Do you charge to answer questions about forming or operating LLCs?

When can my LLC start engaging in business and open a bank account?
Your LLC will be born and can start doing business the day we file the Articles of Organization with the Arizona Corporation Commission, which will be the same day you pay us and approve your LLC formation questionnaire. We will email the Articles of Organization to you with the ACC’s filed stamp on. You can take this document to your bank and open a bank account.
When will I get my LLC documents?
On the day you pay us and approve your LLC formation questionnaire we file the Articles of Organization and email that document to you. That day or the next day we mail Silver and Gold purchasers all of their LLC documents in an LLC portfolio.
How will I get my LLC documents?
We will email to the contact person pdf files of their Articles of Organization and Operating Agreement the day we file the Articles with the Arizona Corporation Commission. If you purchase the Silver or Gold package we mail your LLC portfolio with hard copies of your documents to you the day after we file the Articles of Organization.
How does newspaper publication work?
Arizona LLC law requires that if a new LLC statutory agent has an address outside Maricopa or Pima County the LLC must publish a Notice of Publication for three consecutive publications in an Arizona Corporation Commission approved newspaper within 60 days of the date the Articles of Organization were filed. Because we are the statutory agent for all LLCs we form and our address is in Maricopa County publication is not necessary.
What is a Confidential Trust and why would I want one?
The purpose of the Confidential Trust is to keep your name and address off of the Arizona Corporation Commission’s public records so when somebody looks for information about your LLC they will not know you are associated with the company. Arizona LLC law requires that Articles of Organization state the name and address of all: (i) members of a member managed LLC, and (ii) managers and members who own 20% or more of a manager managed LLC. If you want to keep your name off the ACC’s records then you need to purchase our Confidential Trust for $497, which will be the member. If your trust is called the Laguna Beach Trust then that is the member named in the AOO, not you. If you hire us to prepare a Confidential Trust the LLC’s place of business and the Trust’s address in the AOO will be our address so your address will not be disclosed on the public records of the ACC. Our address service is free the first year, but $100/year thereafter. You can change the address at any time to avoid paying the fee. One Confidential Trust is included in the Gold package.
