Running an Alabama LLC

You’re only a few steps away from completing your Alabama LLC. Learn what to do next:
Step 1. Appoint a Registered Agent
It’s required to keep both a Registered Agent and office within Alabama. You can choose to be your own, or select a professional to do it for you. We can help.
Step 2. Get an EIN
An Employee Identification Number is a unique code used to identify your LLC. Think of it like an Social Security Number for your company.
Step 3. Prepare an Operating Agreement
While creating an LLC Operating Agreement is not mandatory in Alabama, it's highly advisable. You can create an operating agreement on Rocket Lawyer within just a few minutes.
Step 4. Have an Organizational Meeting
During an organizational meeting, you’ll meet with members of your Alabama LLC, have them approve the LLC Operating Agreement, collect initial contributions, appoint the officers (if any), and address any other issues.
Step 5. Submit a Statement of Information
After the taxable year of your Alabama LLC begins, you must submit a Statement of Information within three and a half months. You’ll have to pay $100 to file the State of Information and a mandatory fee for the county probate judge, which varies by state but the cost could be as low as $50.
