How does newspaper publication work?
Arizona LLC law requires that if a new LLC has an office outside Maricopa or Pima County the LLC must publish a Notice of Publication for three consecutive publications in an Arizona Corporation Commission approved newspaper within 60 days of the date the ACC approves the Articles of Organization. All the LLCs we form will have an office in Maricopa County or Pima County so publication is not necessary. If your LLC’s office is outside Maricopa or Pima County we will use our address for the LLC’s address to avoid the publication requirement.
What is a Confidential Trust and why would I want one?
The purpose of the Confidential Trust is to keep your name and address off of the Arizona Corporation Commission’s public records so when somebody looks for information about your LLC they will not know you are associated with the company. Arizona LLC law requires that Articles of Organization state the name and address of all: (i) members of a member managed LLC, and (ii) managers and members who own 20% or more of a manager managed LLC. If you want to keep your name off the ACC’s records then you need to purchase our Confidential Trust for $497, which will be the member. If your trust is called the Laguna Beach Trust then that is the member named in the AOO, not you. If you hire us to prepare a Confidential Trust the LLC’s place of business and the Trust’s address in the AOO will be our address so your address will not be disclosed on the public records of the ACC. Our address service is free the first year, but $100/year thereafter. You can change the address at any time to avoid paying the fee. One Confidential Trust is included in the Gold package.
