Articles of Incorporation Attorney
Articles of Incorporation, often referred to as Articles of Organization or Certificate of Formation, is a legal document that sets forth the type of entity you will operate your business under. They are filed with the Texas Secretary of State.
Required information for Forming an LLC:
- The name of the LLC
- Whether the LLC is member managed or manager managed. In member-managed LLCs, all members have a say in the decision-making process of the company. Each member is an agent of the LLC, which means they are able to accept legal documents like lawsuits and notices on behalf of the LLC. In manager-managed LLCs, the authority to run the day to day operations of the LCC is given to the manager(s).
- The name and address of the members (if member managed) or manager (if manager managed)
- The name and address of the registered agent. Texas requires a registered agent for every entity in order to conduct business within the state.
- The name of the organizer. The organizer is an individual that is responsible for filing forms and putting everything together to make sure the company is authorized to do business.
Once the information is filed with the state, the information will be public record. When you’re ready to take your business to the next level and form an LLC, it’s wise to have a small business attorney draft and/or review your Certificate of Formation as well as your Company Agreement.
