How to register an LLC for Medical supplies


When you start a small business, registering the company is one of the first steps. In this guide, we’ll walk you through the process of creating an LLC for medical supplies in your state and then how to open a bank account and obtain insurance coverage.

Decide the best form of business

  • Sole proprietorship
  • Partnership
  • Corporation
  • S Corporation

To decide the best form of business to establish, you’ll need to consider several factors. These include: your business’s expected growth and profitability; whether the members of your LLC will be personally liable for its debts; and whether you will be able to take advantage of specialized tax treatment.

Choose a business name

The first step is to make sure that the name you have chosen doesn’t violate any trademark laws. Before you register your LLC and use the business name, make sure it isn’t too similar to another company’s name or brand. Make sure that no one has already trademarked the words or phrases you are using for your business, either through search engines or through contacting a lawyer in your state.

Complete the required paperwork

  • File the articles of incorporation: This document is filed with your state’s department of corporations, or business services agency. It establishes the LLC as an entity and includes the names and addresses of all members.
  • File a copy of your operating agreement: This document outlines how the LLC will operate and who will have decision-making authority over business matters, among other things.
  • Apply for a federal tax ID number and state EIN (employer identification number): These numbers are required by banks when you open up accounts for your business to accept payments, so it’s important to apply early on in your business development cycle so that you’re ready to go once customers start coming through the doors!
  • Get a license from whatever city or county jurisdiction is relevant within which you’ll be conducting business (e.g., small businesses might not need one if they’re only selling products from home). If there are no requirements in place already then don’t worry; just wait until they do before applying later down the line when it becomes necessary!

Obtain a federal tax ID number

The EIN is similar to a Social Security number in that it provides a unique way to report earnings and taxes online, but unlike SSNs, employers don’t have their own EINs.

If you’re opening a bank account for your business in order to pay employees or subcontractors with direct deposit checks paid out of the savings account, then you’ll need an EIN as well as your name on both accounts to ensure your funds aren’t tied up in limbo while waiting for someone else’s paperwork to clear!

Purchase a liability insurance policy for your business

A liability insurance policy is a coverage that protects you and your business from lawsuits. It pays out if someone files a personal injury or property damage claim against your LLC after an accident, such as slip-and-fall injuries on your premises or car accidents caused by one of your employees.

A typical liability policy covers bodily injury and property damage up to $1 million per occurrence, with no dollar limit for claims filed by the same person (but each claim must be reported separately). The amount of coverage you need depends on how much activity goes on at your facility, but most experts recommend getting at least $1 million in coverage.

If you don’t buy this type of policy on day 1, it’s never too late to call around for quotes—just make sure any potential policies include both general liability and professional indemnity coverage.

Open a bank account for your medical supply company

If your business consists of a single person, it’s unlikely that you’ll need to open a separate bank account for your LLC. Simply use your personal checking and savings accounts instead.

If you do plan to hire employees in the future, however, it may be necessary to have an additional account set up specifically for the LLC. It’s best if this account is held at a local bank so that other employees can easily access it when they need funds from the company. If this isn’t possible—perhaps because there aren’t any banks near where you live—you might consider opening an online checking account with one of the major national banks. These services are free and offer basic banking features like direct deposit and automated bill payments via ACH transfers which will save money on check printing costs over time by reducing paper usage throughout their organization as well as postage expenses since everything from payroll checks to invoices can be sent electronically whenever needed without having any impact on how much paper gets used up per month! This also means less time wasted worrying about whether or not there are enough blank sheets left before starting work again tomorrow morning which could potentially mean more sleep hours left over too!”

Apply for licensing, permits, and additional certifications

These vary by state but can include:

  • A business license or certificate of authority
  • A certificate of occupancy (if you occupy a retail space)

The process of registering an LLC for medical supplies is not too complicated

You can do it yourself or hire a professional to assist you. The process will take several weeks, but if you register in the state of Delaware, it will cost about $300 per year and require only a few pages of paperwork.

The first step is to contact your state’s secretary of state office and ask for their free guidebook on forming an LLC.


Registering a medical supply company is not difficult, but there are several steps to take. You will need to decide which type of business entity you want, obtain the proper paperwork and open a bank account for your company. Once these steps are completed and you’ve obtained your LLC status, you can begin selling products in your state or nationwide!
