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?

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 required is filing the appropriate 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. These laws should certainly help you decide whether to organize as an LLC. The business structure that is appropriate for your business may 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 Rainsville may change their forms in certain circumstances. Whether a business may convert to a LLC or not is determined by Alabama law.
