Here is a quick overview on starting an LLC in Oklahoma

How to Form an LLC in OklahomaAn Oklahoma 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 Oklahoma 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 Oklahoma is simple. Search your Oklahoma LLC name in the state database and select your Registered Agent.

File your Articles of Organization with the Oklahoma 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. If you file by mail, your Oklahoma LLC will be approved in 7-10 business days. If you file online, your Oklahoma LLC will be approved in 1-2 business days.

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

In order to keep your Oklahoma LLC in compliance with the Secretary of State, you need to file an Annual Certificate each year. The state fee is $25.

We’ve created a free course that will walk you through forming your Oklahoma LLC, step-by-step.

    Hi, I currently reside in Texas and would like to form my LLC in Oklahoma how can I go about doing this? Is it much pain to form my LLC in Oklahoma vs Texas?

    • Matt Horwitz March 20, 2017

      Hi Shay, do you reside and do business in Texas, but want to form an LLC in Oklahoma to save money? If so, this will end up costing you more. If you form an LLC in OK, but are doing business in Texas, you’ll be required to register your OK LLC as a Foreign LLC in Texas ($750). You’ll essentially need to maintain 2 LLCs now, and you’ll be required to file Annual Reports in both states. You can find more info here: best state for an LLC.

    Thank you for the superb information provided on your website. On Friday, I read over your easy to understand instructions on how to form an LLC. Following your instructions, I did the LLC name search, completed the Operating Agreement, and chose Northwest as my Registered Agent. On Saturday I filed the Articles of Organization online with the Oklahoma Secretary of State. On Monday I received my Certificate of LLC and then filed for my EIN (tax number). Today is Tuesday and I’m going to the bank with LLC docs in hand to open up my LLC bank account. This is No Gimmick and the instructions provided could not have been easier to follow. I made a small donation in appreciation for the help given and Thank You!

    What is the best way of shutting down one corporation and starting up another basically just a name change

    • Matt Horwitz August 15, 2018

      Hi Gary, I don’t fully understand your question. Can you rephrase it? A Corporation is a different than an LLC (see LLC versus Corporation). I’m going to assume that you’re talking about an LLC and that you want to shut it down and and create a new one. In that case, you’d need to file an Articles of Dissolution with the Oklahoma Secretary of State. You’ll also want to file a final return with the IRS and Oklahoma Tax Commission. Then you’ll simply form a new LLC, get a new EIN, open bank account, etc. If you just want to change the name of an LLC, you’ll need to file an Amended Articles of Organization with the Oklahoma Secretary of State.

    Hi, When we want to file our Articles of Organization where we should determine the LLC members?
    There is no place to mention how many member is the company.

    • Matt Horwitz August 31, 2018

      Hi Reihaneh, the LLC Members are not listed in the Articles of Organization. Instead, they are listed in the Operating Agreement. Hope that helps.
