Starting a New York LLC
A New York 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 New York is simple. Search your New York LLC name in the state database, file your New York LLC Articles of Organization and pay the state filing fee ($200), then publish 2 ads to meet the New York Publication Requirement (Part 1 and Part 2).
After your New York LLC is approved, file your Certificate of Publication ($50), complete your LLC Operating Agreement, obtain a New York EIN Number. Then, start filing your Biennial Statements and pay your LLC Taxes.
