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. Limited liability has historically been a primary goal of many business forms, but since the legislature authorized it in Arkansas, the modern LLC has become increasingly popular.
Can My Business Be Formed as an LLC?
The right business form is a decision left up to each business that openes in Arkansas. An LLC is started simply by filing the appropriate form with the Secretary of State. However, there may be an additional fee required for forming your LLC, determined by Arkansas laws that govern the formation and actions of LLC's. Applicable laws are a primary consideration in the decision of whether to organize as an LLC. The right business structure for your company may be difficult to find, but different structures can end up saving your company a lot of money.
