Forming a Mississippi LLC
Mississippi LLCs are formed by filing a Certificate of Formation with the Mississippi Secretary of State. The process takes 10 business days.
Name Identifiers and Abbreviations
The name of the Mississippi limited liability company must end with one of the following words or abbreviations:
- Limited Liability Company
An 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 Mississippi 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 optional extra for non-US residents
- Sales tax registration
- Payroll registration & business licensing
