FAQs on how to determine Oklahoma LLC costs

  • These are the possible fees you’ll need to pay to start your own LLC in Oklahoma:

    Oklahoma LLC Filing Fee – $104

    The filing fee for the Oklahoma LLC Articles of Organization is $104.

    Name Reservation Fee – $10

    If you need to reserve your LLC’s name prior to filing the Articles of Organization, it will cost $10 to file.

    Annual Certificate – $25

    Oklahoma LLCs are also required to file an Annual Certificate each year, the fee for which is $25.

    Registered Agent Fee – Free

    Any owner or employee of a business can be its own registered agent in Oklahoma as long as they are over the age of 18, and have a street address in Oklahoma. But if you don’t want to have to deal with the tasks of being a registered agent, many businesses hire a registered agent for a small yearly fee. We can help you find the right Registered Agent for your LLC with our Oklahoma Registered Agent Service.

  • There could be costs to look out for when you’re running an LLC, other than paying for the Articles of Organization, Name Reservation, and Annual Certificate.

    Amended Articles of Organization

    An Amended Articles of Organization is required if you decide to change some aspect of the organization of your LLC. The filing fee is $50 and can be done online.

    Resignation of Registered Agent

    A Resignation of Registered Agent form needs to be filed when your LLC changes who the required registered agent will be. The filing fee is $25 and can be done online.

    DBA Name in Oklahoma

    A “Doing Business As” name or DBA is any name your business uses that’s different from its official name. In Oklahoma, a DBA is called a Trade Name. To secure an Oklahoma Trade Name, you have to file a Trade Name Report, which will cost $25. Trade names or DBAs are a good way to market different types of products or business locations without the need to change your original LLC’s name.

    Foreign LLC

    Foreign LLCs are out of state businesses that want to register in Oklahoma. To run your out-of-state LLC in Oklahoma, you need to file a Registration of Foreign Limited Liability Company form with the Oklahoma Secretary of State. The filing fee for this document is $300.

    Business Licensing

    You might also have to pay fees for the following depending upon what type of business you’re starting:

    • Business licenses
    • Permits
    • Registrations

    Depending upon your business, you need to know whether there are licenses, permits, and registrations at the local, state, and federal levels. With our partners at Avalara, we can give you a Business License Report that breaks down what specific licenses, permits, and registrations your business needs.

  • In Oklahoma, your LLC won’t have to pay any penalties for failure to pay a fee on time. However, if you miss a payment, your LLC will eventually lose its good standing to do business within the state.

  • If you can’t pay your filing fees to the Oklahoma Secretary of State, then your application for your LLC will be rejected, and you won’t be able to legally transact business within the state as an LLC. Without these documents, your LLC is not official, and you would face the increased liability of running a sole proprietorship or general partnership.

  • You pay your filing fees to the Oklahoma Secretary of State.

  • The largest fee you will pay during the start-up process in creating your LLC will be the Articles of Organization filing fee of $100. Once your LLC is established, there may be larger fees and expenses you have to pay for permits, licenses, and registrations you will need based on the kind of business you run, your business location, and your business’s needs. 

  • If you use Oklahoma’s easy and convenient online filing system, you can pay whatever necessary filing fees by a credit or debit card. If you are filing the forms by mail, you will need a check or money order to be submitted along with the forms.
