Whether you are starting your Indiana business or organizing an Indiana business already in existence, if you are considering forming an LLC you'll want to understand Indiana’s requirements for LLC formation.
The name you select for your LLC must include the words "Limited Liability Company," or an abbreviation thereof. Plus, your LLC’s name must be distinguishable on the records of the Secretary of State's office from the names of other domestic or foreign filing entities, reserved or assumed names.
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.
An LLC must designate and maintain a Registered Agent in the state. If the LLC appoints a Commercial Registered Agent (CRA) the name of the CRA must be set forth in the Articles of Organization. If the Registered Agent is not a CRA the name of the noncommercial Registered Agent and its address (number and street) must be set forth. A post office box is not acceptable unless accompanied by a rural route number.
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).
