Setting up Louisiana LLCs

Business Law Attorney in Louisiana

A limited liability company (LLC) combines aspects of a traditional business partnership with a corporation, providing the company with both operational flexibility and a limit on the owners' liability.

In order to qualify as an LLC, the business can't feature more than two of a corporation's four core features:

  • Limited liability to the extent of its assets
  • Continuity of life
  • Centralized management
  • Free transferability of ownership interests

When setting up an LLC in Louisiana, you need to conduct a search to ensure that the name you are proposing hasn't already been taken. The name of your business must include "limited liability company," "LLC," or "LC." If the name is available, you then need to simultaneously file the "Articles of Organization" (states the purpose of the business and the duration of the LLC), the "Initial Report" (contains the contact information and lists everyone who signed the Articles of Organization), and the "Transmittal Information For All Business Filings." You can mail the documents along with the required fee, or you can submit them in person.

Filing an LLC can be the exciting start to your new business. However mistakes made during the filing can jeopardize your chances of a successful submission.
