Running a Tennessee LLC

Prepared to run your own Tennessee LLC? We have everything you need to complete your LLC right away:
Step 1. Nominate a Registered Agent
By law, you’re mandated to keep a Registered Agent and office in the state of Tennessee. You can use our Registered Agent service to meet these requirements.
Step 2. Set Up an EIN
An Employer Identification Number helps the IRS identify your business. It's like a Social Security Number for your LLC.
Step 3. Make an LLC Operating Agreement
To run your Tennessee LLC, it’s not mandatory to make an LLC Operating Agreement. The states makes it voluntary to create one, and allows for both written and verbal forms.
Step 4. Organize an Organizational Meeting
Tennessee has no strict requirements when assembling an organizational meeting.
Step 5. Submit a Statement of Information
Tennessee doesn’t mandate you to submit a Statement of Information but it’s a good way to get all your information on the record.
