Step 1: Obtain Certificate of Formation Forms

You may get your New Jersey Certificate of Formation by mail or in person.

Step two: Fill out the Formation Certificate

We will assist you with completing the New Jersey Certificate of Formation form in this stage.

To complete the form, you will need the following information.

Name and kind of entity

Business Objective


Name of the Registered Agent and the Address of the Registered Office

Name and kind of entity

A unique and clever company name is crucial, but it is not as necessary as a legally valid name.

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

fits the naming criteria of New Jersey

is not currently in use by another New Jersey firm.

Adhere to the New Jersey Naming Guidelines:

The word “limited liability corporation” or one of its acronyms must be in your name (LLC or L.L.C.). “Limited” may be shortened to “Ltd.” while “business” can be shortened to “Co.”

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

You must obtain permission to use any of the following restricted words in the name of your LLC: bank, banker, banking, blind, cemetery, citius, con-con, dba, e-com, express mail, handicapped, little league, mail, olympiad, olympia, olympian, altius fortius, olympic, olympus, realtor, trust, United States Olympic Committee, urban renewal insurance, zip

Your name must be distinct from any other current company in the state. This lists reserved names in New Jersey.

Examine Name Availability:

Is your name accessible in the state of New Jersey? Do a name search on the New Jersey Division of Revenue website to ensure that the name you choose isn’t already used.

A limited liability corporation may be formed in New Jersey for any lawful or non-prohibited business. For the public record, include a concise statement of the business objective.

Remember that a business goal including licencing, tax-exemption, or tax-deductible status needs specific wording from the IRS or a professional licence.


Indicate whether or whether your LLC has a set termination date. Otherwise, leave this section empty.

Registered Office and Registered Agent

A registered agent receives and transmits legal paperwork on behalf of your LLC. When you form your New Jersey LLC, you must provide your registered agent and registered office address.

Your registered agent may be anybody over the age of 18 who resides in New Jersey. During regular business hours, your registered agent must always be accessible at the registered office.

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 do not intend to create a company website today, you may want to purchase the URL to prevent others from gaining it.

Step three: Fill up and submit the Certificate of Formation.

You must submit the Certificate of Formation with the New Jersey Division of Revenue to register your LLC. This may be done online or in the mail.
Steps to Take After Forming Your New Jersey LLC

After you’ve submitted your Certificate of Formation, 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 New Jersey 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 New Jersey to incorporate an LLC, it is a good idea to have one. You may begin drafting your operating agreement before, during, or after filing your Certificate of Formation.

Your operating agreement will be held in the private business records of your LLC; you will not submit it with the state.

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: Use New Jersey’s Business Action Center to apply for or learn more about licences, permits, and registration.

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