Meridian, MS asked in Business Formation and Business Law for Tennessee

Q: Where do I file my LLC if I have a new company never registered with the state, but moved to a new state?

My business is registered with the IRS under my home address which was in Tennesee. My company is an outreach (home health) service that does not have a physical location. The services will be provided in Tennessee only at this time, however, I (the owner & founder) moved to Mississippi. Do I still file my articles of incorporation with the state of TN where service will be or do I have to file with MS since I moved here? It would be cheaper to file with MS, however, a lot of numbers like my DUNS and NPI will need to be updated as well if I do change to MS.

A: If you are providing the services in Tennessee, then you should likely either incorporate in Tennessee or you could file in MS and also file in Tennessee as a foreign LLC transacting business in Tennessee. For a deeper discussion of the pros and cons of each option, I recommend you speak with an experienced business attorney. Good luck!
