New York LLC Publication Cost

New York requires that LLCs publish notice of formation in a newspaper that operates from the same county as the LLC's principal address. For LLCs in counties where publication fees are high, like New York, Bronx, Kings, and Queens counties, this can be expensive.

Our New York LLC Publication Cost guide outlines the costs of publication in all counties and gives options for saving money.

Recommended: Use a registered agent service like ZenBusiness to publish in an inexpensive county.


New York LLC Publishing Costs by County

The cost of filing the New York Certificate of Publication for Domestic Limited Liability Company with the New York Secretary of State is $50.

Cost with a Service - How to Save Money with a Service

The NY publication requirement can be a financial burden for many small businesses. 

Small businesses in more expensive counties, especially New York, Kings, Queens, Bronx, and Suffolk, find that using a registered agent service is the best way to alleviate the burden of the New York publishing requirement.

ZenBusiness is headquartered in Albany county, where publication costs are low.
