Here is a quick overview on starting an LLC in New Hampshire
A 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).
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.
In order to keep your New Hampshire LLC in compliance, you need to file an LLC Annual Report each year. The fee is $100 and is due by April 1st every year.
