Each state has its own rules that apply to forming an LLC. Knowing Connecticut’s requirements will make forming your LLC easier.
Naming your Connecticut LLC
In Connecticut, acceptable name endings include "Limited Liability Company," "LLC" or "L.L.C." Connecticut permits you to abbreviate the word "Limited" as "Ltd." and "Company" can be abbreviated as "Co."
Each state has its own requirements regarding members/managers of LLCs. The following are Connecticut’s:
- Minimum number. Your LLC must have one or more members/managers.
- Residence requirements. Connecticut requires that members/managers have a physical address (no post office boxes).
- Age requirements. Connecticut does not have age requirements.
- Inclusion in the Articles of Organization. You must list member/manager names and addresses in the Articles of Organization.
Requirements for the Articles of Organization
Connecticut LLC’s are formed by filing Articles of Organization and paying the filing fee established by the state.
You must appoint a registered agent when you file your Articles of Organization. You must list the name and address of your registered agent. The agent must have a physical address (no post office boxes) in Connecticut and must be available during normal business hours to accept important legal and tax documents for the business.
Professional services businesses
Connecticut does not allow professionals, such as accountants, attorneys, and physicians, to form a professional limited liability company (PLLC).
