    Looking to create an online business, under a LLC but I do not want my name and address available to the public. Is there a certain way to go about this? I remember reading a post on here where a person was able to do this but forgot in which state. Thanks!

    I don't know the laws in all states but I'm almost positive that ALL states require that it be public information and posted in the local newspapers to be "on record". You could, however, it there's a reason specific to only this business that you don't want it public then you could create a second company and have that one be the registered owner of the main company. People do similar stuff all the time with real estate. Be careful though lots to watch out for so consult an attorney.

    Have you checked your state laws online?
    In my opinion some people may use other person's name and address to register an LLC to avoid being detected.

    Okay in order to hide your personal information you really need to set up a offshore shelf
    business. This makes your liability limited and your not actually responsible for the company.
    If your concerned about privacy for yourself and this new company then you will really need
    to consider opening offshore banking. I mean it does not do allot of good to have privacy with
    a company but not with the bank or where the money is going.

    Hope this helps and good luck!
