Form an LLC

LLC (Limited Liability Company)

A Limited Liability Company (LLC) is a popular business structure that combines the liability protection of a corporation with the flexibility and tax advantages of a partnership or sole proprietorship.

Key features of an LLC include:

  • Limited Liability: Similar to corporations, one of the primary benefits of an LLC is that it offers limited liability protection to its owners (referred to as members). This means that the personal assets of members are generally protected from business debts and liabilities.

  • Pass-Through Taxation: By default, an LLC is taxed as a pass-through entity. This means that the profits and losses of the business “pass through” to the members’ personal tax returns, and the LLC itself does not pay federal income taxes. This avoids the double taxation experienced by C-Corporations.

  • Flexibility in Management and Structure: LLCs offer flexibility in their management structure. They can be managed by the members themselves (member-managed) or by appointed managers (manager-managed). This structure allows for a setup that aligns with the business’s operational needs and the roles of its members.

  • Ease of Formation and Less Administrative Burden: Forming an LLC typically involves less paperwork and fewer formalities compared to corporations. Most states allow for a straightforward formation process with fewer ongoing compliance requirements, such as minimal annual filings and fewer meeting requirements.

  • Ownership and Membership: LLCs can have an unlimited number of members, and ownership interests can be easily transferred or assigned as outlined in the operating agreement, which is an internal document that sets out how the company will be run.

  • Separate Legal Entity: Similar to corporations, an LLC is considered a separate legal entity from its owners. This separation allows the LLC to enter into contracts, own assets, and conduct business in its own name.

  • Versatile Use: LLCs are suitable for various businesses, from small startups to larger enterprises, as well as for holding assets such as real estate or intellectual property.

  • Credibility and Professionalism: Having “LLC” in a business name can add a level of credibility and professionalism, which might be beneficial when dealing with clients, partners, or investors.
