For the state of North Carolina, we offer two (2) different LLC Operating Agreements (Single and Multi-Member) which have been designed to prove ownership of a company, put all the different members of an entity into a legal contract, and remove the owner(s) from any liability associated with the entity. However, the LLC Operating Agreements also: document the daily routine of a company, allow for the creation of bylaws within a company, and record the roles of the manger(s) and employees of an entity. Before an LLC Operating Agreement can be completed, the owner must actually create the company. To do this, the owner must file an Articles of Organization application with the North Carolina Secretary of State, in which we show you step-by-step below.

How to File:

Step 1:

Check to see if the name you plan on using for your entity has already been taken by scanning the North Carolina Secretary of State Business Search Page. If someone else has not chosen your entity name, continue on to Step 2.

Step 2:

Complete one of the two (2) Articles of Organization Application below:

Domestic (Form L-01 – For companies that are being created in the state of North Carolina.

Foreign (Form L-09) – For companies that will be introducing their previously created businesses into the state of North Carolina.

Step 3:

Attach the required fee to the application. It costs $125 to file Domestic Applications, and $250 for Foreign Applications. Checks are payable to the North Carolina Secretary of State’s Office.

Step 4:

Send both the completed Articles of Organization and attached fee of either $125 or $250 to the below address:

Corporations Division
P.O. Box 29622
Raleigh, NC 27626-0622

TIPS:

– Once your entity has been created, utilize one of our two (2) LLC Operating Agreements to ensure your newly created entity is organized and you (the entity owner) is protected from damaging liability associated with the company.

– Apply for an EIN (Employer Identification Number) digitally at the IRS’ website or by hand with a paper version; the EIN Number allows you to create a bank account in your company’s name.
