Forming an LLC in Oregon
Oregon LLCs are formed by filing Articles of Organization with the Oregon Secretary of State, usually in two business days.
Name Identifiers and Abbreviations
The name of the Oregon LLC must end with one of the following words or abbreviations:
- Limited Liability Company
An Operating Agreement will help to protect your company’s limited liability status and avoid your company from being run by the default rules created by the state. Although Oregon does not mandate all LLCs to have an Operating Agreement, it is 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 Identification Number – available as an optional extra for non-US residents.
- Sales tax registration
- Payroll registration and business licensing
