We have discussed the benefits of incorporating a business in Arizona (read more about the benefits here), including the business-friendly climate.

Learn about forming an LLC in Arizona
According to Arizona law, the name of an LLC in Arizona must contain the words “Limited Liability Company” or the abbreviations “LLC,” “L.L.C”, “L.C.,” or “LC.” A professional LLC’s name must contain the words “professional limited liability company” or the abbreviations “P.L.L.C.,” “P.L.C.,” “PLLC,” or “PLC.” As is generally the case, the LLC’s name must be distinguishable from the names of other business entities already on file with the Arizona Corporations Commission.
Attorneys Corporation Service, Inc. can run a quick and accurate business name availability check for you, letting you know if your client’s desired name is available before you start filling out the paperwork. Let us take care of both the LLC name availability check and/or the name reservation for you, should you want to place a name on hold for up to 120 days.
An Arizona LLC is created by filing the Articles of Organization with the Arizona Corporation Commission.
The articles must include
- The LLC’s name and address;
- The LLC’s duration;
- The names and addresses of the LLC’s mangers or members;
- The name, address, and signature of the LLC’s registered agent.

Attorneys Corporation Service, Inc.’s convenient Draft N’ File service allows you to save time and paperwork by drafting and filing the articles on your behalf. Either way, we will immediately let you know when your Articles of Organization have been accepted by the Secretary of State.
When forming an LLC in Arizona you must also have an agent for service of process in the state. The agent should agree to accept service of process on behalf of the limited liability company prior to designation. The registered agent may be an individual who is a full-time resident of Arizona or a business entity registered with the Arizona Corporation Commission. Attorneys Corporation Service, Inc. can provide you with a Registered Agent in Arizona for $99 per year.
Lastly, within sixty days after the Commission has approved the filing of your client’s Articles of Organization, you must publish, for 2 consecutive publications, the Articles in a newspaper of general circulation in the Arizona county where the LLC will be doing business. A list of acceptable newspapers in each county is posted on the Arizona Corporation Commission website. The LLC may be subject to dissolution if it fails to publish.
