What are the New York Publication Requirements for a Limited Liability Company.
The laws of the State of New York mandate provisions regarding the publication required when a new LLC is filed or authorization of domestic and foreign limited liability companies, limited partnerships and limited liability. The statutory provisions which affect your new business entity should be consulted prior to publishing.
Publication must be done once a week for six successive weeks in two newspapers in the county in which the office of the limited liability entity is located. One newspaper must be a daily and the other weekly newspaper. Each newspaper must be designated by the county clerk in the county listed on the articles of formation.
At the end of the six weeks of publishing the publisher of each newspaper will provide you with an Affidavit of Publication. Then a Certificate of Publication, with the Affidavits of Publication attached, must be filed with the Department of State, Division of Corporations, One Commerce Plaza, 99 Washington Avenue, Suite 600, Albany, NY 12231. The fee for filing the Certificate of Publication is $50 Limited liability entities that are formed or authorized to do business in New York after June 1, 2006, which fail to comply with the publication requirements within 120 days after their formation or qualification will have their authority to carry on, conduct or transact any business suspended.
Note that at any time following the suspension of a limited liability entity’s authority to carry on, conduct or transact business, the limited liability entity may file the certificate of publication with the affidavits of publication of the newspapers annexed thereto, at which time the suspension of such limited liability entity’s authority to carry on, conduct or transact business shall be annulled.
