Forming a Corporation or Limited Liability Company: What You Need to Know

These days, forming a corporation or a limited liability company is as easy as locating the appropriate government website (typically the secretary of state of the relevant state) and following the online guide. An LLC usually merely requires supplying the necessary information to the state, including address, organizer, and registered agent, and then payment of the filing fee. For a corporation, typically an additional step of publication of notice of formation of the corporation is required.

Most people think that's all they need to do-they're good to go. However, formation of the entity is just the beginning.
