Parker, CO asked in Business Formation for Colorado

Q: How to move a Nevada LLC to Colorado? I want to preserve the company history and EIN but I don't want in Nevada anymore.

I have a Nevada LLC and I want to move it to Colorado where I now live. I want to preserve the company history, EIN, etc. so not start a new LLC but just migrate it to a new state. What's the best way to do this? I heard creating a new LLC in Colorado and merging the Nevada one into it, but would this allow me to keep the history of the business and EIN? Is there another way to do this without merging?

A: Yes.

You can create a new CO LLC and have that LLC acquire the NV LLC. Then merge the two with the CO LLC surviving.


File a foreign registration in CO for the NV LLC. Then convert the CO foreign LLC to a domestic LLC.

Dissolve the NV LLC.

That moves the LLC from NV to CO without the merger and no interruption of entity status for tax elections, EIN, contracts, and other fun things.
