What Is an LLC?

A Vermont Limited Liability Company or "LLC" is a type of business structure that blends various beneficial aspects of partnerships, sole proprietorships, and corporations into a comprehensive and flexible type of business framework that is used and preferred by many people who own and operate small businesses.

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

  • Easy to Run

    The ideas that formed the LLC structure aimed to provide businesses the freedom to contract, which means that owners only need to agree on how the company will operate, and the courts can uphold this agreement. Operating an LLC will not require the owners to record resolutions, amendments, meeting minutes, or annual board meetings, as is required by law with corporations. Most states will strip the asset and liability protection regularly provided to corporations if they do not fulfill these requirements. Nevada, however, will not remove these corporate protections if these procedures are not performed and will only pierce the corporate veil in the case of fraud. Again, particular factors regarding your business will help determine which is the best structure for you.

  • Tax Advantages

    While an LLC legally separates itself from its owners (as corporations do), it can choose to be regulated similarly to a partnership for tax purposes. In this scenario, the LLC will not pay any tax itself; instead, the income would be filtered through to the owners in the same way it is with partnerships. The tax regulations regarding partnerships are more flexible than corporations, which allows for more maneuverability in tax planning. Businesses can search for creative ways to maximize the tax breaks they may qualify for. Each business's situation will be different and will dictate whether an LLC or a corporation is more advantageous when it comes to taxes.

  • Ability to Raise Capital

    When a business is structured as an LLC, it is easy and straightforward to add new owners (called members) to the company, and there are no limitations as to how many members can be added. The additional members/investors can include individuals, corporations, pension plans, and trusts, which are not required to reside within the same state. In addition, an LLC or corporation can be formed by its creators in a state they may not personally reside in themselves. For example, a company could be created as an LLC or corporation in the business-friendly state of Nevada without its founders ever having been there.

  • 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.

Vermont 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).
