Running a Louisiana LLC

Once you’re done forming your Louisiana LLC, all you have to do is follow these next few steps. We can walk you through the last process:
Step 1. Designate a Registered Agent
Most people hire a Registered Agent to receive and sign important documents because they know they won’t be able available every day during regular business hours. A Registered Agent and office are both required within the state.
Step 2. Have an EIN
To help identify your Louisiana LLC easily, the IRS gives business entities a unique Employer Identification Number.
Step 3. Form an Operating Agreement
An LLC Operating Agreement allows you to define your Louisiana LLC as you see fit. The state doesn’t require this agreement and leaves it up to you.
Step 4. Plan a Meeting
Start your Louisiana LLC on the right note. Have an organizational meeting with your LLC members and make business decisions that’ll have a lasting impact on your company.
Step 5. Submit an Initial Report
Louisiana requires that you submit an LLC Initial Report Form (Form 73) at the time of incorporation. There is a $100 fee. If you want to expedite the process, you can pay an extra $30-$50.
