PA LLC certificate and an LLC operating agreement.
PA A Federal Tax ID EIN.
Pennsylvania Business Tax Registration (Business License)

In Erie, your LLC name is required to have the suffix "Limited Liability Company" or "Limited Company," or a suffix such as "LLC," "LC," "L.L.C.," or "L.C."

Before we file your LLC, we will search for your LLC name availability.

You may want to file for a name that you like to be reserved but that may cost more and in most cases you will not have to.

2. Obtain the LLC Articles of Organization

That is exactly how an LLC is created at the state level. You will need to register your Articles of Organization. In Erie, the articles of organization which are normally a couple of pages long, require that a registered agent is assigned.

3. Assign or be the Erie Registered Agent

A registered agent, in Erie, may be yourself if you are an one member LLC. The function of the agent is to receive service of process for any suit that might be filed vs your LLC.

4. An Operating Agreement is Required in addition to the Articles of Organization

The operating agreement is required in every state because you need it to open a bank account and also need to notarize it and keep it to prove that you are the owner of the LLC. As discussed, the articles of organization, i.e., the LLC certificate does not have the

5. Register for Other Licensing and Tax Registrations

EIN: All Erie LLCs must have an EIN. You may have heard that if you are the sole member and you treat your LLC as a disregarded entity, you may not need it. However, you cannot open an LLC business bank account without an EIN, so you do need it. In addition, If your LLC has more than one member, you must obtain the Federal Tax ID also called an Employer Identification Number (EIN). Of course, you also need an EIN if your LLC will be an employer, treated as a corporation or if it has more than one member.

Business License: A business license is a business tax registration separate from other tax or licesning registrations. An LLC needs a business license.

State Tax Registration: In some states, the department of revenue may want you to register and obtain a tax number as a general number to identify you for taxes. Otherwise, there are 2 State Tax IDs: an State Employer Tax ID SEIN and a Sales Tax ID also called

a seller's permit.

State Income Taxes: Most states, as well as the State of Pennsylvania, require you to file a income tax return for your LLC. You do that as you file the federal tax return. Each member must pay his share of taxes if the LLC is treated as a partnership even in the case that an owner resides in another state.

6. Registering as a Foreign LLC

In all states, if you are an LLC from another state, you will either have to register a new LLC in Pennsylvania or register as a foreign LLC. In both cases the fees are about the same and the same effect is effected.

PA LLC vs. "S" Corporation.

As with an "S" Corporation, a limited liability company is like another company or neighbor. So for example if someone sues your neighbor and obtains a judgment against him, they cannot seize your house to satisfy the judgment because it is a judgment vs your neighbor. So an LLC is a shield against
creditors and lawsuits arising out of business transacions.
The llc will shield your personal assets such
as automobiles or homes. An LLC is more flexible but an "S" Corporation may help you save on employment taxes if you are self employed so long as you pay yourself a reasonable salary and then pay yourself dividents from the S corporation because dividents are not subject to employment taxes. PA Incorporation.

You can incorporate instead of setting up an LLC. A corporation can be either "S" or "C" as a business corporation. It is like a shield / veil against creditors
and lawsuits arising out of business transacions.
The corporation will shield your personal assets
such as your investments in a brokerage house and automobiles or homes. Also, note that if you incorporate or set up an LLC, you will not need to file for an assumed business trade name

LLC Refers to the Legal Company Structure

The legal structure is selected during business registration. If you choose to be an LLC, you do not need to file a Doing Business As (DBA) Certificate .  About 60% of new businesses select an LLC when choosing a corporate structure.  For example, if you are a sole owner, you can file a DBA and so select the sole proprietorship structure or select the LLC structure to be a corporate entity because LLCs afford corporate protections such as business and personal liability protections.  Thus, when starting a business whether an online, home, store, concession stand or a mobile cart, you will need to first select among sole owner/proprietor, partnership, LLC or corporation, all of which also require a   General Business License   (not a specific license to your type of business, necessarily but a requirement for LLC companies as well as for any business)  b) as well. If you decide to be a sole proprietorship instead of an LLC, and trade name is a business name other than your full personal legal name, you will need to file a   Doing Business As (DBA) Certificate . For instance, your name is John Doe, and you do business as Best Items By John, the name must be registered with a   DBA Biz Name document called a DBA certificate because Best Items By John, is not your full legal name. Also, note that whatever item that you sell or lease and it is an item that can be touched (i.e., tangible such as equipment, toys, merchandise, electronics, prepared food) requires a state sales tax ID (  Sellers Permit  ) to either buy or sell the items or products wholesale and or sell them retail. If you or your LLC are hiring workers within the next 30 days, you will need a   Federal EIN   and a   State EIN   (employer identification number). Even though if you treat the LLC as a disregarded entity, you can use your social security to conduct business, it is not recommended.  Other instances that you will need a federal tax ID are: if you are a partnership, an independent contractor, and a corporation or an   LLC   treated as a corporation. You can also obtain a federal tax ID as a sole proprietor and use it as a business tax ID in the place of a social security number. However, all businesses need at least 2-5 business registration so you will still need other registrations, such as licenses, an assumed business name DBA, and tax IDs as described above. Finally, even one person, sole owner/proprietors working from home or just online can form a LLC or incorporate, in which case, they will not need to file a DBA and they will be members of the LLC.
