How to Get an LLC in Montana in 3 Easy Steps

Updated: Dec 12, 2022

Starting a Montana limited liability company (LLC) can often provide enormous cost-savings for some large purchases because of the state does not charge sales tax on purchases. You don’t have to be a resident of Montana to get a Montana LLC and it isn’t a difficult process—with the right help.

3 Easy Steps to Starting an LLC in Montana

STEP #1: Pick a Name for Your Montana LLC

Step one: choose the name for your LLC. You can pick whatever you like, as long as the name is not already in use. Once you have an idea of what you would like the name of your LLC to be, you can contact LLCTLC and have us verify the name is available. If it is not, we can work with you until you find a name that works.

If you’d like, you can reserve your chosen name for up to 120 days. This is not required as part of the process to set up your LLC, but it’s an option if you want to ensure it’s available when you file. If this is something you want to do, let LLCTLC know and we can file that name for you on a complimentary basis.

STEP #2: Choose a Montana Registered Agent

Designating a registered agent for your LLC is required by law in Montana. Our LLCTLC Montana Registered Agent service can work with you to get your Montana LLC filed with the Montana Secretary of State. With decades of experience, we know all the ins and outs of the procedure, saving you a lot of time and hassle.

As your registered agent,  we’re able to accept legal papers on behalf of your LLC and we can provide the Montana street address you need in order to form your LLC. If you make large purchases through your LLC, such as vehicles, we can also provide the registration addresses needed to get those vehicles registered.

Step #3: Establish an Address for Your Montana LLC

In order to have an LLC in Montana, your registered agent must have a valid street address in the state, which can be a roadblock for some people who are not Montana residents. As your registered agent, we can provide the street address that you need.

If personal privacy is important to you, there are added benefits to using us as your registered agent. With our Montana LLC Privacy packages, we offer a variety of privacy options. In this day and age, many people look for the comfort and security of this kind of privacy protection.

Even if you keep things simple for your Montana LLC, there still may be important mail related to the entity that you don’t want to miss. Our mail forwarding services mean that you don’t have to worry about missing any important documents related to your Montana LLC.
