Information about Colorado LLC
The entity name must contain the term “Limited Liability Company”, “Ltd. Liability Company”, “Limited Liability Co.”, or “Ltd. Liability Co.” or the abbreviation “LLC” or “L.L.C.”
An LLC’s name must be distinguishable and different from the names of already existing businesses registered in Colorado or foreign corporations authorized to transact business in Colorado.
Registered office address must be located in Colorado. Our fee includes Colorado registered office address and registered agent for the first year.
Principal office address (business address) of the Colorado corporation may be in any country.
A minimum of one member is required. Residents of any country, individuals and legal entities may become a member.
Management of an LLC can be governed by its member(s) or by elected manager(s). If the Articles of Organization states that management of the LLC is vested in a manager(s), a minimum one manager is required.
Managers do not need to be members of the LLC. Residents of any country individuals and legal entities may become managers of a Colorado LLC. A manager who is an individual must be eighteen years of age or older.
Managers may be designated and removed by the consent of a majority of its members.
Therefore, non-US residents are not liable for any US income taxes, when their LLC conducts business outside of US. If a US LLC trades with US companies from outside of US, such LLC does not conduct business in US. Only presence of a permanent establishment of the LLC in US, such as offices, warehouses, etc, allows classifying such LLC as a LLC conducting business in US.
Despite of this fact that LLCs are non-taxable entities, under some conditions LLC needs to file annual income tax return with US tax authorities.
No income tax return is required if:
- LLC conducting a trade or business outside of the United States, and
- All LLC’s members are non-US residents for income tax purposes.
An LLC is required to file a federal income tax return with IRS if:
- LLC conducting business in US, and
- LLC has two or more members.
All foreigners/non-residents who own a US LLC must file a 5472 US tax return with the IRS for disclosure purposes even if you do not owe tax in the US.
LLCs must file annual periodic reports to the state. The due date of this report is determined by when you initially formed the company. If the LLC was formed in July, the report will be due every July. Our company will send you reminders and have this report filed for you as it will be included in our annual renewal fee.
The Articles of Organization includes name and address of the persons forming the LLC and causing the document to be delivered for filing, and principal office address (business address) of the LLC.
When filing the annual income tax return for a LLC, members’ names must be listed.
LLC is required to keep in its principal place of business, which may be located in any country, the following documents:
- List of all its members and managers
- A copy of the articles of organization
- Copies of LLC’s income tax returns (if any) for the 3 most recent years
- Copy of the Operating Agreement
- Financial statements of the limited liability company for the 3 most recent years
There is no audit requirement for a Colorado LLC.
Formation of a Colorado LLC takes 1 business hour. Preparation of all internal documents may take additional couple of hours. When Apostille legalization is required, it usually takes 2 to 6 business days.
