All LLCs in New York need to publish an article of organization or a notice in two local newspapers, a daily and a weekly, in the county where the LLC was formed.
This is in compliance with Section 206 of the New York State Limited Liability Company Law.

You will need to file for a Certificate of Publication with the Department of State. Publication filing fee costs are $50. Along with the filing fee and the Certificate of Publication, you will also need to submit the affidavits of publication from the two newspapers.

According to the NY Department of State website, LLC companies that do not comply with the publication requirement “will have their authority to carry on, conduct or transact any business suspended.” This means you will not be able to obtain any licenses or permits from the state until you meet the requirement.

Publication should be done within 120 days after the issuance of the articles of organization.

Although businesses are encouraged to work with legal experts as they form their LLCs, a lawyer is not a requirement to meet publication requirements. You or a trusted professional can handle the task without a lawyer’s assistance.
