Forming a Missouri LLC
Missouri limited liability companies are formed by filing Articles of Organization with the Missouri Secretary of State. The filing process takes five to nine business days.
Name Identifiers and Abbreviations
The name of the Missouri 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. Unlike most other states, Missouri mandates all LLCs to have an Operating Agreement.
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)
- Sales tax registration
- Payroll registration & business licensing
