By

Definition:

Certificate of Organization for LLC

A Certificate of Organization is a new type of document filed with the secretary of state in some states to form a limited liability company (LLC). This form replaces the Articles of Organization in several states (currently Iowa and Idaho).

The required information to be included in the Certificate of Organization is:

  • The name of the limited liability company, within the requirements of the state
  • The name and address of the Registered Agent
  • The address of the registered office (formerly, the principal office).

No other information is required for the Certificate of Organization. This certificate should be mailed to the office of the secretary of state, along with a check for the appropriate filing fee.

Common Misspellings: Not the same as Articles of Organization.
