What Is an LLC?

A Minnesota Limited Liability Company or "LLC" is a specific type of business structure that combines beneficial characteristics of partnerships, corporations, and sole proprietorships into a consolidated and flexible form of business that is widely used and preferred amongst many small business owners.

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

  • Easy to Run

    The concepts which helped create the LLC structure are intended to provide companies the freedom to contract. This means that owners only need to agree on how their business will operate, and the courts will uphold this agreement. LLCs are not bound to the same legal requirements as corporations, such as recording amendments, resolutions, meeting minutes, and annual board meetings. Most states will remove the asset and liability protection typically granted to the corporate structure if they do not meet these requirements. Nevada is a different example, though, as these corporate procedures are not legally required, and the corporate veil will not be pierced unless there are instances of fraud. Again, various factors will help establish which business structure is the best choice in forming your business.

  • Tax Advantages

    The structure of an LLC legally separates a business from its owners (like a corporation) and allows the LLC to choose to be treated as a partnership for tax purposes. In this case, the LLC pays no taxes, and the income is shifted over to the owners, similar to partnerships. The tax laws applied to partnerships are more flexible than corporations, which grants a greater degree of freedom and maneuverability in how businesses choose to prepare for their taxes. Companies can find creative ways to take advantage of all the tax breaks they may qualify for while minimizing their tax burdens. Each business will have a different set of circumstances that will help determine whether an LLC or corporation is the best option in creating the greatest tax advantages.

  • Ability to Raise Capital

    Businesses that choose to structure themselves as LLCs can add new owners (called members) in a simple and straightforward process, and there is no limit to how many new members can be added. These additional members and investors can include individuals, corporations, trusts, or pension plans and do not need to be within the same state or even within the country itself. LLCs or corporations can also be formed by their owners in a state where they do not personally live. For example, an LLC can be created by its owners in the pro-business state of Nevada, even if the owners have never been to Nevada themselves.

  • Liability and Asset Protection

    Our modern society is a "lawsuit-friendly" environment, and this is why it is important to put a legal barrier between you and your creditors. LLCs operate as entirely separate legal entities from their owners, and in doing so, they separate their owners from the business itself and protect them. The owner is not personally liable for any LLC debt, including debt related to contract or tort. For the most part, the operating agreement can hold any procedures and rules that the participating parties may desire, and when it is put into place, it can exist as is without the need to update or maintain it. The initial drafting of this operating agreement is of key importance because it is necessary to comply with any IRS and state regulations so the LLC can be taxed as a partnership instead of as 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.

Minnesota 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.

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.
