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. LLC's, like corporations, may also have as many shareholders, or members, as desired. The LLC, however, is dissolved if one of those members files for bankruptcy or dies. Different forms of limited liability companies have been around for hundreds years, but the modern LLC, like the legislature enacted in Alabama, became more popular in the past several decades.

Can My Business Be Formed as an LLC?

In Alabama, a business can be formed using the form that it chooses. Opening an LLC just requires that the business founders file a form with the Secretary of State. There can be a fee required for opening your LLC, however. Applicable Alabama laws govern the formation of LLC's and their actions. 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 particular conditions, a business in Mountain Brook may change its form. Eligibility for conversion to a LLC is determined by Alabama law.
