SACRAMENTO, Calif., March 31, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Forming a Limited Liability Company (LLC) is an important step for entrepreneurs to grow their business. But LLC formation requires business owners to make important decisions about where they will file their papers and how they will operate as a business. To help with these decisions, SunDoc Filings (, a leading provider of incorporation services, has published an LLC formation tip sheet.

"Entrepreneurs are focused on their business, not on legal paperwork," says Stan Huser, President of SunDoc Filings. "We thought that publishing a tip sheet might guide people make good decisions for their business."

A Limited Liability Company is a streamlined company structure designed to provide many of the limited liability features of a corporation, together with the tax efficiencies and operating flexibility of a partnership.

Huser offers the following tips for entrepreneurs forming an LLC:

1. Decide the state in which the Limited Liability Company will be formed. Different states have different rules governing LLCs, especially regarding taxes, annual reports and other ongoing requirements. It's important to know the rules for the chosen state.

2. Prepare and file the Article of Organization for the Limited Liability Company. Forms are often available on the domicile state's Secretary of State's website.

3. Confirm that the proposed Limited Liability Company name is available and is not currently registered by someone else. The proposed name must include the words LLC, L.L.C., Limited Liability Company, Limited Liability Co., Ltd. Liability Company, or LTD. Liability Co.

4. Appoint a Service of Process or a Registered Agent. This provides a physical address where a writ, summons or other legal papers can be served to the business in case of a lawsuit or other legal action, and it is required by most states. Many LLCs choose to use a third-party registered agent service for this, instead of their day-to-day business address.

5. Decide how the Limited Liability Company will be managed. Limited Liability Companies can be structured as either "Manager Managed" or "Member Managed". A Member Managed LLC is the most common choice for small businesses, but larger companies, companies with one or more silent partners, and certain other companies may prefer a Manager Managed structure.

"Choosing the right options avoids trouble down the road," says Huser. "It avoids the need to amend the LLC's operating agreement at a later date."
