Why Form a Limited Liability Company (LLC)?

$0 + state fee & first year free Registered Agent.

Setting up an LLC in Utah

Located in the western United States, Utah is home to more than 3 million people. Bordered by Wyoming, Arizona, Nevada, Colorado and Idaho and sharing a corner with New Mexico, the state is ideally located as a transportation hub.

Utah has long been home to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and Mormons comprise just over 60 percent of the state’s population. Mormons have a huge influence on culture, education and business.

A place of great natural beauty, outdoor tourism is a major contributor to Utah’s economy. Technology, research, transportation, education, mining and government services are the other major sectors in the region.

If you want to start your own business in Utah, one of the best ways to do so is by forming a Utah LLC. Limited liability companies (LLCs) are a business entity designed for startups and small- and medium-sized businesses. Utah LLCs give you many of the protections and advantages of larger corporations without all the rules, regulations and compliance issues common to larger business entities.

Briefly, the benefits of starting a Utah LLC include:

  • Separating and limiting your personal liability from your business liability and debts
  • Quick and simple filing, management, compliance, regulation and administration of your Utah LLC
  • Easy tax filing and potential advantages for tax treatment
