Form a South Carolina LLC

Thousands of business owners in South Carolina have been right where you are now—deciding whether or not to form a limited liability company (LLC). An LLC combines features of a corporation with a sole proprietorship or partnership. The primary advantage of an LLC is that it provides members personal liability protection without the formalities of a corporation. An LLC also has the flexibility of being taxed as a corporation or a pass-through entity.

LegalZoom can help you form an LLC for your business. With our easy 3-step process, you can set up your LLC from your home or office for as little as $99 plus state fees.

When you form your South Carolina LLC, you answer a few simple questions online. Most people complete the questionnaire in 15 minutes or less. As a first step in forming your LLC, we check South Carolina's official database to find out whether the name you want for your business is available. We then conduct a Peace of Mind Review™ and file your articles of organization with the South Carolina Secretary of State. Your LLC comes with a personalized operating agreement specific to the state of South Carolina.

Once we receive notice from the South Carolina Secretary of State that your articles of organization have been successfully filed, your South Carolina LLC begins its existence as a legal business entity.
