Running a Georgia LLC

It’s time for the exciting part: running your Georgia LLC. But before you do, find out what you need to know:
Step 1. Choose a Registered Agent
You need an official contact for your Georgia LLC. You’re allowed to serve as your own, or we can help find you a professional Registered Agent.
Step 2. Obtain an EIN
When you apply for an Employer Identification Number, the IRS automatically assumes that your Georgia LLC has been legally formed.
Step 3. Form an LLC Operating Agreement
Though it’s optional to form an LLC Operating Agreement, it’s highly advisable to create one. It serves as the rules of your business. In Georgia, they allow for both written and verbal operating agreements.
Step 4. Have a Meeting
Soon after you form your Georgia LLC, it’s a good idea to have an organizational meeting with your LLC members.
Step 5. File a Statement of Information
Georgia requires you to file a Statement of Information, also known as Articles of Organization and Transmittal of Information, within 90 days of organization. There is a $100 fee.
