Arizona has specific requirements for forming a limited liability company (LLC). Whether you are starting a business or incorporating a business already in existence, understanding Arizona requirements will help speed you through the process.
The name of your LLC must contain one of the following: "Limited Liability Company," "Limited Company," "L.C.," "LC," "LLC" or "L.L.C." You can’t use the word “Association” in your LLC’s name and if you wish to use the words “Bank,” “Banc” and “Bancorp,” the company must be a bank and you must get approval of the name from the Department of Banking.
The following are Arizona’s requirements for the members/managers of LLCs:
In Arizona, you form an LLC by filing Articles of Organization with the state and paying the state-imposed filing fee. As part of the process, you must provide the name and address of a Registered Agent with a physical address (no post office boxes) in Arizona. Your Registered Agent must be available during normal business hours to accept important legal and tax documents for the business.
In addition to filing Articles of Organization, Arizona has a publication requirement. LLCs must publish notice of the formation within 60 days of formation in a publication (i.e. newspaper) in the known place of business for three consecutive publications.
Accountants, attorneys, and physicians, and other professionals are permitted to form professional limited liability companies (PLLCs) in Arizona.
