Form an Alaska domestic LLC, in accordance with Statute 10.50.075, which is the most common type of entity formed in the State. The entity is described as a standard business (for-profit) that will be located in Alaska including the principal office location. The filing fee is $250, whether it is filed via the PDF Application (Form 08-484) or Online (at This Webpage), and will take approximately 10 to 15 business days for the State to complete the formation.

Initial Report – After the incorporator submits the articles of organization they will be required to submit the Initial Report which can be processed online (at This Webpage) and with no fee.

How to Form

Step 1 – The individual that is seeking to incorporate should first think of a name for their company. After a name has been selected they should enter it into the Alaska Business Search Page so that they can see if there are any duplicate names like theirs, or if there are any very similar names. If so, the applicant will have to think of a new name and enter until they receive no results that come close to the name that they suggested.

Step 2 – The applicant has the choice of either filing the application online or through the paper application (Articles of Organization). In either case, the fee will be $250 so it is recommended, and for a faster filing, that the online route is pursued.
