How to Register an LLC for Scientific Devices


Creating an LLC for scientific devices can be a complicated process, but it’s not impossible. It’s important to follow the steps outlined below so you understand what you need to do in order to register your new business with the state and federal government.

Request a name search

Before you register your LLC, you’ll need to request a name search from the Office of the Secretary of State (OSC) in order to ensure that no other person or business is using your company’s desired name. The process is simple and only costs $10, which can be paid online or with cash, check, or money order made payable to the “Office of the Secretary of State” at any OSC branch office location.

The OSC will also provide you with information on how many other businesses are registered under similar names as well as their addresses and contact information if applicable.

Form an application for registration at the Office of the Secretary of the State

  • Fill out the application with your personal information and business information
  • Pay the fee of $80 to register your LLC with the Secretary of State
  • Take receipt of your application

Create an Operating Agreement for the LLC

  • An operating agreement is a contract between the members of a limited liability company (LLC). A member can be an individual or another business and may be referred to as a member or manager depending on the state in which you incorporate your LLC. The operating agreement will cover important aspects of how your business will operate, including its structure and rules for making decisions; how profits and losses are shared; what happens if someone leaves the organization; and provisions for dissolving the LLC when it no longer makes sense as a separate legal entity.
  • Signing parties’ requirements. Each member must sign this document in order to form their own interests in the business — without all signatures entered into evidence with your state secretary by filing fee payment, you won’t get approval from them either!

Register for federal and state tax IDs using the IRS website

The first step in registering your LLC is to obtain a tax ID. A tax ID is an identification number that the IRS assigns to all businesses, corporations, and organizations subject to federal income tax. This number allows you to file taxes as a business entity separate from the individuals who own it.

The federal government requires that any business with more than one owner has at least one employee (you) and conducts financial transactions with other entities (such as vendors or customers). In order for you or your company’s employees to receive their W-2 forms at year’s end, you’ll need to register for both state and federal tax IDs using the IRS website.

A federal employer identification number (EIN) can be used instead of a social security number when filing taxes with the IRS—so if you don’t have one yet but plan on hiring employees soon or opening an office location somewhere else besides where you reside now, then we’d recommend getting this taken care of sooner rather than later so no problems to arise.

Submit Business License Applications to local, state, and Federal Agencies

This can be done at the state level, the federal level, and locally. Your Local County or city may require a separate business license application, but this is not always true. The following is a general outline of what you need to do:

  • Register with your state’s secretary of state (usually through an online portal).
  • Register with the IRS under Section 338(h) (10) of Title 26 if you want to deduct research and development costs from gross income when filing taxes (this requires specific documentation from a qualified tax professional; we recommend talking with us about how we can help).

These five steps help you form your own LLC

The first step is to request a name search from the Office of the Secretary of the State (OSC). You must do this before you can file any business license applications, so it’s important to do it as soon as possible. The OSC will let you know if there is any conflict with another LLC or corporation using your desired name in your state. If there is no conflict, then go ahead and proceed with filing for an LLC!

Once you have received approval on your company’s name search results, set up an organizational meeting between all members of your team that will be involved in running the LLC—this includes owners and managers alike—to discuss how they want things done moving forward; this way everyone should know what their roles are going into starting out with their new venture together! It’s also important during this stage because it helps establish clear lines between who has authority over what parts of running a business operationally speaking; this prevents confusion later down the road when things get busy at work with day-to-day activities like answering customer questions about products being sold online via e-commerce sites.


You can now register your LLC. You should also check with the state and local government to see which licenses and permits you need for your business.
