What Is an LLC?

An Oregon Limited Liability Company or "LLC" is a distinct type of business structure that integrates various beneficial components of corporations, sole proprietorships, and partnerships into a simple, comprehensive, and flexible type of business framework that is widely used and favored amongst many small businesses.

How Can Forming an Oregon Limited Liability Company Help Your Business?

  • Easy to Run

    The LLC structure is based on businesses having the freedom to contract. This signifies that owners only need to agree amongst themselves on how the company will operate, and this agreement can be upheld in court. With an LLC, annual board meetings, amendments, meeting minutes, and resolutions are not required by law, as is the case with corporations. Corporations that do not comply with these laws can lose the corporate structure's asset and liability protection in most states. Nevada is an exception, as the corporate veil cannot be pierced (except for fraud) if these corporate processes are not performed. Again, your unique circumstances will determine whether an LLC or a corporation is best for you.

  • Tax Advantages

    The structure of an LLC legally separates owners of the business from the business itself (similar to a corporation). Also, it can choose to be treated like a partnership for tax purposes. In this situation, an LLC would not pay taxes itself; the income would move to the owners, as with partnerships. The tax laws governing partnerships are more flexible than corporations, allowing businesses more variability and options in preparing for taxes. A company can search for creative ways to take advantage of potential tax breaks they may qualify for. Every business's situation will differ, and depending on the circumstances, either an LLC or corporation may offer the business owner more significant tax advantages.

  • Ability to Raise Capital

    When you structure your business as an LLC, adding new owners (referred to as members) to your business is a straightforward process, and there isn't any limit as to how many members can be involved. These additional investors can consist of individuals, corporations, trusts, and pension plans. None of which need to reside in the same state or even within the U.S. You can also form either an LLC or corporation in a state you don't live in; for example, you could start an LLC in business-friendly Nevada without even setting foot in the state.

  • Liability and Asset Protection

    In today's business world, lawsuits are a common occurrence, and this is why it is necessary to protect yourself by putting in legal safeguards between you and your creditors. As separate legal entities, LLCs effectively separate business owners from the business itself, therefore protecting them. Business owners are not personally liable for any of their LLC's debts, including those related to a contract or tort. To a large degree, the operating agreement can allow for the inclusion of any rules and procedures that the various parties may want to put into it. When it is established, it can simply exist indefinitely, maintenance-free. The operating agreement's initial drafting is of importance because it will need to follow all state and IRS regulations for the LLC to 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.

Oregon 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 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.
