The Lawyer Defined™ Operating Agreement is the the highest-quality Operating Agreement available, short of hiring a dedicated attorney. Only available at L4SB. This is required by law in most states, and absolutely critical for asseet protection and to minimize cost and expense associated with lawsuits.

*Startup LLC’s are permitted up to 2 uses of our Lawyer Defined™ Operating Agreement generator within the first 2 months of forming the LLC. This is great for updates and changes to your company that could impact the Operating Agreement, for example, adding or removing partners, or changing the LLC’s tax status or management approach.

**Boss LLC’s are permitted up to 3 uses of our Lawyer Defined™ Operating Agreement within the first 12 months of forming the LLC.

***Executive LLC’s are permitted unlimited access to our Lawyer Defined™ Operating Agreement generator forever (while an ongoing client, paying for the Executive LLC service).

If you’re going to move money around, or you need a bank account or merchant account, you will need a Federal Employee Identification Number (also called FEIN or EIN). By selecting this option, L4SB will either obtain your FEIN for you, or walk you through the process to help you do it yourself. (Note: L4SB is considered a “third-party designee” by the IRS, and as such, can obtain the FEIN for your LLC, but not its SS-4. The SS-4 is mailed to you by the IRS (taking 5-9 weeks) when L4SB applies for it on your behalf, or you can obtain the SS-4 immediate if you apply for the FEIN yourself).
$129/year
A Registered Agent has no authority over your company, but it’s a critical function. Specifically a Registered Agent receives service of process and legal notices for your company. L4SB is a quality Registered Agent that can answer questions, point you in the right directions, and help ensure you never get surprised with a devastating default judgement.

First year is free, but $129/year thereafter.

Need your formation in a hurry? Expedited Service means we put your order at the top of the queue, and we pay the state fees necessary for expedited service at the state level. Most states can turn around filings within 1-2 business days, when you pay the expedited fee.

When a LLC obtains its FEIN, the IRS will default the tax status of a LLC to “disregarded entity” if the LLC is owned by one person or a married couple in a community property state. Otherwise, the IRS will default the tax status of a LLC to a “partnership” (when it’s owned by more than one person). To change the tax status from the default, you must submit a Tax Election form to the IRS. For the listed fee, L4SB will either file a C-Corp or S-Corp tax election for your LLC.

Every company in the United States is required to submit beneficial ownershp information (BOI) to FinCEN. New companies must submit their initial Beneficial Ownership Information Report (or BOIR) within 90-days (in 2024) or 30-days (in 2025 and after) of forming, and all companies are required to submit an updated BOIR within 30-days after any relevant change to the company or its Beneficial Owners. Only L4SB provides Lawyer Defined™ BOIR Compliance — we help you with your reports, as well as your ongoing BOIR compliance for a small, monthly fee (Note: L4SB must be your Registered Agent to qualify for this service).

Speak with a licensed business attorney to answer your questions or point you in the right direction. Note we are only licensed in a few states, including California, Colorado, Georgia, Illinois, New Mexico, and Texas, so if you have legal question involving local state issues, our advice and guidance may be limited. Consider this option, if you have legal questions involving intellectual property (copyrights, trademarks and patents, and licensing), partnership issues (forming and disputes), contracts, negotiations, acquiring or selling assets (i.e. real property, inventory, businesses, intellectual property, monetary instruments, etc) and more.

What You Need to Start an LLC

Starting an LLC is easy with Law 4 Small Business. You just need three things to get started:

  • A name for your company: We check availability and ensure accuracy at the time of filing.
  • A physical mailing address (not a P.O. box): Check out our Virtual Mail Box service to avoid using your own address.
  • A Registered Agent: Every business needs one, and we would be delighted to serve as your Registered Agent.

LLC’s are an excellent choice for most business owners, and unlike corporate entities (such as S-Corporations or C-Corporations), many states do not require annual or bi-annual reports- making them much simpler to setup and maintain. Due to their simplicity, they are less costly to initially setup.

  1. By forming a specific entity at the state level, it forces the owners to specifically define ownership percentages and powers, which helps reduce the chance of confusion, misunderstanding, and conflict among the owners.
  2. Business entities such as LLC’s can take additional tax exemptions that are unavailable to individuals, such as sole proprietors (health insurance is an example of this).
  3. An LLC shields the owners from most types of personal liability that could occur while conducting business.
  4. An LLC will survive even if the only owner dies. This helps maintain value for family survivors, employees and the estate of the owner.
  5. A formal structure such as a LLC permits the owner to partner with others at different levels of participation, by carefully controlling ownership levels, providing flexibility in how one partners with others.
