Organization's Llc Articles

It is simple to get a Nebraska Certificate of Organization!

We’ll walk you through the Nebraska LLC Articles of Organization filing process in three simple stages.

Get Your Organizational Certificate Form

Create the Organizational Certificate

File the Organizational Certificate

Step 1: Obtain Your Organizational Certificate Form

Nebraska does not have a standard form for entrepreneurs to use when creating a Certificate of Organization. Instead, you must produce a Certificate of Organization with specific information and submit it either online or by mail.

Step two: Create the Organizational Certificate

We will assist you in creating the Nebraska Certificate of Organization in this phase.

You must include the following information on the form you create:

Name and address of the entity

Process Information Service Agent

Date of Implementation

The phrase “Organizer” and the signature of the Organizer

Additional PLLC Details (if applicable)

Name and address of the entity

First, you must provide the legal name and address of your LLC.

When selecting a name for your company, you must ensure that the name:

fulfils Nebraska naming standards

is not currently in use by another Nebraska firm

Adhere to the Nebraska Naming Guidelines:

Your business name must contain the words “limited liability company” or “limited company” or one of its acronyms (LLC, L.L.C., LC, or L.C.).

Your LLC’s name cannot include terms that may be confused with a government organisation (FBI, Treasury, State Department, etc.).

Certain prohibited terms (e.g., bank, attorney, university) may need extra documentation and the participation of a licenced professional in certain jurisdictions.

Your name cannot be the same as, or deceptively similar to, the name of any other existing company in the state. Nebraska reserved names are included.

Examine Name Availability:

Is your surname legal in Nebraska? Do a name search on the Nebraska Secretary of State’s website to ensure that the name you choose isn’t already used.

Obtain a Domain Name:

We suggest that you check to see whether your company’s name is accessible as a web domain. Even if you don’t intend to create a company website right away, you may wish to purchase the URL to prevent others from doing so.

Process Information Service Agent

Next, provide the name and address of your process server. A P.O. box cannot be used; it must be an actual address.

In other states, an agent for service of process, also known as a registered agent, receives and transmits legal papers on behalf of your LLC. When you form your Nebraska LLC, you must provide your agent for service of process as well as their registered office address.

Your process server may be anybody over the age of 18 who resides in Nebraska. During normal business hours, your agent must always be accessible at the registered office.

Date of Implementation

Include the date on which you want your Certificate of Organization to become effective.

The Organizer’s Signature and the Word “Organizer”

The name(s) of your LLC’s organizer(s) must be stated and signed on the Certificate of Organization.

Additional PLLC Details (if applicable)

If you are forming a professional service LLC (PLLC), give information in accordance with state legislation 21-117. Professionals such as physicians, attorneys, accountants, and engineers create PLLCs.

Step 3: Submit the Organizational Certificate.

You must submit the Certificate of Organization with the Secretary of State to register your LLC. This may be done online or in the mail.

Steps to Take After Forming Your Nebraska LLC

After you’ve submitted your Certificate of Organization, you should do the following:

Make a Business Agreement

Obtain an EIN

Establish a Business Bank Account

Purchase Licenses and Permits

Make a Business Agreement

A Nebraska LLC operating agreement is a legal document that details your LLC’s ownership structure and member functions.

Although an Operating Agreement is not necessary in Nebraska to incorporate an LLC, it is a good idea to have one. You may begin working on your operating agreement before, during, or after filing your Certificate of Organization.

If you do not register your operating agreement with the state, it will be preserved in your LLC’s confidential business records.

Obtain an EIN

An Employer Identification Number (EIN) is your LLC’s equivalent of a social security number. If you want to recruit staff or create company bank accounts, you’ll need an EIN.

You may get your EIN for free by using the IRS website, fax, or mail. Read our What is an EIN article to discover more about EINs and how they might benefit your LLC.

Establish a Business Bank Account

It is critical to use specific business banking and credit accounts to safeguard your company’s corporate veil. When you combine your personal and company accounts, your personal assets (house, vehicle, and other possessions) are at danger if your LLC is sued.

Purchase Licenses and Permits

When forming an LLC, you should consider if your company requires any licences or permissions to operate legally. There are a few commercial operations that need licences or permissions on the federal level.

Learn how to secure the licences and permissions required for your company, or hire an expert to handle it for you:

Federal: For federal business licences and permits, see the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA).

State: Visit Nebraska’s Business Licensing page to apply for or learn more about licences, permits, and registration.

Local: Inquire with your county clerk regarding local licences and permissions.
