How to File Indiana LLC Articles of Organization
A lot goes into the conception and planning of a new business. It is the Articles of Organization that make the LLC official. Being prepared before sitting down to complete the application will help you finish it efficiently.
First, have all of the required information handy. You will be asked for the following information:
- Name and address of the Indiana LLC
- Name, address, and email address of the registered agent
- Date of dissolution (if applicable)
- The name(s) and signature(s) of the organizer(s)
Second, the cost of filing the Articles of Organization is $97.14 (online) or $100 (hard copy), so have a credit card or check ready to go.
Finally, processing time varies depending on which option you choose. If you’re in a hurry, consider the online option which will process within an hour. Standard processing (hardcopy) will take three to five business days.
When filing the Articles of Organization, use one of the three methods below.

Want Help Filing Your Articles of Organization?
If you decide to use your time building your business rather than completing paperwork, but don’t want to spend the money on an attorney, an LLC creation service is a great compromise.
Lots of online incorporation services are out there but do vary in perks offered, processing times (theirs, not the state’s), and price.
In general, a service will collect and review your information, prepare the documents, and send them to the Indiana Secretary of State Business Services Division. They will contact you when the Articles of Organization have been filed.
One additional benefit offered by some services is a free year of registered agent service. Others offer order tracking or notifications of future legal requirements needed with the state.
After reviewing all the top LLC services available, we found IncFile and Northwest Registered Agent the best overall options. While neither of them have as high brand power as the industry giant, LegalZoom, both services have great customer support, prices and offer a free registered agent.
