The Limited Liability Company, or LLC, is a legal form of business organization that offers the benefits of several other traditional structures. An LLC enjoys the same form 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 endless 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. Different 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 may 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 frequently required to form a LLC. The actions of LLC's as well as the costs for operating them are determined by Alaska law. Applicable laws are a primary consideration in the decision of whether to organize as an LLC. The right business structure for your company might be difficult to find, but different structures can end up saving your company a lot of money.

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

Under certain conditions, a business in Kodiak may change its form. Eligibility for conversion to a LLC is determined by Alaska law.
