Washington requires most businesses to obtain a license and pay a fee if operating in the state. Please check with the state to make sure your business is complying with the license requirements for your particular activity.

Many times forming a Washington LLC allows you to receive some tax benefits that you cannot receive when you form a full-fledged corporation.

If you live outside of the state of Washington, or outside of the country, and you’re thinking about filing for corporate status, you will need to find a Washington registered agent. This is a person or company that is charged with accepting official documents and other correspondence on your behalf in your absence.

During the course of the fiscal year, the Washington Secretary of State may need to contact you regarding all kinds of different business concerns.
