Forming an LLC in Oklahoma
Oklahoma LLCs are formed by filing Articles of Organization with the Oklahoma Secretary of State. The procedure normally takes three to five business days.
Name Identifiers and Abbreviations
The name of the Oklahoma limited liability company must end with one of the following words or abbreviations:
- Limited Liability Company
- Limited Company
- Limited Co.
- Limited Liability Co.
- Ltd. Liability Company
- Ltd. Liability Co.
- Ltd. Company
- Ltd. Co.
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. Whilst Oklahoma 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 may 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
