What is an LLC?

A Limited Liability Company or "LLC" is a specific type of business that integrates various beneficial aspects of corporations, partnerships, and sole proprietorships into simple, consolidated, and flexible business structure that is used and favored by many small business owners.

How can forming a Limited Liability Company help your business?

  • Easy to Manage

    Operating an LLC will not require the owners to record resolutions, amendments, meeting minutes, or annual board meetings, as is required by law with corporations. Most states will strip the asset and liability protection regularly provided to corporations if they do not fulfill these requirements. The ideas that formed the LLC structure aimed to provide businesses the freedom to contract, which means that owners only need to agree on how the company will operate, and the courts can uphold this agreement.

  • Tax Advantages

    LLCs legally separate a business from the owners (similar to a corporation), but they can also elect to be treated like a partnership for tax purposes. In this circumstance, the LLC wouldn't pay any taxes itself, and the income would be moved over to the owners, similar to partnerships. The tax laws applying to partnerships are more flexible than corporations, which grants businesses a certain degree of freedom in how they choose to prepare for their taxes. As a result, business owners can find ways to maximize the number of tax breaks they qualify for while minimizing their tax burden. Each unique business scenario is different, and this will help determine whether an LLC or a corporation creates the best tax advantages for your business.

  • Ability to Raise Capital

    When businesses are structured as LLCs, it is easy to bring on new owners (called members), and there is no limit to how many members an LLC can have. These additional owners/investors can consist of individuals, corporations, pension plans, and trusts, which do not need to be within the same state or even within the U.S. An LLC or corporation can be formed in a state where the owners do not reside. For example, one could create an LLC in the pro-business state of Nevada without ever having visited or been to the state themselves.

  • Liability and Asset Protection

    LLCs operate as separate legal entities that separate the business owners from the business itself. In modern society, lawsuits are a common and everyday occurrence, and this is why it is essential to protect yourself by creating a legal shield between you and your creditors. Business owners operating LLCs are not personally liable for any of the LLC's debts, even those associated with a contract or tort. To a large degree, the LLC operating agreement can include any rules and procedures that the agreeing parties would wish to put into it. Once it is established, it can remain indefinitely without maintenance. The operating agreement's initial drafting is significant because it must follow any IRS and state regulations so that the LLC can be taxed as a partnership and not a corporation.

  • Co-Owner Liability

    In all US states, LLC owners (members) are not typically held personally liable for another co-owner’s or employee’s wrongdoings. Corporations also protect this type of personal liability, while partnerships and sole proprietorships do not.

    Suppose an LLC is held responsible for negligence or wrongful actions of an employee or another owner. In that case, it can have financial assets or property taken from it due to an unfavorable judgment against them. The innocent LLC members will not be held personally liable; however, the owner or employee who perpetrated the act can be held personally responsible for their actions.

LLC Frequently Asked Questions

"LLC" and "Corporation" have many of the same characteristics. The most important characteristic they share is that they both offer limited liability protection to their owners. Typically, shareholders are not liable for the debts and obligations of the corporation; thus, creditors will not come knocking at the door of a shareholder to pay the debts of the corporation. In a partnership or sole proprietorship, the owner's personal assets may be used to pay debts of the business. With an LLC, the members are not personally liable for the debts and obligations of the corporation. There are many important differences between the corporation and LLC. The entities are taxed differently. An LLC is a pass-through tax entity. This means that the income to the entity is not taxed at the entity level; however, the entity does complete a tax return. The income or loss as shown on this return is "passed through" the business entity to the individual shareholders or interest holders, and is reported on their individual tax returns. With a standard corporation, the corporation is a separately taxable entity. Corporations are treated as separate legal taxable entities for income tax purposes. Therefore, corporations pay tax on their earnings. If corporate earnings are distributed to shareholders in the form of dividends, the corporation does not receive the reasonable business expense deduction, and dividend income is taxed as regular income to the shareholders. Thus, to the extent that earnings are distributed to shareholders as dividends, there is a double tax on earnings at the corporate and shareholder level.

In terms of reporting income, they are quite similar. The LLC is somewhat less restrictive than the "S" corporation. There can be any number of members, and there are few restrictions on who those members may be. They are also a relatively new entity, so there is not as great a definitive body of tax rulings on them as there is with corporations.

In most cases, the answer is no. In most states, InCorp assigns itself as the "incorporator" and is able to file all of the paperwork without an officer's signature. Some states require the officer's signatures on the Articles of Incorporation. In those cases, we will overnight the documents to you for your signature and have you return them to us, or use a facsimile signature to fulfill the requirement. In either case, you are not required to be present to form your corporation.

No. This is a common misconception among small-business owners, usually fostered by advice from an inexperienced accountant. Any seasoned advisor will tell you that incorporating is the first and foremost thing you should do when starting a business. Fforming an LLC will not only save you taxes but it will also limit your exposure to IRS audits by separating your personal and business expenses.

The title of the document filed in many states to register a limited liability company (LLC) with the state. Also known as articles of formation.

Managers are the individuals who are responsible for the maintenance, administration and management of the affairs of a limited liability company (LLC). In most states, the managers serve a particular term and report to and serve at the discretion of the members. Specific duties of the managers may be detailed in the articles of organization or the operating agreement of the LLC. In some states, the members of an LLC may also serve as the managers.

The owner(s) of a limited liability company (LLC are the Members. Unless the articles of organization or operating agreement provide otherwise, management of an LLC is vested in the members in proportion to their ownership interest in the company.
