How to Form an LLC in Nebraska


You’ve got a great idea, and you’re ready to start your own business. But before you register your business with the state of Nebraska, the first thing you need to do is form an LLC. In this article, we’ll walk through each step of how to form an LLC in Nebraska so that you can get started on your new business even faster!

Step 1: Choose a business structure

The first step in forming an LLC is deciding which business structure you want to use. There are four types of business structures available to you:

  • LLC—Limited liability companies are the most common type of entity used in Nebraska, and they’re also the easiest type of business structure to set up. An LLC provides limited liability protection for its owners and members on their personal assets (such as homes or cars) but not on company property, such as computers or equipment owned by the company itself.
  • C-corporation—A C-corporation is a separate legal entity from its owners, who are called shareholders. It pays taxes using Form 1120 every year after reporting its profits or losses on Schedule K-1. All profits earned by a corporation must be distributed among shareholders annually unless they reinvest them into the company’s operations instead.
  • S-corporation—An S corporation combines features of both partnerships and corporations while avoiding some of their drawbacks; like partnerships, S corporations pass through income taxes directly onto shareholders rather than paying them at corporate levels first before distributing them out again between partners’ individual tax returns later on down the line through Form K-1 statements sent out each quarter throughout each year just like C-Corps do when filing their own annual returns too! But unlike either partnership or corporations with stockholders involved (which means there would’ve been two sets of double taxation coming from having both parties involved), since these entities don’t issue stock certificates per se yet still function similarly enough where one person owns all rights over everything within that organization including contracts entered into outside agreements made with other firms/businesses outside investment opportunities made available only within this private market place where entrepreneurs trade shares back n forth amongst themselves without having any outside interference whatsoever!

Step 2: Register with the Nebraska Department of Revenue

  • Register With the Nebraska Department of Revenue

Registering with your local county clerk is just one step in forming an LLC in Nebraska. You’ll also need to register with the Nebraska Department of Revenue, which you can do online or via mail. The process will require you to fill out a form, submit it along with $50 and wait for confirmation that your registration has been processed (which usually takes about two weeks).

Step 3: Choose a name for your LLC

Once you’ve decided on a business name and filed for your LLC in Nebraska, it’s time to check that the name is available. To do this, go to the Nebraska Secretary of State website and click “Search for Name Availability” under “Quick Links.” In the section marked “Type,” select “Limited Liability Company.” Enter your proposed name into the search box; if it appears as a result, congratulations! If not, there may be another business with an exact or similar-sounding name that has already registered theirs in Nebraska; choose another one.

If you cannot find any names that meet these requirements or have other concerns about picking a good one (like having it too long or too short), feel free to contact us at [email protected]

Step 4: Appoint a registered agent

Once you have filed your Articles of Organization to form an LLC, the next step is to appoint a registered agent. A registered agent is an individual or business that handles communications with state authorities on behalf of your company. The Nebraska Secretary of State provides a list of qualified individuals and businesses who will act as your registered agents for $10 per year. In addition to receiving important notices from the government, these documents also include legal notices like lawsuits against your business and foreclosure actions.

The best way to appoint a new registered agent is by filing Form UPLB-1 or Appointment of Registered Agent With Change in Name or Address (Form UPLB-1). You can download this form here: This form must be notarized and mailed back to them before it becomes official (it usually takes 2-3 weeks). If you want someone else to serve as your technical contact person for all correspondence (such as if you’re planning on going out of state), then fill out both forms above at once!

You can change an existing registration by completing Form UPLB-2A, which replaces the previous one entirely—so don’t forget about those old ones when updating information!

Step 5: File the Articles of Organization with the Secretary of State

You’re almost done! The next step is to file your Articles of Organization with the Secretary of State.

  • Fill out and sign the Articles of Organization form. Make sure you include your LLC’s name, address and telephone number.
  • Pay the filing fee. The amount varies depending on how many members there are in your LLC, but it will be between $50 and $500 (there’s a discount if you pay more than one year in advance).
  • Send both forms back to the Secretary of State: they’ll file them and send you confirmation that they’ve been accepted.

Forming an LLC in Nebraska is a simple process.

To form an LLC in Nebraska, you can:

  • You can use the online services provided by the Nebraska Secretary of State’s office. Online methods include filing a completed application along with your payment to file your articles of organization and appointing a registered agent for service of process (the person who will accept legal notices on behalf of the company).
  • By mail. You can download and complete a Form U5-A, Certificate of Assumed Name; then send it to the Nebraska Secretary of State together with a filing fee payment by check or money order made payable to “Secretary of State.”
  • In person at any United States Post Office—you’ll need to bring cash or a check or money order made out to “Treasurer” if filing by mail is not an option for some reason; this option does not require tax payments during formation or annual renewal processes after formation has taken place


The process of forming an LLC in Nebraska is simple and can be completed by anyone. You don’t need to be a lawyer or accountant, just someone who wants to start their own business. The state government offers many resources that will help you through this process, so if you have any questions about what we covered here today, feel free to contact them!
