How do I form a Massachusetts LLC?

Form an LLC in Massachusetts by filing a Certificate of Organization with the Massachusetts Secretary of the Commonwealth. If you mail your filing, the Secretary of the Commonwealth will take about 2-3 business days (plus mail time) to process your Massachusetts limited liability company certificate of organization. If you file online or by fax, they will process your LLC certificate in 1-2 days.

If you file by mail the fee is $500 for a MA LLC (normal processing).

If you file by fax or online the fee is $520 for a MA LLC (expedited processing).
