In the case of an exsisting LLC, how much business can be conducted out of state prior to having to register the LLC in that state as well?

I have created an LLC in my homw state but have work outside out of state as well. I don’t want to wait to file the LLC registrations in more then 1 state, and it seems as though I will have a lot of money, and time spend waiting for all those registrations to go through.

Under the laws of all states in this country, ordinarily, even one transaction conducted by a limited liability company out of its state of registration is enough to trigger a requirement that it be registered in all other states where it does business.

However, if the limited liability company is contacted online and ships items to another state, an argument could be made that the entity is simply doing business in the state where the shipments originate. However, if actual physical presence is in another state, then the registration process should be triggered for the foreign state registration.

I suggest that you consult with a business attorney for further follow up as to your question.
