how to get my llc certificate

Comment by Terrance Babauta

how can i find documents for my llc or ein first off i'm not your lawyer i'm not your attorney i'm not your cpa i'm just providing generally available information from my years of experience uh second like subscribe comment below if you're getting value out of this video um so i didn't really know how to answer this question from the perspective of just someone that doesn't know where their documents are or someone that's a customer of ours so if someone is a better legal customer and they just don't know where their documents are you just go to click log in go to your live dashboard you can see all of the information that we have you can change that information if you don't like the name of your business anymore you can just change it in the field there it will pop up a prompt that says this is how you change the name we'll do it for you here's the price here's the state filing fee here's a little bit more information and then you can just boom take care of it you want to add a new manager operator to the business you want to remove a member of the business you want to change your address you can do all that you want to find your ein it's already there uh all of the information let's say you are with us for 10 years and you make a lot of changes uh to the legal documents and whatever it will all be there in perpetuity so we'll have a log of all that so if you use us you don't really have to worry about that because you can just go to the website log in we've always got it but if you just lost your information that's more complicated uh if it's a state-related thing it's not that bad you just go to secretary of state's website again you can go to and look under resources there's a name search thing and it'll show you all 50 states and links to where you can do the name search most states will have the pdf of the original paper filing on file and they'll be public so you can actually go find anybody's llc um as long as the state supports this and just type in the name of the business your business and uh once you get there you just download the pdf that's the original filing will be public most of the time so that's how you get the llc document from the state um if you can't find it you can always call the the secretary of state they're there to help you i will say that they are sometimes on the website it's not updated i have called myself uh the new york secretary of state waited on the phone for an hour i said hey have faxed this document to you and they said what fax did you use and i said i gave gave them the number and they said oh that's not the right fact somewhere i said it's on your website they go yeah it just hasn't been updated in a while that's just how these government entities are and this is why it's such a pain and why it's so beneficial to you someone like us better legal uh if you so so yeah you can just call the secretary of state you'll wait on the phone for a little bit uh same with the irs the irs is a lot harder because it's a lot bigger organization than any of the states uh you're gonna get you're gonna usually have to fax them they love faxing and so if you fax them it's going to take weeks so you got to figure out exactly what you're going to fax them maybe it's a request for information for your uh ein number that you lost you know maybe just go look at old tax records if you can if you can think of where those are otherwise you have to do a request for information it's a fax it's going to take six to eight weeks and you're just gonna have to wait and so that's a big pain so anyway hopefully that was useful if you found it useful like subscribe uh comment share get an llc from better legal tell a friend to get an llc from better legal you can actually go to forward slash referrals and become an affiliate referral even if you're not a customer of ours and you will be able to give a hundred dollar discount to any of your friends or family and once they buy we will then send you 100 check in the mail how can we afford to do that well it's actually less expensive to do that it's more profitable for us to do that and share the wealth with your friend and you than it is to get a customer from google ads we spend hundreds of thousands of dollars a month on google ads and um other billion dollar tech companies uh to earn business and so we'd rather you spread the wealth and i'll share it with you so uh you can do that and that's it until next time

Thanks for your comment Terrance Babauta, have a nice day.

today we're talking about how to fill out llc membership certificates an llc membership certificate represents your ownership of a limited liability company filled out properly it gives you proof that you own the company in addition it shows the taxing authorities and anybody who wants to sue you that you have completed the legal requirements by properly completing your llc formalities so that your llc is more likely to hold up under a legal attack or tax on it hi i'm the business guy and i've been in the company formation field since 1991 our company started in 1906. i believe we have over 80 000 clients in our database we have attorneys on staff and we are the nation's leading asset protection and company formation firm and today we're talking about how to fill out llc membership certificates and be sure to watch all the way to the end because we cover important information that you need to know and by the way if you're watching this on youtube please click the like button below so youtube promotes it and we can help out a lot more people and you can also click the subscribe button so that when more videos come out like this you'll be up to date right away now certificates have different formats sometimes the state or country where the company is formed is pre-printed on the certificates other times you will need to write it in sometimes the number of membership units is in the upper left hand corner and sometimes it is a separate blank shortly after the name of the member so just fill it out as the certificate is formatted okay now let's take a closer look at some llc membership certificates and what you do first of all you'll see the name is pre-printed or you'll need to fill out the name of the company next you'll see the number of units that's the number of individual units that are available that the company can issue you'll also see a blank line that shows the name of the member now this can be a person it can be another company it can be a trust or other business entity then you'll see the number of units allotted to that particular person company or trust you'll have a place where you can fill out the date the certificate was signed and then you'll see signature lines for the members if it is a member managed llc or the managers if it's a manager managed llc finally in the center you will squeeze the corporate seal or llc seal in this section the llc seal is usually found in a corporate record book now keep in mind this information isn't legal advice for legal advice speak to a licensed attorney we have license attorneys on our staff if you need some help now first of all the number of units now there are two ways to do this you can either write the number of units this particular certificate represents or you can enter the percentage the standard way is to write the number of units i prefer for simplicity to write the percentage so in this example it shows that 100 of the units are owned by pat smith or pat smith is the sole member of this particular llc again instead of the percentage you can write the number of units so in this example it's 50 out of 100 units are owned by pat smith now let's say your llc is owned inside of a trust okay if it's on the side of a trust you'll see that the name of the trust as well as the name of the trustee is included in this example it says abc trust in parentheses cook islands klm limited comma trustee owns 100 of the units of this particular limited liability company so that's how you fill it out if a trust owns the llc if a trust is the member of the llc you need to write both the name of the trust and the name of the trustee so you need to enter both not just one now on occasion we'll set up two llc's to go inside of an asset protection trust because we have an ira sub trust so the assets that represent an ira go in that portion of the trust including this llc so if this particular llc for example is owned by a subtrust say for an ira it'll say ira subtrust of abc trust cook islands comma klm limited trustee so you name the subtrust you name the trust that subtrust is a part of and you name the trustee so all three now let's say for example your llc is held directly inside of a self-directed ira you simply fill it out usa trust comma inc that's the custodian comma custodian for ira of pat smith account number one two three four five let's say the llc is inside of a self-directed pension plan you fill it out usa trust comm inc pension admin that's the pension administrator for pat smith account number one two three four five now sometimes you need to fill out llc membership certificates different ways for different people for example let's say you're opening up a bank account in the name of the llc typically you fill out the certificate in your own name for the bank because if it was in a trust the bank would want to see the trust they may need to see id and articles from the corporate trustee etc so it might be in your best interest to fill out the certificate in your own name first and then you avoid that certificate and fill out another certificate with your trust slash trustee owning the company so i hope
