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. Like a corporation, the LLC can also have an unlimited amount of shareholders, called members. Unlike a corporation however, if a member dies, files for bankruptcy, or otherwise leaves the LLC, the company is dissolved. Many business forms have historically been aimed at the goal of limited liability, but the LLC is the most modern of these forms, having become popular since the enactment of laws in Alaska that authorized its formation.

Can My Business Be Formed as an LLC?

Alaska allows a company to incorporate using the business form it chooses. To begin as an LLC, a company simply files the necessary 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 Alaska law. You should consider these laws when deciding whether to organize your business as an LLC. Finding the right business structure for your company may take some effort, but it will ultimately make your business more profitable.
