The Operating Agreement helps to protect your company’s limited liability status and prevents your company from being run by the default rules created by the state. Although Kentucky 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 could be necessary to complete the proper set-up of your LLC:
- EIN (tax ID) – available as an option for non-US residents.
- Sales tax registration
- Payroll registration & business licensing
- If you are starting a new business in Kentucky or beginning a new taxable activity, you may need to register with the Department of Revenue by completing Form 10A100, Kentucky Tax Registration Application.
