Client Contact Information
Please advise who we should contact for the purpose of forming this LLC. The party listed here will be our client, and all correspondence will be directed to the person whose name is entered here.
What is the name of the LLC?
Let us know what name you wish to use for the LLC. Give us up to 3 names & we'll run a search for you at the Arizona Corp. Commission and Secretary of State to ensure no conflicts exist. If there is a conflict, we will check your 2nd & 3rd choices in that order.
Arizona LLC names must include: "Limited Liability Company", "Limited Company", "L.L.C.", "L.C.", "LLC", or "LC".
Professional LLCs need to include: "Professional Limited Liability Company", "P.L.L.C.", "P.L.C.", "PLLC", or "PLC".
The name must be distinguishable from all other names registered with the
Corporation Commission and Secretary of State.
What is the LLC's address?
A physical, street address is required. A mailbox or Post Office box may be provided in addition to the physical address.
If you do not have a physical street address in Arizona, then you can list the address
in care of the statutory agent and their street address.
Will you be your own Statutory Agent?
Most business owners prefer to be THEIR OWN AGENT for their LLC. First, they save money that way. Second, they want to be the party receiving legal notices - not a lawyer or person or company they haven't even met.
The Agent is the party who is designated to receive legal notices for the company.
Paralegal Plus will provide this service to you for $135.00 annually.
You only need to hire an agent if you don't have a street address in Arizona.
What is the LLC's business activity or function?
Please advise what nature of business the entity will conduct. This will help us determine if the company should be organized as a Professional Limited Liability Company.
Examples: Real Estate holding entity, Contractor, Retailer, Medical Practice.
Who are the LLC Members and Managers?
A party with ownership rights to profits, and who has legal rights to manage the Company should be designated as BOTH a Member and Manager here.
If they have the right to manage, control and vote, but have no legal rights to receive profits, then they should be designated as a MANAGER here.
Designate the party as a MEMBER here, if they have the right to receive profits, but not to manage or control the LLC (such as with a passive investor).
This option is highly recommended. In Arizona it's necessary to publish a Notice of Formation when a LLC is formed. Select this option to have us publish the Notice in the appropriate county and secure the Affidavit of Publication.
Alternatively, you will need to publish the Notice of Formation and obtain the Affidavit for the company's records.
A Notice of Formation will be included with your order together with a Memorandum and instructions regarding when, where, and how to publish. The newspaper will prepare and execute the Affidavit.
Most publishers will mail the Affidavit to you, which you in turn can mail to the Corporation Comission for filing.
The Corporation Commission charges $45 to issue an expedited Certificate of Good Standing. Expedited certificates are returned by the Commission with the approved Articles of Organization.
We'll have the Corporation Commission reserve your proposed LLC name so you know it cannot be taken before your filing is reviewed.
LLC names can be reserved for up to 120 days in Arizona.
Receive electronic mail delivery of the filed Articles of Organization, Operating Agreement, Affidavit of Publication and all status reports.
With all orders, we always send documents via postal mail. If you also want the documents e-mailed to you as they are processed, select this option.
This will provide the fastest documentation and status reporting possible.
This option is included in the RUSH option (if you order the RUSH option, do not order this PDF option).
If you "need it yesterday", we provide a Rush Filing Service.
Rush orders are filed the same day you order when placed before 1:00 p.m. - otherwise, the next business day.
A copy of the Articles bearing the Corporation Commission's approval endorsement are sent to you via electronic and postal mail in 4 to 7 business days.
Our LLC Records Book comes with a slip case and includes 6 tabbed indexes to keep your company forms organized.
Arizona requires a Statutory Agent to be designated for all LLCs and corporations. We can provide this service to you for $135.00 annually.
