Forming a Maryland LLC
Maryland LLCs are formed by filing Articles of Organization with Maryland State Department of Assessments and Taxation. The process takes one week.
Name Identifiers and Abbreviations
The name of the Maryland limited liability company must end with one of the following words or abbreviations:
- Limited Liability Company
An 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 Maryland 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
