FAQs on how to determine Oregon LLC costs

  • How much it costs to start an LLC in Oregon:

    Oregon LLC Filing Fee – $100

    The Oregon LLC filing fee is $100. When you file your Articles of Organization you will have to submit the fee.

    Annual Report Fee – $100

    The annual report filing fee for an Oregon LLC is $100 per year when paid directly to the State of Oregon. It is due on the LLC’s creation anniversary date.

    Registered Agent Fee – Free

    Every Oregon LLC is required to have a registered agent, but it could even be yourself if you choose. If you do it yourself, there will be no fee.

    With our registered agent services, we can easily get you set up with your own registered agent and handle any requirements without any extra work or worry from you.

  • Now that your Oregon LLC is now official and paid for, there are other fees to look out for.

    Oregon Certificate of Good Standing

    If you need to demonstrate to someone that your company exists and is in good standing with the state of Oregon, such as a bank or other lender, then you would request this certificate. It costs $10.

    DBA Name in Oregon

    If you want to use a different name to market a new product, service, or business location, then using a DBA or “doing business as” name registration is the way to go. In Oregon, a DBA is called an Assumed Business Name, and it will cost $50. Using an assumed business name is easy, and it saves you from having to change or original LLC’s name.

    Foreign LLC

    If you already have an LLC in another state but want to expand your business to Oregon, then you need to file an Application for Authority. Doing so registers the business as a foreign entity and eliminates the need to incorporate a new entity..

    The cost to file a foreign LLC in Oregon is $275.

    Business Licenses and Permits

    Your company may need different licenses and permits at the federal, state, or local level to legally open your doors in Oregon. The number of these licenses and permits, and their total cost, will depend upon the type of business you run.

  • If you can’t pay the fee for whatever form you’re filing, then the Oregon Secretary of State’s office will not accept it.

  • The state of Oregon will receive your fees through the Secretary of State’s office.

  • The biggest fee you’ll see when starting your company will be the $100 filing fee for the Articles of Organization.
