What Is an LLC?

A Kansas Limited Liability Company or "LLC" is a unique type of business that merges different beneficial components of partnerships, corporations, and sole proprietorships into a flexible and straightforward business structure that many small business owners favor.

How Can Forming a Kansas Limited Liability Company Help Your Business?

  • Easy to Run

    The LLC structure was built around the concept of having the freedom to contract. This idea expresses that the owners are only required to make agreements amongst themselves regarding how the company will be run, and these agreements can be held up in a court of law. One big difference between LLCs and corporations is that corporations are required by law to maintain annual board meetings, meeting minutes, resolutions, and amendments, and LLCs are not. In addition to this, corporations that do not follow these procedures can lose the asset and liability protection typically granted to them, meaning the owners can be held personally liable for the corporation's acts and debts. The state of Nevada is an exception to this, though, as the corporate veil cannot be pierced (except in cases of fraud) if these corporate procedures are not performed. Again, each company's specific circumstances will help deduce whether an LLC or a corporation is the appropriate structure for the business.

  • Tax Advantages

    An LLC's structure legally separates the business owners from the business (like a corporation). However, it also allows the LLC to be treated like a partnership for tax purposes. In this scenario, taxes aren't paid by the LLC itself, but the income is moved to the owners, as with partnerships. The tax regulations governing partnerships are more flexible, allowing for more freedom in tax planning. Business owners can search for ways to take advantage of tax breaks they may qualify for. All business's circumstances are different, and this will help establish whether an LLC or corporation is the most appropriate and offers the best tax advantages to the business.

  • Ability to Raise Capital

    When your business is structured as an LLC, it is a relatively simple process to add new owners (called members) to your company, and there are no limits as to how many members can be involved. These additional owners/investors can consist of individuals, corporations, trusts, and pension plans, which are not required to be in the same state or even in the United States. LLCs and corporations can also be formed in states you don't personally reside in. So, for example, you could create an LLC in the business-friendly state of Nevada without ever having been to the state yourself.

  • Liability and Asset Protection

    In today's "lawsuit-happy" world, it is imperative to create a legal shield between you and your creditors in order to protect yourself. LLCs act as separate legal entities and separate their owners from the business itself. There is no personal liability for an LLC's debts, even if they are related to a contract or tort. The operating agreement can, for the most part, include any rules and procedures that the various parties want, and when it is put into place, it can exist free of maintenance. The first drafting of the operating agreement is essential because it needs to comply with all state and IRS regulations in order for the LLC to be taxed as a partnership and not a corporation.

  • Co-Owner Liability

    In all U.S. 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 it. 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.

Kansas 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. Forming 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.
