Are There any Minimum Capital Requirements to Form a Delaware Corporation or LLC?

No. Delaware does not have a minimum capital requirement to incorporate a corporation or form an LLC.

When incorporating in Delaware, a corporation must designate the amount of common stock (shares) that the corporation is authorized to issue and the par value for each (share of or type of) stock. “Par value” is the minimum value that the stock will have, and multiplying par value by the number of shares will give you the value of capital, although it is possible to issue no-par value shares.

Unlike a corporation, LLCs do not have stock. Rather, members contribute capital to the LLC, both when it is formed and at later dates (if needed). Typically, these original contributions are reflected in the Operating Agreement.
