Running a Pennsylvania LLC

If you’ve completed forming your Pennsylvania LLC, it’s time to take the next step. We’ll explain how to proceed:
Step 1. Designate a Registered Agent
Unlike most states, Pennsylvania only requires an in-state registered office. The state does not require any Registered Agents, whether in state or out of state.
Step 2. Register for an EIN
Take this one step to register for an Employer Identification Number. It never expires so you never have to repeat this step again.
Step 3. Hold an LLC Operating Agreement
Pennsylvania permits both written and spoken forms of an LLC Operating Agreement, although some modifications under state law require a written operating agreement. It should be noted that Pennsylvania makes this step optional but it’s still wise to create one.
Step 4. Hold an Organizational Meeting
Holding an organizational meeting will help you start your Pennsylvania LLC on the right foot. There are no specific requirements for assembling an organizational meeting in Pennsylvania.
Step 5. File a Statement of Information
Pennsylvania requires you to submit a Statement of Information, also known as a Certificate of Formation in the state. The fee is $125.
