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?

A business in Alabama can be organized using the form that it chooses. If the founders want to organize as an LLC, all that is necessary is filing the appropriate 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. These laws should certainly help you decide whether to organize as an LLC. The business structure that is appropriate for your business might take some effort to find, but finding the right business form can reward you with increased profitability.

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

Businesses in Piedmont might sometimes change form. A company is eligible for conversion to an LLC if its situation falls under circumstances that are detailed by Alabama law.
