Vermont LLC

What is a Vermont LLC?

A Vermont LLC is a form of a business entity that combines the benefits of a corporation with the benefits of a partnership. Corporations provide limited liability to its owners/stockholders (meaning, generally, that the owners are not personally liable for the debts or obligations of the business) while partnerships provide pass-through single taxation to its owners (partners).

Benefits of Forming an LLC in Vermont (VT):

Taxes: An LLC has the flexibility to be taxed as a sole proprietor, partnership, S-corp or C-corp.

Pass-through Taxation: Typically, LLCs will choose to be taxed as a partnership to avoid double taxation, which occurs in corporations. This allows LLCs to distribute their profit among members who then report it on their personal tax returns. The LLC is not a tax payer, but often is required to file a tax return.

Limited Liability: The owners (members) of the LLC enjoy personal protection against some or all liability of the debts and obligations of the LLC.

Vermont LLC Annual Reports:

LLCs operating in Vermont (VT) are required to file an annual report two and a half months after the close of the LLCs fiscal year. For most LLCs this is March 15th.

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. There’s no fee to file, and your information does not go on the public record.

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 $25 BOI report filing service.

Registered Agent Information:

The Secretary of State of Vermont (VT) requires all LLCs operating within Vermont (VT) to have a designated registered agent at all times.  The registered agent may be any individual or business with a physical Vermont (VT) mailing address.
