How to Form an LLC in Alaska


If you’re in the process of forming a new LLC, you’ve probably come across a lot of information about how to do it. In this article, we’ll explain how to form an Alaska LLC and get your business up and running as quickly and smoothly as possible.

A limited liability company (LLC) offers personal liability protection and some tax advantages. Forming an LLC is a straightforward process in the state of Alaska.

You can form an LLC in Alaska by filing articles of organization with the state. After that, you’ll need to select a name for your new business and file a certificate of formation, which is a document that identifies the members of the company and lists their names, addresses, and positions within it. You’ll also be required to file annual reports each year after your LLC has been formed.

In addition to providing personal liability protection for its owners (known as “members”), an LLC offers some tax advantages over other forms of business entities. In particular, members do not pay income taxes on profits earned by the company through passive investments such as rental properties or royalties from intellectual property rights like trademarks or patents—this gives them more flexibility than corporations when it comes time for making investments outside their core business activities because they don’t necessarily have to worry about losing any tax benefits from passing those revenues through corporate-level tax structures before they reach individuals’ hands again!

Choose a Name for Your Alaska LLC

Once you’ve set up your Alaska LLC, you need to choose a name for it. The name must include the words “limited liability company” or “limited company.” Keep in mind that your business name cannot be identical to another registered business within the state.

A suggested way around this problem is to use a dba (doing business as) name until you’re ready to register under an official LLC name. This can be done by filing with Alaska’s State Corporations Office, which has more information on its website [link].

Appoint a Registered Agent for Your Alaska LLC

A registered agent is a person or business that has been appointed by an LLC to be responsible for the LLC’s legal affairs. If you want to register your Alaska LLC with the state, they will require you to appoint a registered agent in Alaska.

The benefits of appointing a registered agent include:

  • protection against “service of process” lawsuits
  • protection from creditors seeking to reclaim any personal assets owned by your corporation or limited liability company

File Articles of Organization for Your Alaska LLC

Once you have decided to form a Limited Liability Company in Alaska, you need to file Articles of Organization for that LLC. These articles can be filed electronically, by mail or in person. There is a filing fee of $100. The articles must be submitted within 60 days from the date on which your Alaska LLC was formed. Once filed, the Articles of Organization will be entered into the public records of Alaska and made available for inspection at any time during regular business hours at both Division Offices located throughout Alaska..

You should also note that all members must sign their name(s) on every page of these documents before they are submitted to us for filing.

Create an Operating Agreement for Your Alaska LLC

An operating agreement is a contract between the members of an LLC. Operating agreements are not required by law, but they’re highly recommended because they help define the roles and responsibilities of each member, as well as how the business will be run. If you don’t create one, your Alaska LLC will operate under its articles of organization.

Comply with Other Tax and Regulatory Requirements

You must pay annual tax on your company’s gross income, which is the total amount of income you earn from all sources before expenses are deducted. You can either file your own taxes or hire a certified public accountant to do it for you. If you hire an accountant, they will charge by the hour or by the project.

The state of Alaska requires LLCs to file an annual report with them as well as obtaining a business license from their city or town. This means that if you live in Anchorage and form an LLC in Fairbanks, then you will have two separate licenses: one for Anchorage and one for Fairbanks. Each license costs $50 per year (or part thereof). However, some cities may require additional fees depending on how many employees work at your headquarters office location(s). Finally, there may also be state sales tax requirements; however these vary by state so we recommend contacting your local government offices directly before beginning this process!

You must submit a filed certificate of good standing to ensure that your company remains in good standing with the state.

Finally, you must submit a filed certificate of good standing to ensure that your company remains in good standing with the state. This is a legal requirement and can be done online. You’ll need to do this again every year after your LLC has been formed.


After you’ve created your LLC, you must file a certificate of good standing. You can do this online in person or by mail. The state will then send back a certificate that confirms the company is still in good standing with the state.
