Each state, including Alaska, has specific requirements that must be followed when you form an LLC. Knowing the requirements in advance can make organizing an LLC easier.
Every LLC in Alaska must have a name that contains "Limited Liability Company," "LLC" or "L.L.C." What’s more, your name cannot contain words related to a city and it can’t state or imply a purposes that is different from ones permitted by the Articles of Organization. And, your LLC’s name cannot be the same as (or deceptively similar) to that of any other company formed or registered to transact business in Alaska.
Alaska imposes the following requirements regarding the members/managers of LLCs:
Alaska’s Articles of Organization -- Requirements
You form an LLC in Alaska by filing Articles of Organization with the state and paying the state-imposed filing fee. As part of the filing, you must appoint a Registered Agent, listing the name and address on the Articles of Incorporation. Your Registered Agent must have a physical address (not a post office box) in Alaska and your agent must be available during normal business hours to accept important legal and tax documents for the business.
In addition to filing the Articles of Organization, Alaska requires that LLCs file an initial report with the state within six months of incorporating.
Alaska does provide for Professional Limited Liability Companies (PLLCs). However, professionals, such as accountants, attorneys and physicians, are permitted to form a regular LLC.
