How to Register an LLC for Precious metals


The United States Department of the Treasury requires that all precious metals businesses must be registered with them. The process to register your LLC is not difficult and can be completed in just a few hours. In this article we will cover:

  • Registering an LLC
  • Getting a Federal Tax ID number as well as a Business bank account.

Talk to a lawyer about your business or LLC

If you’re planning to start an LLC, it’s a good idea to talk to an attorney. An attorney can help you understand the costs, benefits, and legal implications of your business or LLC. Your lawyer will also help ensure that your business complies with all state laws. This is especially important if you want to sell precious metals in other states besides Texas and California.

You should also talk to a tax professional about any tax implications associated with starting an LLC for selling precious metals.

Register your LLC

In order to register your precious metals LLC, you must first file for a new business name with the state. The process is exactly the same as that of filing for a DBA or trade name, meaning that you’ll need to fill out an application and pay the appropriate fees at your county’s office of commerce and industry.

Once this is done, it’ll be time to register your precious metals LLC with the IRS. This requires submitting Form SS-4 (Application for Employer Identification Number). You’ll also have to submit Form 8832 if you’re using an attorney or accountant to represent you; otherwise, there will be no cost associated with registering your new company!

Next up on our list of things that require registration: local government agencies. Most cities will require some type of license before allowing any kind of business operation within their jurisdiction—and this includes precious metal dealerships! So make sure to visit city hall before opening up shop so they can issue one if necessary; otherwise, they might shut down operations until everything gets sorted out later down the road–not good news if things are already running smoothly under budget constraints.

Get a Federal Tax ID

Once you decide on your business name, this is the next step. The Federal Tax ID (EIN) is the nine-digit number assigned by the IRS to companies and organizations in order to keep track of their financial records. It’s also sometimes called a federal tax registration number or an Employer Identification Number. If a business has never had an EIN before, it’ll need to apply for one now.

Set up a business bank account

The type of account you choose will depend on how much money you expect to have in the account and what types of transactions you plan on making. For example, if your LLC is just starting out and doesn’t have much money, it might make sense for it to open an interest-bearing checking account that has few restrictions. On the other hand, if your company is already profitable and handles large amounts of cash regularly, then a business savings account or certificate of deposit (CD) may be more appropriate.

The first step in setting up a new bank account is choosing which institution will be responsible for holding your money. You can research banks online or through friends who work in the industry; pick one based on its payment methods (e-banking vs. paper checks), services offered (mobile apps vs. free ATMs), fees charged per transaction or ATM withdrawal made outside their network; ease of opening an account online versus having someone come out to meet with you in person; etc.

Create an Operating Agreement

An operating agreement is a document that details the function and structure of your LLC. As an owner, you are required to create this document yourself. This can be done in any way you choose, but it is critical that all owners sign it before filing with the state. An operating agreement should include things like:

  • A list of all owners (including their names and addresses)
  • The name and address of your LLC’s registered agent (if you don’t know whom to use, we’ll help you find one)
  • A description of how shares will be distributed among members

Follow local and state laws

You’ll need to make sure that you are following all local and state laws. You should also be aware of the federal laws that apply to your business, as well as any other applicable laws.

These steps will help keep you on track as you register your LLC

Before the official creation of your LLC, you need to take a few steps. First and foremost, it’s important to seek out legal counsel for both the formation of your LLC and its ongoing operations. Your lawyer can help you determine whether this is the right type of business entity for your precious metals trading business and assist with the registration process.

Next, it’s time to get a Federal Tax ID number. You’ll need this number in order to open up a business bank account at one of many different financial institutions that are willing to work with startups and small businesses like yours!

Then create an operating agreement that lays out exactly how profits will be split up among partners as well as other details about how decisions will be made within each party involved with running things behind closed doors.* Be sure this document stays current as circumstances change over time; if not updated regularly enough then nothing will ever change at all!


Once you have completed these steps, you’ll be ready to start selling precious metals in your new LLC. Congratulations on taking this important step!
