how long does it take to form an llc well that entirely depends on what state you're filing in but first i'm not your attorney i'm not your cpa i am just providing generally obtain easily obtainable information on the internet you can google it anywhere i'm just trying to curate this one place where we can find all of this information without having to go to 1500 different websites which is essentially what i had to do so i'm doing this for you now what state are you forming in there is a video that talks about which state is best to form in long story short where's the work being done is it being done in texas you're probably gonna need a texas llc or corporation is it being done in new york maybe a new york one um you know a lot of people talk about delaware and wyoming nevada that's a whole different bag of worms can of worms bag of something anyway um we have a video regarding that but um check that out we also have a playlist on uh you know all this information kind of condensed in a really highly produced short video so also check that out there but um every because because llc's are not formed with the federal government it's not with the irs or the united states government it's formed on a state level so you have to form an llc in texas or in california or in tennessee or in wyoming and so you know once you've decided which state you're going to form in there really is a bunch of different answers to how long it's going to take uh generally the answer is one to five days there are a couple of states out there that are troublemakers it might take 12 to 22 business days but those are like two states i think it's arizona and alabama they're the two longest states by a wide margin texas for example is two days new york is instant you can get your new york llc from better legal actually in 11 minutes um we say an hour it should be about 11 minutes and it's during business hours so you know new york just has a different system than texas and texas has a different system than delaware in delaware you don't go online and fill out a form you fax the information in yes you still fax the information into delaware because they're so popular they just don't feel the need to update any of their systems um so delaware takes a handful of days and you got to wait for it to come in the mail whereas new york and texas sends it to you via email wyoming is another state that's instant there are 13 states that are instant but if you go to betterlegal.com you can actually go to our services page so betterlegal.com for slash services and plug in the state that you're looking for and that will give you the timetable on how long your state's gonna take but the general answer is that it's usually between one and three business days sometimes five business days the other caveat to that and this is not a better legal thing this is with everybody the caveat is that some states uh you know the state examiners are the ones that file this information and oftentimes in in florida and pennsylvania specifically they just fall behind so florida for example has state compliance that uh all piles onto one date and so they don't hire new people you know and i'm just this is conjecture i'm just assuming this is what happens so um if you work for the state of florida don't you know don't throw me under the bus um but you know they might not hire extra people because they don't have the budget their state government uh entity and so they might not have the budget to hire new people to handle all of the influx of uh state compliances that they have to get done while filing the the new ones and so uh some states might fall behind you know florida cranks out three business days like like normal but then every now and again it's 12 business days or pennsylvania is 15 business days or texas might fall behind or texas instead of doing two business days might be 24 hours it really just depends how long it takes the people uh doing it and so um in new york for example there aren't really any people that have to physically do this work to have to do the filing and that's why it's instant texas and delaware actually have physical people taking this information in delaware taking it from the fax machine and putting it into the computer and then it's in in the system so the states that are instant humans don't have to do anything it just gets done um but for the states that have this kind of manual process sometimes it does take a while um if they fall behind and so that's a caveat uh there so um i've answered that question hopefully um i didn't go into too much gross detail about this and i answer your question pretty uh succinctly and you got a little bit more context if you like this video and you like some more of our videos i

yo what's up guys let me give you a video on how to apply for the LLC when you apply for the LLC it'll be different for every state unlike the Ein which is the same for every state if you need a video on how to apply for LLC in your state please leave a comment below and I will be sure to do a video for you when you get to this page you want to read over it it'll tell you all about the LLC it'll tell you the fees exactly what you're needed for and everything and when you get done reading over this just click file when you get to this part they're asking you if you want a standard limited liability company or one with series we're going to pick the one with standard we don't want the one with Series this is for like if you have a bigger company with a bunch of small companies inside of it so you just want to click the standard and then click continue for the provisions you want to agree to this click yes and then continue now for your limited liability company name you want to make sure you get a name that's very unique that no one has if you put a name in here that someone has or someone has that's close to it it will automatically pull that name up and you can say yes or no if this is your name or not if not then you want to start over and get another name and as you can see you need to put a LLC behind this LLC or L.L dot C then once you get to the principal place of business you want to put your address in your city your state and your ZIP code for this application you want to put your name everywhere when they get to the register agent you want to put your name again unless you really have someone that will handle all of the paperwork for you that will get all of the mail for you and actually tell you that the mail is there and tell you what it's all about and everything but other than that you just want to put your name because you don't want to get anyone else involved but you put your name your address your city your state your ZIP code if they don't pick your address up automatically just follow these steps too now for the manager's part this is the part you have to be careful for this is the part where I messed up that and I put an ex-fiancee's name and I was basically giving her the rights to my business so I had to call and get the application deleted and resubmit it and put my info on everything now when you get to this part for the organizer you want to put your information again you want to put your name your address your city or state your zip code and then click continue remember you want to put your name for everything your name your address right here you can look over everything and you can make sure everything is right then you can choose to get an expedited service or you can choose to get a no expedited service are not extra data service will take about 10 days in an expedited service will literally take less than 24 hours put your billing information in here which is the same information that's on your credit card and then click continue then after you get done with that information you'll come to the payment information and then you want to put your credit card your name and everything that's so associated with your credit card and then you're done so this is exactly how you follow LLC in Illinois if you want to get it really quick you just want to do the expedited service and you can get it within 24 hours once again thanks to all you guys and peace out
