How to Form and Register a LLC in Texas?

A limited liability company (LLC) is basically a kind of business which allows its owner to limit their personal liability into the finances of the company. If somebody sues the company then, the LLC owners would not lose all their personal assets because they are just financially responsible for their investment in the company. Forming an LLC also offers a little flexibility in what way the company runs. When we speak of how to form a LLC in Texas, it is quite easy and inexpensive as the Federal and state law delivers numerous tax benefits to LLCs. But to avail all of these benefits first business owners require understanding the right way to form an LLC in Texas. So, why wait? Let’s get started!

Excavating the Primary Steps to Register and Set Up a LLC in Texas:

•Pick a Name for the LLC: As per the Texas law, an LLC name should comprise the words "Limited Company" or "Limited Liability Company," or comprise the abbreviations like "Company" as "Co.," "LC," "L.C.," "Limited," "L.L.C.," "LLC," "Ltd." and "LTD". Your LLC’s name has to be clear from other business entities’ names which are already filed with the Texas Secretary of State. Individuals planning to set up a LLC in Texas must check the LLC name availability at the Texas Secretary of State SOSDirect website and can reserve a name for about 120 days through filing an Application for Reservation or Renewal of Reservation of an Entity Name (Form 501) among the Texas Secretary of State. The reservation can be filed online via the Texas Secretary of State SOSDirect website or by postal mail by paying a minor Texas LLC filing fee of $40.

•Abide by the Other Tax and Regulatory Needs: The additional tax and regulatory needs might apply to your LLC in Texas. These might comprise:-

1. Employer Identification Number (EIN): If an LLC has more than one member then, it should acquire its own IRS Employer Identification Number (EIN), irrespective of the fact that they have no employees. If you set up a one-member LLC in Texas then, you must obtain your EIN for it only if it will have employees or you choose having it taxed as a corporation rather than a sole proprietorship. LLC owners can get an EIN through completing the online EIN application on the IRS website and there is no filing fee for it. 2. Business Licenses: Considering the type of business you run and its location, your LLC might require getting other local and state business licenses. To fetch more information, visit the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation. 3. Comptroller of Public Accounts: If your LLC sells goods and collects sales tax then, you would require registering with the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts. Considering the tax involved, you can register online through postal mail or in person at the Comptroller field office. This presentation is brought to you by Rapidregisteredagent.com

The details required to be filled for computing the tax could be complex so, visit the Comptroller of Public Accounts website to get more info about it.
