Forming an LLC in New Jersey
New Jersey LLCs are formed by filing a Certificate of Formation with New Jersey Department of the Treasury, taking on average two weeks. We can arrange formation in one day, but the State requires an additional fee to achieve this.
Name Identifiers and Abbreviations
The name of the New Jersey limited liability company must end with one of the following words or abbreviations:
- Limited Liability Company
A formal Operating Agreement will help to protect your company’s limited liability status and prevent your company from being run by the default rules created by the state. Although New Jersey does not mandate that all LLCs have an Operating Agreement, it is strongly recommended that one is put in place.
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
- If you are starting a new business in New Jersey, you must register for tax purposes by completing Form NJ-REG. We will do this for you.
