We get a lot of telephone calls and emails from potential clients regarding the creation of a new business or real estate venture or investment. Invariably the potential client asks us for our estimate of the charges to create the new entity and then asks us why they shouldn't use the self-help legal services websites to advise and form their new entity. The online entity formation tools seem to be cheaper and fairly simple to use. We typically inform these potential clients that the lower cost offered by such options does come at a price that they may well end up paying down the road.
Setting up an LLC in Texas is a relatively simple task that requires very little information. To successfully form an LLC in Texas you only need to provide the name of the LLC, the registered agent's name and address, identify the LLC's members or managers, a statement of the LLC's purpose, and identify the LLC's organizer.
