Kentucky LLC Articles

To form a Kentucky LLC, you will need to file Articles of Organization with the Secretary of State’s Division of Business Filings and pay the appropriate filing fee. Articles of Organization formally create your LLC and allow you to conduct business within the state.

Once your Kentucky LLC is formed, your company will be able to legally enter into contracts, be party to litigation, purchase and sell assets, and other such rights as are accorded to legal entities within the state.

Articles of Organization

Article 1: Name of Your LLC

Every Kentucky LLC must have a name that adheres to state law. You cannot register a name that is already in use by another entity. To check for availability, you can do a Kentucky business name search.

Article 2: Registered Agent

Every limited liability company operating within the state must designate a Kentucky registered agent. A registered agent accepts service of process on behalf of a business organization, such as a corporation or LLC. Agents must maintain a physical address within the state where certified mail can be delivered during regular business hours.

Article 3: Mailing Address

The company’s principal office mailing address must be listed here. It does not have to be an address in Kentucky.

Article 4: Management

An LLC can either be managed by its members or by appointed managers. On the Articles of Organization, you must simply select one form of management or the other.

Article 5: Effective Date

Articles of Organization can be processed either upon submission or upon a later date. If a later effective date is desired, then that date must be listed here. If a later date is chosen, it cannot be any later than 90 days after the filing is submitted.

Submitting the Articles of Organization

Articles of Organization must be submitted to the Secretary of State’s Division of Business Filings. The document can be filed online, mailed, or delivered in person.

Mailing Address

Office of the Secretary of State
PO Box 718
Frankfort, KY 40602-0718

There is a $40 filing fee which must accompany the filing.

Federal Beneficial Ownership Information Report Filing

As a newly-formed LLC, you’ll probably need to submit a Beneficial Ownership Information (BOI) Report to the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN). The BOI report provides the federal government with basic information about your LLC and the people with the most power over your business decisions and profits. Starting January 1, 2024, this report is due following company formation. This report is a little complicated, but we can make filing painless with our $9 BOI report filing service.
