Texas LLC Search

What is an LLC?

A limited liability company (LLC) is a business structure in the United States whereby the owners are not personally liable for the company's debts or liabilities. Limited liability companies are hybrid entities that combine the characteristics of a corporation with those of a partnership or sole proprietorship.

Reasons to Search for an LLC?

There are times when you need to know the owner of an LLC or you simply want to learn more about an LLC before doing business with them. Here are a few examples of reasons to search for an LLC:

  • Want to file a lawsuit against an LLC
  • Learn more about an LLC
  • Find out ownership of an LLC
  • Searching for Name availability for Your LLC
  • Hiring an LLC to provide a service
  • Find out in the LLC is a reputable company
  • See the creditworthiness of the LLC

There are multiple reasons you may want to search for an LLC. Remember, that many LLC owners don’t want to be found and do not want their company information made public.

What Information is available for Search

If you search for an LLC correctly on the Secretary of State website, you should find information such as:

  • If the LLC is active or inactive
  • How it was formed
  • The date of registration
  • Information about the registered agent

If the LLC is registered as public, this is information that everyone can see. If the LLC is private, the information may be classified or hidden. Depending on the state, owners may also be kept anonymous.

How to Keep Your LLC information Private?

Privacy is a precious commodity. As an LLC owner, how can you keep your as private as possible?

Anonymous LLCs are a great alternative for more privacy. An Anonymous LLC is like a regular LLC with added benefits, the biggest being privacy. It’s defined as a limited liability company whose owners are not publicly identifiable by the state.

People often wonder whether they can form an Anonymous LLC in a state they don’t live in. The answer is yes. Companies have flexibility when choosing where to establish their dwelling. This means that although Texas is not a state that currently allows formation of Anonymous LLCs, owners can easily form an LLC in a state that allows them.

For example, New Mexico is the only state that does not disclose names to the government – making it the state that offers the most privacy for businesses.

How does the owner of the LLC remain anonymous?

An Anonymous LLC means the state does not maintain any records of ownership or management, and therefore has nothing to disclose. In New Mexico, only the Articles of Organization are submitted to the state, and the Articles require only two names: The organizer and the Registered Agent (i.e., a lawyer).

In order to avoid the common drawbacks of forming an Anonymous LLC, let a qualified business lawyer act on your behalf. This will ensure your ultimate goal of maintaining privacy and will save you from unnecessary stress.
