This week’s 50 States series is brought to you by one of the most famous beef, pork, corn and soybean producers in America… none other than Nebraska! Today we’re taking a look at what it means to incorporate in Nebraska.
Nebraska has a population of about 1,860,500 residents and is the 9th least densely populated out of the states. Famous for its intense seasons (for which thunderstorms and tornadoes are quite common), the state also has a prominent agriculture sector. Outside of beef and pork, Nebraska is noted for its freight transport, manufacturing, and insurance sectors as well. And companies like ConAgra, TD Ameritrade, and InfoUSA also call the state home to their headquarters.
As far as starting a business goes, Nebraska is actually a pretty great place to start a business. On the Forbes list of “Best Places to Start a Business” it’s ranked at number six of the 50 states, and on Thumbtack.com, it received a B grade. These scores can likely be attributed to the state’s positive rankings in business costs, economic climate, quality of life, and college attainment. Nebraska also received A+s in regulations, health and safety, employment, tax code, licensing, and training programs.
Deciding to brave the recent cold weather and make the jump to form an LLC or incorporate in Nebraska? Here are some LLC-specific notes to keep in mind:
- Nebraska doesn’t actually have an official form for the Certificates of Organization, but you still need to include the name of your LLC on all of the certificates, as well as the name and address of your registered agent.
- Your registered agent can be either a company that can legally practice business in Nebraska, or a citizen of Nebraska. Both options need to include the physical address on all necessary paperwork.
- If ever you decide to provide some sort of professional service, your business will also need to include the type of service the members, managers, and/or organizers are licensed to provide.
- LLCs in Nebraska must include one of the following terms somewhere in their business name: limited liability company, limited company, L.L.C., LLC, L.C., or LC. You can also abbreviate limited to Ltd. and company as Co.
