What Is an LLC?

North Dakota Limited Liability Companies or "LLCs" are unique types of businesses that combine different aspects of sole proprietorships, corporations, and partnerships into a simple, effective, and flexible business structure that is commonly used and preferred amongst small business owners.

How Can Forming a North Dakota Limited Liability Company Help Your Business?

  • Easy to Manage

    The LLC structure was formed around the idea of freedom to contract, meaning that the owners only have to agree amongst themselves regarding how the company should be run. This agreement can be upheld in the court system. LLCs are not under the same regulations that corporations are, and procedures such as having to record resolutions, meeting minutes, amendments, and annual board meetings are not required by law for LLCs. In most states, if corporations don't fulfill these requirements, they may be stripped of their asset and liability protection, which is typically a part of the corporate structure. Nevada is different regarding these corporate procedures as they do not legally require corporations to follow them. The corporate veil can only be pierced if there are instances of fraud. Again, your business will have specific circumstances that will help establish whether an LLC or a corporation is the better fit.

  • 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

    Businesses structured as LLCs can add new owners (called members) easily and simply, and there is no limit as to how many new members they can add. These additional members and investors can be comprised of individuals, corporations, trusts, or pension plans, none of which have to be in the same state or even within the United States. In addition, LLCs or corporations can also be created in states where their owners do not reside themselves. For instance, you could form an LLC in the pro-business state of Nevada without living or even having been there.

  • 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.

North Dakota 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).
