How do I form an LLC IN Arizona?I get asked this question quit often from people who are either thinking abut starting or buying a small business in Arizona.
There are basically 2 options: you can either contact a lawyer or an accounting firm like Cl And Company in Tempe and have them handle it for you for a fee, (that's what i do). You can call CL And Company at 480-831-5260, and ask for either Charlie or Julie. They are CPAs who specialize in working with small business owners in Arizona and I highly recommend them.
The other option is can go to the State of Arizona corporation commission web site and do it your self. This page on their web site gives you a quick idea of the fairly simple procedure (including doing a name search to check availability) and access to links to the download the forms you need to fill out and submit to their office for approval.
As far as costs for filing an Arizona LLC, its currently $50.00 for a standard filing and $85.00 for an expedited filing. As far as how long it will take to process your AZ LLC filing, their web site say currently an expidieted filing can take 3 to 5 days, and a regular filing over 2 weeks.
