Today we filed for the LLC!
The dream of owning a brewery just took the first step from plans and funny money to an actual plan and real money (the real money part is not so fun).
We decided to skip on hiring a lawyer or using one of the many legal services to file the LLC, and we are glad we did. It was VERY easy. All in all it took about 1 hour because we thought “this is too easy, we must be doing something wrong”.
In order to file we went to our secretary of state’s website and filed online. For Texas the link is sos.state.tx.us. Since it is just a partnership of my wife and I the form only required our names and address, and a few yes/no fields.
All in all it cost $300 to file and $1 to do a search over regular names and they claim that the form will be filed tomorrow if there were not any problems.
