Forming an LLC in Arkansas
Arkansas LLCs are formed by filing Articles of Organization with the Arkansas Secretary of State. The filing process takes two to three business days.

- Limited Liability Company

The Operating Agreement helps protect your company’s limited liability status and prevents your company from being run by the default rules created by a state. Although Arkansas does not mandate all LLCs to have an Operating Agreement, it is highly recommended that you have one.
Depending on the nature of your business, some additional filings may be necessary to complete the proper set-up of your LLC:
- EIN – Tax Identification Number – This is available as an optional extra for non-US residents with all LLC incorporations arranged by Turner Little.
- Sales tax registration
- Payroll registration and business licensing
