Running an Indiana LLC

Want to learn more about running your Indiana LLC? Let us help you get started:
Step 1. Hire a Registered Agent
What happens if you or your Indiana LLC is served a summons, lawsuit, or official state documents and you’re not in? Indiana requires that you hire a Registered Agent and office to ensure that you receive all your important mail.
Step 2. Apply for an EIN
Employer Identification Numbers are issued to entities that might need it for a number of reasons, including reporting withholding tax.
Step 3. Create an Operating Agreement
The best way to really hammer out the way your Indiana LLC will run is with an LLC Operating Agreement. The state makes this agreement voluntary but it’s still recommended to create one. The agreement allows you to define the roles each of your members will play in the funding of your business, among many other important things.
Step 4. Organize a Meeting
The state of Indiana leaves it up to you to personalize your organizational meeting as you see fit. But you want to make sure you cover important agenda items, like defining the structure of your Indiana LLC and electing officers.
Step 5. Submit an Initial Report
An Initial Report provides information about your Indiana LLC, its officers, and other basic information. Indiana does not require you to file anything but it’s encouraged that you do.
