what's up guys Devin here with another quick video on how to go about creating an LLC or in a limited liability company in the state of Georgia I know it varies state from state in state of Georgia you actually can not to sell online I know a lot of states may require you to physically go to the county office and Georgia it's really quick and it's really simple so today I'm going to walk you through the steps of creating your LLC online in addition I'm going to show you how to go about creating your tax ID number or your EIN for your business because this is one of those things that's extremely vital to do things like maybe open up a business account for your business so I'm gonna walk you through all these stuff and of course guys if you like the video if you learn something new please don't hesitate to press that like button down below and of course don't forget to subscribe for more alright let's get started so I'm gonna go ahead and pull up my internet here good old Google right and then what we're gonna do is we're gonna type in Georgia secretary iterative state just like that right and you're gonna go to the Georgia Secretary of State website typically it would be the first option unless you type in Georgia secretary state right from there you're gonna corporations okay and then there and put on my face a bit you're gonna hit file online okay it's really really quick and really simple so once you get here you're gonna go to online services and you're gonna have to create a username and password so if you don't have one created already I would advise you to go ahead and knock this process on so let me continue for all you would do is literally hit this button right here says create a user account right cool right so moving on I already have one set up so I'm just gonna go ahead and get my game it takes a few seconds but what you get in here you're gonna then hit where it says create or a register or I'm sorry create eight or register a business here it is right here against off to little arrow right there on the side right here create or register business so I'm gonna go ahead and get back create a register business like so okay and what you're gonna do is I am creating a new domestic business now if you heard I'm a not a Georgia resident or business that is in good standing or in its place of formation you just hit this other option but this is for those who are creating a new entity or a new business right you're gonna heat er select domestic limited partnerships are a domestic limited liability company so word because we're creating an LLC now if you wanted to create those other options from on profit corporation nonprofit a limited partnership and so on you can choose a lot but for the point of this video we're gonna go ahead and knock out the limited liability company because we want to create an LLC right okay so next we don't have a business registration of a reservation number if you do we get to let you would select yes and put it in here but in this case you know be a brand brand spanking new we don't have so we're gonna get note and continue for to our next option here you're gonna place your business a let's just say Bob Marley real estate right oh and it must contain LLC all right this is a limited liability company our next option let's say the Marley brothers LLC right these aren't needed but in the event that you can't use that particular registered name if it's taken already you you'll have a lot to choose from or they will have other options for you to work with right okay it's applicable upload of a letter of name approval one from an appropriate agency and I think this is if you were needing some type of a pool from a particular agency in this instance this isn't needed hopefully the name you choose does it require any of that good stuff since it's a unique name that you're going to use and it's not from some or rather it's you don't have you don't need any terms of documentation needed from like your partners or a specific business to continue forward all right so we're gonna go ahead and continue forward to our next business purpose here in a ICS Co so basically what it's asking is for what does your business have to do what is it witnessed a niche for me personally we're dealing with real estate so I would obviously like the option where it says real estate right so I would go to real estate and Lynch leasing and then furthermore you have a sub code here in my particular instance I would use let's say other activities related to real estate but again just depending on your niche you know you have several options to choose from let's choose something that's you know mostly related to your particular business so that whenever they do go through and create your your LLC for you you'll have something or that code that is strictly strictly specific to your business of choice right so once you get that done you're gonna go here and put in your address so let's see I'm just gonna use one of these old addresses here I have so many so let's just use this headers here I think this is from a house I was working on selling so you just put in your address to city and county or country furthermore you'll put the state in the zip code right next you also put an email address so I'll just fill in some information on one of my email addresses I have so just simply put down your primary you put down the secondary email address if need be I'm just going to keep that blank you could burn that primary email address also you are going to create a registered agent so this is the person that basically creates is LLC for you or that needs to go in and do any of these is filing for you so again in my case I put it in my name all my information just like so right and it fills in here you go hit add right once you have it had it you'll see it add it here right under there there's no other optional provisions that I need so I'm just going to continue forward and then all you do next is just hit this box claiming the Fowler's the Defiler is surreal and that you're you're you're certifying that everything is accurate right okay so I'm the ultimate signer and the authorizer title is going to be for myself I would put member because I'm a member of the organization right so I'm going to board oh it says please create the registered agent some what reason why I have myself selected here here we go so you got to make sure all this good stuff still damn form looks like he continued his trade a registered agent it still says that so this is I don't know why this part gets pretty iffy so here what I'm gonna do I'll create my girl information here I'm gonna meet your Italy guy - all right we'll click email and all that good stuff here you got we're in Fulton County so I'll just you'll just create this based on where you are right there go all right let's see if that works everyone at work all right cool so here we are we're almost done reading the review stage here so are you gonna do next is this verify everything looks good Bob miles real estate or the multi brothers see you got your address here let's see principal purpose is real estate in

ready to incorporate an LLC in Georgia but unsure where to begin today you will learn about the most common ways to start your business including the correct forms you'll need how to register your LLC critical naming requirements and all other vital tips and tricks then as a bonus later on in the video I will reveal to you a trustworthy registered agent who will help set up your LLC for free so make sure to stick with me until the end Georgia LLCs are cost effective and easy to set up the state of Georgia like other states has several specific LLC requirements there are three main ways you can start an LLC in Georgia first is the DIY or do-it-yourself process where you mostly depend on Georgia state's website the second way is hiring a professional service that practically offers more efficiency and Security in a process of creating your LLC while the third one is hiring an attorney we will skip the attorney hiring portion because that's expensive and most business owners won't need that service first let's take a look at the steps required for starting an LLC on your own step one name your business before anything else you will have to think of the llc's legal business name each LLC in Georgia must have a distinct LLC name that is not currently in use you must include the terms limited liability company or an abbreviation such as LLC you cannot include phrases such as a corporation which would lead people to believe you are a different business organization knowing if your business name is taken or not is very easy just go to Google and type in the words business entity records Georgia Secretary of State and click the first search result I also have the link in the description below for your convenience it will lead you to a landing page of business entity records in Georgia scroll down a little and you will see some search options which make checking the availability of your business name easier generally you can click the first option entity name and type in your business name for example I am typing a very common business name Here Car Wash Express which will give you a list of existing business names a unique business name will say no matches found just like this random name I typed in keep in mind that the division of Revenue doesn't check names for trademark compliance it's ultimately up to you and your business attorney to ensure that your llc's name doesn't infringe on any other company's rights Step 2 Georgia requires LLC to have a registered agent an agent has a physical address a PO Box is not allowed and is available during business hours this agent will serve as the llc's primary point of contact for receiving key legal papers tax warnings summons subpoenas and so on you can register yourself or someone in your company but I highly recommend getting a professional registered agent as they have more knowledge by protecting your company in cases of possible cracks while I agree that family members or friends are reliable enough to be trusted as your llc's agent you are more comfortable sleeping at night knowing that your agent is professional and trained to manage legal documents to avoid problems concerning Court schedules filing reports with the Secretary of State Etc besides hiring a professional registered agent is not expensive in fact there are companies that offer a free registered agent as part of your package when you form your LLC through them ink file is a company I recommend which has this free service Inc file offers a free registered agent on your first year of signing up for their service during that free year you can already take advantage of a professional and trained agent to receive legal documents on your behalf a dashboard where you can always access the correspondence that your agent has received as well as email notifications and automatic forwarding whenever your registered agent receives documents step 3 filing the Delaware LLC certificate of formation after that you must file the certificate of formation with the Georgia Secretary of State's business entities Division and the office of the judge of probate to officially incorporate a domestic Georgia limited liability company the Georgia state filing cost for LLCs is 100 for domestic LLCs and 225 dollars for foreign LLCs you can add 100 extra for expedited filing what's the difference good question basically a domestic LLC means that you are already a resident of Georgia and you want to build a business in Georgia foreign LLC on the other hand is for people living outside Georgia but wanting to start a business or a franchise of their business in Georgia with that said most businesses would be applying for a domestic LLC you can file the certificate of formation online or by mailing it to the Secretary of State expect the LLC certification process to take approximately two weeks this is three to four days for the judge of probate and 10 days for the Secretary of State step 4 prepare an operating agreement now an operating agreement is a good idea to have in place with the other members if your LLC has more than one member although a limited liability company operating agreement is not necessary for Georgia your operating agreement should clarify how your company or business will handle big picture issues such as allocating earnings and losses and dissolving the company your operating agreement should also cover the transfer of membership interest profits or losses and distributions initial Investments decision-making Powers voting rights and management and lastly dissolving the business step 5 obtain an EIN an EIN or employer identification number is a federal tax ID issued by the IRS your EIN is used by them to readily identify your firm and tax filings all Georgia firms pay a business privilege tax and the state requires you to have an EIN to file you may also be required to provide your EIN when opening a bank account or applying for municipal permits or licenses obtaining an EIN is a slightly longer process compared to their previous steps I'm sure you know anything to do with the IRS is confusing first you have to have complete knowledge of your LLC such as your company information managing member information business address business information company details and even critical information regarding vehicular assets and federal excise taxes this is another reason why getting a professional registered agent is way more convenient as they can do this for you as part of their service now let's talk about the second option to form an LLC and that is hiring a professional formation service professional formation services do all the steps you should be doing on your own from filing necessary forms to acting as your registered agent you usually have to allocate a specific budget for this option as I already mentioned earlier Inc file is one of the best companies out there to help you form your LLC you can click on the link in the description to get access to this deal Inc file is one of a kind as it offers a free package with services such as preparing and filing your articles of organization well you still have to pay 237 dollars for the state
