Forming an LLC in Connecticut
Connecticut LLCs are usually formed in around one week, although there are expedited options available at an extra charge, albeit that these only reduce processing time to one or two days.
Name Identifiers and Abbreviations
The name of a Connecticut limited liability company must end with one of the following words or abbreviations:
- Limited Liability Company
- Limited Liability Co.
- Ltd. Liability Company
- Ltd. Liability Co.
The Operating Agreement helps protect your company’s limited liability status and prevents your company from being run by the default rules created by the state. Although Connecticut does not mandate all LLCs to have an Operating Agreement, it is highly recommended that you have one drafted.
Depending on the nature of your business, some additional filings could 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.
- Sales tax registration
- Payroll registration and business licensing
- All Connecticut LLCs are required to obtain a Connecticut Tax Registration Number.
