshireA New Hampshire 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.

A New Hampshire 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 New Hampshire is simple. Search your New Hampshire LLC name in the state database and select your Registered Agent.

File your Certificate of Formation with the New Hampshire Secretary of State and wait for your LLC to be approved.

You can file your LLC by mail or online. The state filing fee is $100 in both cases (plus $2 transaction fee for online filing). If you file by mail, your New Hampshire LLC will be approved in 1-3 weeks. If you file online, your New Hampshire LLC will be approved in 3-7 business days.

You can also file your New Hampshire LLC by walk-in, but this is usually only helpful to local residents or those willing to drive to Concord, NH 03301.

After your New Hampshire LLC is approved, complete your Operating Agreement and get your Federal Tax ID Number (aka EIN) from the IRS.
