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. 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 Alabama law. In deciding whether you should organize as an LLC, you should consider carefully the applicable laws. Finding the right business structure for your company can lead to increased profits, but the process may take some time.

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

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