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. For hundreds of years, limited liability has been a main goal of some business forms, but since the Alabama legislature enacted laws authorizing its formation, the modern LLC has become more and more popular.

Can My Business Be Formed as an LLC?

Businesses in Alabama 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, some charge additional fees for the formation of LLC?s, and in Alabama there are certain laws that govern the actions of LLC?s. 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?
