Please let me know if this should be posted somewhere else! Sorry if it isn't in the correct location!


I am starting up a Web Development & Marketing Company in Ohio. I am not finished finalizing all of the small details, but plan to start taking client at the beginning of 2016. When filing for my LLC, what should I write down for my "Date of Formation"? I can only set it at a maximum of 90 days after filing. If I choose January 1st, 2016 is that going to work?

"Date of Formation" Idea?

  • September 16th, 2015?
  • December 15st, 2015? (To ensure the effective date is within 90 days.)
  • December 31st, 2015?
  • January 1st, 2016?


Thanks in advanced!


There's no requirement that you see clients immediately, but why not wait a few weeks to file so January 1st is within the 90-day period?
