Keep the Articles of Organization on file.

Step 1: Obtain your Articles of Organization.

You may either download and mail your Oklahoma Articles of Organization or establish an account and submit them online.

Step two: Complete the Articles of Organization

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

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

Name of the Entity

Address of the Entity

Email Address of the Entity

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

Existence Period

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:

fulfils Oklahoma naming standards

is not currently in use by another Oklahoma firm

The Oklahoma Naming Guidelines should be followed:

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.). The abbreviation for “limited” is “LTD.,” while the abbreviation for “company” is “CO.”

You must obtain permission to use the phrases savings and loan, building and loan, savings association, and savings bank.

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

Your name must be distinct from any other current company in the state. Oklahoma reserved names are included.

Examine Name Availability:

Is your name accessible in the state of Oklahoma? Do a name search on the Oklahoma 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.

Registered Office and Registered Agent

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

Your registered agent may be someone over the age of 18 who resides in Oklahoma. 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.

Existence Period

You may provide a perpetual period, a specific number of years, or a future effective expiry date.

Step 3: Submit the Articles of Incorporation.

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

You may submit your Articles of Organization in two ways:

Fill out the form online.

Send a physical copy by mail or in person.
Following the Official Formation of Your Oklahoma 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 Oklahoma 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 Oklahoma 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: Visit the Oklahoma Department of Commerce Business Licensing website to apply for or learn more about licences, permits, and registration.

Local: Contact your local county clerk and ask about local licenses and permits.
