Frequently Asked Questions

What information is required when filing a certificate of organization for an LLC in Massachusetts?

When filing a certificate of organization for an LLC in Massachusetts, several pieces of information are required. Firstly, you need to have a unique LLC name that adheres to the state's naming guidelines. This includes containing the words “limited liability company” or the abbreviation “LLC”. It also means avoiding words that could cause confusion with a government agency. Secondly, you must have a registered agent who lives in or is authorized to do business in Massachusetts. This individual or company is designated to receive process service and other legal documents on behalf of your business. Thirdly, you need to request an employer identification number (EIN) from the IRS. This serves as a Social Security number for your business and is used to file state and federal taxes and to open a business checking account. The certificate of organization itself requires the following information: Federal EIN, LLC name and address, purpose of the business, dissolution date if applicable, duration of the LLC if applicable, registered agent name and address, and names, addresses, and signatures of members and managers.
