Hey! This page walks you through the key steps of your LLC LTIE package with us.
Step 1. We collect your info.
The very first thing we do is collect the information we need from you to form the LLC. To do that, we’ll have you use this form to send us the necessary information. You should have filled it out already, but we’re providing the link again just in case.
Step 2. We point you in the right direction to form your LLC with the state.
Within 2 weeks of the date you signed the contract, we should have the LLC paperwork filed. To do this, Indie Law will provide guidance and consultation as you take the steps yourself to complete the LLC formation paperwork. Most states refer to this formation document as the “Articles of Organization.” It is the document that makes you “legit” with the state.
Step 3. If necessary, we walk you through the EIN application.
If your business does not already have an EIN (Employer Identification Number), we will get one for you at this time. An EIN is like a social security number for your business, and it’s used by the IRS.
The application is free, and you can apply online at this link. Note that the online application software only works Monday through Friday 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Eastern Time.
If you have any questions about this application, please let us know on Slack.
If your business ALREADY HAS an EIN, we’ll skip this step and move on.
Step 4. We draft an operating agreement and have you sign it.
The last step! Within 2 weeks of confirming the last step, we will send an operating agreement for you to sign. We make this super easy by sending you a copy that you sign and date electronically.
This document DOES NOT need to be filed anywhere, but it should be stored somewhere safe.
Note that if your LLC has multiple owners, we will send a draft before signing as you may want to customize certain parts of it.
