Whether you are starting your business or organizing a business already in existence, you'll want to understand Indiana’s requirements for LLC formation.
The Indiana Secretary of State’s office will accept applications for reinstatement for businesses that have been administratively dissolved or revoked for more than five years for a brief period of time. If your business or your client’s business has been administratively dissolved or revoked for more than five years, contact CT today to apply for reinstatement to the Secretary of State’s office no later than July 31, 2018.
The name you select for your LLC must end with "Limited Liability Company," "LLC" or "L.L.C." Plus, your name must be distinguishable from the names of other businesses of the same type on the records of the Secretary of State's office.
The following are Indiana’s requirements for the members/managers of LLCs:
An Indiana LLC is formed by filing the Articles of Organization and paying the state-mandated filing fee.
Your LLC must appoint a Registered Agent. The Registered Agent’s name and address must be listed on the Articles of Organization. The address must be a physical address in Indiana; a Post Office Box won’t do. Your agent must be available during normal business hours to accept Service of Process and other important legal and tax documents for the business.
Indiana allows professionals, such as accountants, attorneys, and physicians, to form an LLC. Indiana’s statutes do not provide for a professional limited liability company (PLLC).
