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. LLC's, like corporations, can also have as many shareholders, or members, as desired. The LLC, however, is dissolved if one of those members files for bankruptcy or dies. Various 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 simply requires that the business founders file a form with the Secretary of State. There may be a fee required for opening your LLC, however. Applicable Alabama laws govern the formation of LLC's and their actions. When deciding whether to form a LLC, you should consider which laws would apply to your company. Although it may take some time to find, choosing the right business structure for your company will lead to increased profitability.
