Forming an LLC in Wisconsin
Wisconsin LLCs are formed in five business days. However, the state does offer an expedited service at additional cost, reducing this to one business day.
Name Identifiers and Abbreviations
The name of a Wisconsin 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 Wisconsin 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 ID) – available as an optional extra for non-US residents.
- Sales tax registration
- Payroll registration & business licensing
