New Hampshire Articles of Organization Filing Instructions:  A New Hampshire limited liability company is formed by filing a Certificate of Formation and Form SRA with the New Hampshire Department of State and paying a fee of $100. The form must be completed in ink; pencil or erasable ink is not acceptable. A one inch margin must be maintained and the pages cannot be double-sided.
The Certificate of Formation must include Form SRA – “Addendum to Business Organization and Registration Forms – Statement of Compliance with New Hampshire Securities Laws.” This form is required for all businesses being formed or registering in the state of New Hampshire. New Hampshire law requires that before an application for business registration is accepted, the limited liability company must provide a statement that its business has complied with the state’s securities law.
