LLC Formation - the best and cheapest state?
As we often learn, the best and the cheapest do not always walk hand in hand.
That being said, by most business principles, states such as Wyoming, Delaware and Nevada - commonly referred to as 'The Corporate Heavens' - are considered the most favorable to register in, due to those states' business-friendly atmospheres. (You can compare these states by clicking the highlighted state names).
Regarding initial set-up costs, states such as Kentucky, Michigan, Colorado and Iowa are among the least costly to register using the state minimum requirements.
Keep in mind, if you have a business which operates using a physical brick-and-mortar location, such as a warehouse or office, or if you have any property or employees, the company would need to be registered in the state(s) where those are located.
