Running a Montana LLC

It’s time to run your Montana LLC. Just follow these next few steps to complete the process:
Step 1. Name a Registered Agent
The state of Montana requires all LLCs to have a Registered Agent and office within the state. Our Registered Agent can help you meet these requirements.
Step 2. Register for an EIN
Social Security Numbers help identify individuals while Employer Identification Numbers help identify business entities.
Step 3. Develop an LLC Operating Agreement
Have you already defined the rules of your Montana LLC? An LLC Operating Agreement is a great way to do just that. Montana makes this process optional, and permits both written and spoken forms.
Step 4. Set Up an Organizational Meeting
Have you defined the structure of your Montana LLC yet? If so, have you and your LLC members all agree upon it? At organizational meetings, you and your LLC members will need to outline the guidelines of your business.
Step 5. File an Initial Report
It’s not necessary to file an Initial Report with Montana but the report helps to consolidate all the basic information of your business in one place.
