The Arizona Corporation Commission (ACC) is celebrating the one-year anniversary of its e-filing service for new businesses that want to form as limited liability companies LLCs.
Businesses choosing to form as an LLC had to file the articles of organization by mail or in person prior to September 2015.
“The faster businesses can submit their paperwork, the faster they are in business,” ACC Chairman Doug Little said. “This service (e-filing) helps reinforce that Arizona is a business friendly state that values the contributions of small businesses to our economy.”
Over the past year, more than 74,000 businesses filed for LLC status in the state. Nearly half — 44 percent —were formed with the online filing option, which also presents less opportunity for error.
