Arizona LLC Filing Fees

In Arizona, the filing fees associated with an Arizona Llimited liability company, or Arizona LLC, are set by Arizona's Corporation Commission in conjunction with the fees listed in Arizona's LLC Act, specifically A.R.S. § 29-851.

A. The commission shall collect and deposit, pursuant to sections 35-146 and 35-147, the following nonrefundable fees when the following documents are delivered to the commission:

1. The initial articles of organization, fifty dollars.

2. An application for registration of a foreign limited liability company, one hundred fifty dollars.

3. An amendment to the articles of organization, twenty-five dollars.

4. Articles of termination and a certificate of termination, thirty-five dollars.

5. A certificate for any purpose not otherwise provided for, ten dollars.

6. Articles of merger, fifty dollars.

7. Written information on any limited liability company, ten dollars.

8. A copy of any document or instrument, five dollars plus fifty cents per page.

9. An application for reservation of a name or for filing a notice of the transfer or cancellation of any name reservation, ten dollars.

10. Five dollars for a statement of change of address of one or more of the following:

(a) Known place of business.

(b) Statutory agent.

(c) Manager.

(d) Member.

11. Any service of notice, demand or process on the commission as resident agent of a limited liability company, twenty-five dollars. This amount may be recovered as taxable costs by the party to the suit, action or proceeding causing the service to be made if the party prevails in the suit, action or proceeding.

12. Articles of correction, the fee prescribed in section 10-122, subsection A, paragraph 18.

13. Application for reinstatement following administrative dissolution, in addition to other fees and penalties due, the fee prescribed in section 10-122, subsection A, paragraph 14.

Regarding expedited LLC processing:

B. The commission shall provide for and establish an expedited service for the filing of all documents and services provided pursuant to this chapter as follows:

1. The expedited filing shall be a priority service to be completed as soon as possible after the documents are delivered to the commission.

2. In addition to any other fees required by this section or any other law, the commission shall charge a nonrefundable fee for expedited services, including those requested by fax. The fee shall be determined by a supermajority vote of the commissioners.

Currently, the Corporation Commission charges $85 for expedited processing of Arizona LLC articles of organization, which is $35 more than regular processing. This same $35 premium generally applies to expedited processing of other LLC and LLC-related filings.

In regard to same-day and next-day service(s):

C. The commission may provide for and establish same day and next day services for the filing of any documents and services provided pursuant to this chapter as follows:

1. The commission shall suspend same day or next day service if the commission determines that it does not have the necessary resources to perform the service within the established time period.

2. In addition to any other fees required by this section or any other law, the commissioners may charge a nonrefundable fee for the same day or next day service or both. The fee shall be determined by a supermajority vote of the commissioners.

Currently, the Corporation Commission does not offer same-day and next-day filling option of LLC articles of organization.

This brief overview of some important considerations associated with Arizona LLC filing fees is by no means comprehensive. Always seek the advice of a competent professional when making important legal decisions.
