Pay the filing fee.

The filing fee to publish your LLC in New York is $50. This must be paid when you submit your Articles of Organization to the Division of Corporations. You can pay by check or money order. The check should be made out to the “Department of State.”

Include a cover letter with your Articles of Organization that includes the following information:
-Your LLC’s name and address
-The name and address of the person who will be handling your publication
-The name and address of the newspaper where you will be publishing your notice
-The date you would like your publication to start
-Your LLC’s entity number

Wait for your LLC to be approved.

You will receive a filing notice from the New York Department of State once your LLC has been approved. This notice will provide instructions on how to publish your LLC in two New York newspapers. You must publish your LLC in these newspapers as a way of providing notice to the public that your LLC exists and is authorized to do business in New York.

Once your LLC is approved, you will receive a Certificate of Organization.

Now that your LLC has been approved, you need to publish it in order to do business in New York. This is a legal requirement in New York, and it ensures that the public is aware of your business and can hold you accountable if something goes wrong.

There are two ways to go about publishing your LLC: online and in print. We recommend doing both, as online publications are more likely to be seen by potential customers or partners, while print publications are more likely to be seen by government officials or regulators.

  How Much Does it Cost to Start a Business?

The easiest way to publish your LLC is online. You can do this through the New York Department of State website or through a commercial publication service.

To publish on the Department of State website, you’ll need to fill out a form and pay a $50 fee. The form must be notarized, and you’ll need to include a copy of your Certificate of Organization. Once you submit the form, your LLC will be published within five business days.

If you choose to use a commercial publication service, they will handle all of the details for you for a fee. This can be helpful if you’re not familiar with the process or if you want someone else to handle it for you. However, it’s important to make sure that you use a reputable service so that your publication is valid.

In print
You’ll also need to publish your LLC in two newspapers: one general circulation newspaper and one legal newspaper. You can find a list of approved general circulation newspapers on the Department of State website. For legal newspapers, we recommend using The New York Law Journal or The Commercial Observer.

You’ll need to submit an affidavit to the newspaper with your LLC information, as well as a notice that includes the name and address of your LLC, the date of formation, and the name and address of your registered agent. The notice must run for six consecutive weeks, and you’ll need to submit proof of publication (usually in the form of an affidavit from the newspaper) to the Department of State once it’s complete.
