Running a Wisconsin LLC

You’re only a few steps away from running your own Wisconsin LLC. Here's what you'll need to do:
Step 1. Find a Registered Agent
Wisconsin mandates all LLCs to have a Registered Agent and office within the state. If you’re not sure what to do next, our Registered Agent service can help.
Step 2. Have an EIN
With millions of businesses out there, the IRS needs a way to identify your Wisconsin LLC. An Employer Identification Number helps separate your business from others.
Step 3. Make an Operating Agreement
Once you form your Wisconsin LLC, you’ll want to lay out all the important aspects of your business, from who’s in charge to how decisions will be made. An LLC Operating Agreement allows you to define these business items. It’s optional to create one in Wisconsin but it must be in writing.
Step 4. Plan a Meeting
When holding an organizational meeting, Wisconsin does not offer any mandatory business items to include. However, you should still make sure you and your LLC members get together to make high-level business decisions.
Step 5. Submit a Statement of Information
It’s not necessary for you to send in your Statement of Information for your Wisconsin LLC but it’s still a good idea to do so. Once you fill out the form, it’ll contain all the basic information of your company.
