What is an LLC?
A limited liability company, commonly called an “LLC,” is a business structure that combines the pass-through taxation of a partnership or sole proprietorship with the limited liability of a corporation.
When looking at business types, many business owners choose to form a limited liability company (LLC). Creating an LLC is a good way to “wall off” your personal assets from your company’s liabilities, offering protection for your personal assets in the event of a judgment against your business. For this reason, forming an LLC is a better fit for many owners than a sole proprietorship or a general partnership.
Choosing an LLC
LLC (Limited Liability Company) provides limited liability protection to their owners (called members). Typically, owners are not personally responsible for business debts and liabilities of the limited liability company so creditors cannot pursue owners’ personal assets to pay business debts.
A limited liability company (LLC) also has certain tax advantages. The business itself is not responsible for taxes on its profits. Instead, the LLC’s owners, known as “members,” report their share of business profit and loss on their personal tax returns, similar to tax reporting for a general partnership. This is known as “pass-through” taxation.
What is the difference between an LLC and a Corporation?
LLC’s will typically have fewer formalities and legal requirements. For example, you do not have to hold formal meetings or keep records every company decision. An LLC has an easy set up, and allows you to get your business up and running right away.
A corporation is suggestible if the business owner plans to raise outside capital from investors. Corporations have stricter formalities to keep investors informed of where their money is going. Forming a corporation is perfect for business owners who plan to take their companies public in the future.
