Learn how to start an LLC in New Jersey fast with all the information, resources, and tools you need in our New Jersey State Startup Guide. Read on for tips and what to do after your LLC is formed.
A Limited Liability Company, abbreviated as L.L.C., is a business type that can protect your personal finances while running your company. To start an LLC you must file articles of organization with the state where you operate. One member must be an individual or another LLC, which can then transfer ownership to other members or third parties. An LLC does not issue shares and at least one member needs to be in good standing with state and federal governments. Limited Liability Companies are taxed through individuals and those who hold an interest in the company are called members. They take part in how the company is run and have the right to collect dividends.
Understanding the process of forming a New Jersey LLC is important for many reasons. One reason is that it’s a legal entity and also has certain tax considerations. You’ll need to register with the New Jersey Division of Revenue and Enterprise Services and file a Certificate of Formation to start the LLC process. Citizens, non-citizens, IRAs, and other LLCs can own your New Jersey LLC.
It usually takes some time and the cost can vary. You might decide to file on your own, pay an attorney or tax professional – or order your LLC through our online formation system. Many attorneys and accountants offer LLC formation, but they generally charge higher fees for their services. If you are forming a complex business, we recommend contacting a tax professional or qualified attorney to help you make the right decision.

A Limited Liability Company (LLC) is a type of business entity that protects all members from personal liability and is cheaper to manage than a corporation. The thing that LLC formation offers is that you are able to separate your personal assets from the business. If there are any potential lawsuits, you are protected with limited liability. Operating an LLC can also be easy for startups because of varying tax advantages. LLCs can be owned by U.S. citizens, non-citizens, other LLCs, and IRAs.
If your company will provide services (instead of products), a New Jersey LLC may be right for you. Often they are easier and more affordable than other entity types. Only one member is required to form what is called a Single-Member or 1-Person LLC, so it’s possible to be the sole owner of your company. If you file your own paperwork, you can save money by filing the forms yourself online. MyCompanyWorks provides low rates on our New Jersey LLC Filing Services. Complex companies should consult a tax attorney or professional accountant to help determine the best legal form for their company. If you’re going to offer products, a New Jersey corporation may be more suitable. Our tax partners can help you make the right decision.
By taking advantage of resources like the SBA & Small Business Development Center, you can learn what needs to be done before you start your business. They also offer resources for funding, free tools, events, and networking that can help you start your business quickly and make good business decisions throughout your business journey.
As with any type of business, there are benefits and drawbacks to choosing an LLC. Take the time to think about whether forming an LLC in another state or form a Corporation may suit your business better than what a New Jersey LLC has to offer.
