What Is an LLC?

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

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

  • Easy to Manage

    The idea of the freedom to contract is the premise in which the structure of the LLC was founded, meaning owners are only required to agree amongst each other regarding how the company will operate. This agreement would be upheld within the courts. LLCs aren't legally obligated to carry out and record certain procedures such as amendments, annual board meetings, resolutions, and meeting minutes in the same way corporations are. In most states, owners of corporations that do not abide by these legal requirements may lose their asset and liability protection that is regularly extended to the corporate structure. Nevada has different circumstances, however, as they will only pierce the corporate veil in cases of fraud, as the aforementioned corporate procedures are not legally required. Again, each business will have varying circumstances that will help determine which legal business structure is most appropriate.

  • Tax Advantages

    Business owners will be legally separated from their business (like a corporation) with an LLC. However, they can also elect to be treated as if they were a partnership for tax purposes. In this instance, no tax is paid by the LLC; instead, income is moved to owners, similar to partnerships. The tax laws for partnerships are more flexible than corporations, creating more business planning options for taxes. Businesses can minimize their tax burden by creatively looking for ways to maximize the number of tax breaks they qualify for. Each business's specific circumstances will help determine whether an LLC or a corporation will offer them the most favorable tax advantages.

  • Ability to Raise Capital

    If a business is structured as an LLC, it can easily add new owners (called members) to the business. There aren't any limitations as to how many owners/investors can be added. The additional members can consist of individuals, corporations, trusts, or pension plans, all of which do not have to be in the same state or even in the United States. Also, an LLC or corporation can be created in a state where its owners themselves do not personally reside. For instance, a person could create an LLC in the business-friendly state of Nevada without ever physically having been to the state themselves.

  • 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.

Massachusetts 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.
