Texas LLC Formation Timeline
How long does it take to form a Texas LLC?
1. We Receive Your Information
2. Same Day E-Filing
3. Texas Secretary of State (TXSOS) Review
4. TXSOS Approval
Helpful Tip: Call the TXSOS Name Availability Hotline (512-463-5555) to check and see if your desired name is available. The TXSOS can tell you whether or not they will allow or reject the filing. By getting your desired name pre-cleared, you eliminate the risk of having a delay due to a rejected filing. You will be on hold for about 10 minutes, so we recommend having multiple names ready to ask about in case the first choice is not viable.
5. Optional Paperwork
Once we receive the confirmation email from the TXSOS indicating that the filing was approved and thus the business is live, we will complete the following tasks to complete your order (depending on what package you selected):
- 5a. Prepare Remaining Documentation: All business formation packages except for the Bronze package include a Company Agreement and organizational meeting documentation. We will finalize these documents on the same day we receive the TXSOS confirmation email. All documents will be compiled into one PDF and emailed to you as soon as they are finalized.
- 5b. Apply Online for the EIN: If you paid us to obtain your Federal Employer Identification Number (EIN), we will complete the online EIN application the day we receive the TXSOS confirmation email. The online EIN application allows us to get your EIN instantly. In rare cases, we will have to fax file the EIN application (Form SS-4) which will result in an EIN in about 1 week.
- 5c. Order Your Company Book: Gold and Platinum packages include a company book (a nice binder). The company book is custom made with the name of the LLC engraved on it. The company book will arrive at our office about a week after ordering. We’ll compile all of the documents and ship to you via priority mail on the day after we receive the book from the manufacturer. You will have already received these same documents via email on the same day we receive the TXSOS confirmation.
