The vast majority of businesses in the state of Illinois - a full 98 percent - are smaller companies.

That means we field many questions from aspiring entrepreneurs about how to form a limited liability company, or an LLC.

One of the questions we often get asked is whether you can form an LLC if you’re not a United States citizen.

To most people’s surprise, the answer is yes.

In this video, we talk about how to form an LLC in Illinois if you’re a non-U.S. citizen.
