The Limited Liability Company, or LLC, is a legal form of business organization that offers the advantages of several other traditional structures. An LLC enjoys the same type of limited liability as a corporation, but like the sole proprietorship and partnership, it is not taxed as its own entity. Like a corporation, the LLC can also have an unlimited amount of shareholders, called members. Unlike a corporation however, if a member dies, files for bankruptcy, or otherwise leaves the LLC, the company is dissolved. Various forms of limited liability companies have been around for hundreds years, but the modern LLC, like the legislature enacted in Alaska, became more popular in the past several decades.

Can My Business Be Formed as an LLC?

Businesses in Alaska can organize using whatever form they choose. The office of the Secretary of State is the organization that accepts filings by those who want to open LLC's. However, fees are generally required to form a LLC. The actions of LLC's as well as the costs for operating them are determined by Alaska law. You should consider these laws when deciding whether to organize your business as an LLC. Finding the right business structure for your company may take some effort, but it will ultimately make your business more profitable.

Can I Change the Form of My Business to an LLC?

Businesses in Kenai may change their forms in specific circumstances. Whether a business may convert to a LLC or not is determined by Alaska law.
