How to form a New Hampshire LLC (Limited Liability Company)
Organizing a New Hampshire LLC
Certificate of Formation
A limited liability company is formed in New Hampshire by submitting the completed Certificate of Formation with the attached Form SRA-Addendum to Business Organization, and paying the filing fee to the New Hampshire Department of State, Corporations Division. Submit the certificate by mail or in person. The filing fee is $100. This is comprised of $50.00 for the certificate of formation plus $50.00 for the Form SRA addendum. New Hampshire takes approximately two weeks to process the certificate; however, if you walk it in with an additional $30, New Hampshire will process it on the same day.
The Certificate of Formation must include Form SRA – "Addendum to Business Organization and Registration Forms - Statement of Compliance with New Hampshire Securities Laws." This form is required for all businesses being formed or registering in the state of New Hampshire. New Hampshire law requires that before an application for business registration is accepted, the limited liability company must provide a statement that its business has complied with the state's securities law.
