Form 313--General Information (Application for Registration of a Foreign Series Limited Liability Company) The attached form is drafted to meet minimal statutory filing requirements pursuant to the relevant code provisions. This form and the information provided are not substitutes for the advice and services of an attorney and tax specialist. Commentary To transact business in Texas, a foreign entity must register with the secretary of state under chapter 9 of the Texas Business Organizations Code (BOC). The registration requirement applies to a foreign corporation, foreign limited partnership, foreign limited liability company, foreign business trust, foreign real estate investment trust, foreign cooperative, foreign public or private limited company, or another foreign entity, the formation of which, if formed in Texas, would require the filing of a certificate of formation with the secretary of state. Also, a foreign entity that affords limited liability for any owner or member under the laws of its jurisdiction of formation is required to register. This form is designed to comply with the requirements of section 9.005 and applies only to a limited liability company that is authorized in its jurisdiction of formation to establish a series limited liability company. A limited liability company that is not governed by a law authorizing the establishment of a series LLC should use Form 304 or Form 305, as applicable. Series Limited Liability Company: A foreign limited liability company that is formed under the laws of a jurisdiction that permits the entity to be governed by a company agreement that establishes or provides for the establishment of a designated series is required to provide certain supplemental information in its application for registration to provide notice of the series structure. (BOC § 9.005) A series limited liability company that is treated as a single legal entity under the laws of its jurisdiction of organization is treated as a single legal entity for purposes of registration. The limited liability company rather than the individual series should register as the legal entity that is transacting business in Texas. If each or any series of the company transacting business in Texas transacts business under a name other than the name of the limited liability company, the company must file an assumed name certificate in compliance with chapter 71 of the Texas Business & Commerce Code. Failure to Register: A foreign entity may engage in certain limited activities in the state without being required to register (BOC § 9.251). However, a foreign entity that fails to register when required to do so 1) may be enjoined from transacting business in Texas on application by the attorney general, 2) may not maintain an action, suit, or proceeding in a court of this state until registered, and 3) is subject to a civil penalty in an amount equal to all fees and taxes that would have been imposed if the entity had registered when first required. Penalty for Late Filing: A foreign entity that has transacted business in the state for more than ninety (90) days is also subject to a late filing fee. The secretary of state may condition the filing of the registration on the payment of a late filing fee that is equal to the registration fee for each year, or part of a year, that the entity transacted business in the state without being registered. Taxes: Limited liability companies are subject to a state franchise tax. Contact the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts, Tax Assistance Section, Austin, Texas, 78774-0100, (512) 463-4600 or (800) 2521381 for franchise tax information. For information relating to federal employer identification numbers, Form 313 1 American LegalNet, Inc. federal income tax filing requirements, tax publications and forms call (800) 829-3676 or visit the Internal Revenue Service web site at Instructions for Form Item 1--Entity Name and Type: Provide the full legal name of the foreign entity as stated in the entity's formation document. The name of the foreign entity must comply with chapter 5 of the BOC. Chapter 5 requires that: (1) the entity name contain a recognized term of organization for the entity type as listed in section 5.056 of the BOC; (2) the entity name not contain any word or phrase that indicates or implies that the entity is engaged in a business that the entity is not authorized to pursue (BOC § 5.052); and (3) the entity name not be the same as, deceptively similar to, or similar to the name of any existing domestic or foreign filing entity, or any name reservation or registration filed with the secretary of state (BOC §5.053). If the entity name does not comply with chapter 5, the document cannot be filed. The administrative rules adopted for determining entity name availability (Texas Administrative Code, title 1, part 4, chapter 79, subchapter C) may be viewed at If you wish the secretary of state to provide a preliminary determination on name availability, you may call (512) 463-5555, dial 7-1-1 for relay services, or e-mail your name inquiry to A final determination cannot be made until the document is received and processed by the secretary of state. Do not make financial expenditures or execute documents based on a preliminary clearance. Also note that the preclearance of a name or the issuance of a certificate under a name does not authorize the use of a name in violation of another person's rights to the name. Item 2A--Assumed Name: If the entity name fails to contain an appropriate organizational designation for the entity type, a recognized organizational designation should be added to the legal name and set forth in item 2A. Accepted organizational designations for a foreign limited liability company are: "limited liability company," "limited company," or an abbreviation of those terms. Item 2B--Assumed Name: If it has been determined that the entity's legal name is not available for its use in Texas due to a conflict with a previously existing name, the foreign entity must obtain its registration to transact business under an assumed name that complies with chapter 5 of the BOC. State the assumed name that the foreign entity elects to adopt for use in Texas in item 2B of the certificate. In addition, the foreign entity is required to file an assumed name certificate in compliance with chapter 71 of the Texas Business & Co
