How to form a New Jersey LLC (Limited Liability Company)
Organizing a New Jersey LLC
A limited liability company is registered in New Jersey by submitting a Public Records Filing for New Business Entity with the filing fee to the New Jersey Division of Revenue/Corporate Filing Unit. This form works for all business structures in New Jersey. Submit the form by mail, fax, in person or online. The filing fee is $125. New Jersey takes approximately two to three weeks to process your filing. You can walk it in or fax file with an additional $50 expedite fee, and New Jersey will finish in one day. Online submissions are processed in two days but it is a complicated process.
