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

To complete each step, you will need to know the following information:

Name of the Entity

NAICS Code and Business Purpose

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

Type of Governing Authority

Name of the 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:

Meets Alaska’s naming requirements.

Is not already in use by another Alaskan company

Adhere to the Alaska Naming Guidelines:

The word “limited liability corporation” or one of its acronyms must be in your name (LLC or L.L.C.). “Limited” is shortened as “Ltd.,” while “business” is abbreviated as “co.”

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

Unless the company has the proper professional licence, a business name may not include a term with professional licencing requirements, such as “Engineer.”

Entity names that mislead about corporate aims are not permitted. If you operate an oil firm, you couldn’t call your company “Solar Power Visionaries, LLC.”

An LLC’s name may include the name of a city, borough, or town; but, the name may not contain the words “city,” “borough,” or “village,” or otherwise indicate that the business is a municipality.

Your name must be distinct from any existing registered business name with the state.

Examine Name Availability:

Is your name legal in Alaska? Check the Alaska Department of Commerce, Community, and Economic Development website for availability of the name you desire.
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.

NAICS Code and Business Purpose

A limited lability corporation may be formed in Alaska for any lawful or non-prohibited business. Article 2 allows you to express “any legitimate” reason.

You must also provide the six-digit NAICS grouping code that best characterises your company’s activity at this moment. For further information, see the State of Alaska’s authorised NAICS codes.

Registered Office and Registered Agent

A registered agent receives and transmits legal paperwork on behalf of your LLC. When you form your Alaska 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 Alaska. During normal business hours, your registered agent must always be present at the registered office. A P.O. box cannot be used as your registered office address.

Governing Bodies

You must choose whether your LLC will be managed by members or management.

Step 3: Submit the Articles of Incorporation.

You must submit the Articles of Organization with the Alaska Department of Commerce, Community, and Economic Development to register your LLC.

You may submit your Articles of Organization in two ways:

Fill out the form online.

Send a hard copy through mail.
Following the Official Formation of Your Alaska 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 Alaska 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 Alaska 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.

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: Contact the Alaska Department of Commerce to apply for or learn more about licences, permits, and registration.

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