It is simple to file the Indiana Articles of Organization!

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


Get Forms for Your Articles of Organization

Complete the Articles of Organization Forms.

Forms of Articles of Organization must be filed.

Step 1: Obtain your Articles of Organization.

Indiana Articles of Organization may be downloaded and sent in.

Step two: Complete the Articles of Organization

We will assist you with completing the Indiana Articles of Organization form in this phase.

To finish each Article, you will need to know the following information:

Name and address of the entity

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


Type of Governing Authority

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:

fulfils Indiana naming standards

is not currently in use by another Indiana firm

Adhere to the Indiana Naming Guidelines:

The word “limited liability corporation” or one of its acronyms must be in your name (LLC or L.L.C.).

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

To use the term “bank” (or any variant) in the name of your LLC, you must first get permission from the Indiana Department of Financial Institutions.

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

Examine Name Availability:

Is your surname legal in Indiana? Do a name search on the Indiana InBiz website to ensure that the name you desire 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.

Registered Office and Registered Agent

A registered agent receives and transmits legal paperwork on behalf of your LLC. When you form your Indiana 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 Indiana. During normal business hours, your registered agent must always be present at the registered office.


You must specify if the LLC will exist indefinitely or has a predetermined dissolution date.

Governing Bodies

You must choose whether your LLC will be handled by a manager(s) or a single-member LLC.

Step 3: Submit the Articles of Incorporation.

You must submit the Articles of Organization with the Secretary of State to register your LLC.

You may submit your Articles of Organization in two ways:

Fill out the forms online.

Send a physical copy via the mail or in person.
Following the Official Formation of Your LLC

After filing your Articles 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

An Indiana LLC Operating Agreement is a legal document that defines your LLC’s ownership structure and member duties.

Although an Operating Agreement is not necessary in Indiana 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 Articles of Organization.

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.

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. On the federal level, a few corporate operations need licences and/or permissions.

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 the Indiana Business Owner’s Guide to apply for or learn more about licences, permits, and registration.

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