How can the County Clerk's Office assist in setting up a Limited Liability Company?
The Westchester County Clerk's Office cannot assist you in setting up your Limited Liability Company (LLC) until you have received a Filing Receipt from the New York State Department of State confirming that your Articles of Organization have been accepted for filing. At that point, the role of the Westchester County Clerk is limited to designating the two publications in which you must publish the required notice of formation. Please feel free to download the Designation of Publications from the Westchester County Clerk. However, if you would prefer for us to issue you a hardcopy, please submit a copy of your New York State Department of State Filing Receipt to our office in person or by mail. Our office is located at 110 Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd., Room 330 in White Plains and can be reached by entering through the Richard J. Daronco Courthouse. The office is open Monday through Friday, excluding legal holidays, from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. If you would prefer to submit a copy of the Filing Receipt by mail, please include a self-addressed stamped envelope. After publication has occurred, a Certificate of Publication, with affidavits of publication from each of the newspapers, must be submitted to the Department of State for filing with the required fee. For information on setting up an LLC or filing a Certificate of Publication, please visit the New York State Department of State, Division of Corporations website.
