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. For hundreds of years, limited liability has been a main goal of some business forms, but since the Arkansas legislature enacted laws authorizing its formation, the modern LLC has become more and more popular.

Can My Business Be Formed as an LLC?

Arkansas allows a company to incorporate using the business form it chooses. To start as an LLC, a company just files the necessary form with the Secretary of State. Fees are frequently charged for opening LLC's, however, and Arkansas law determines the costs for creating LLC's. In deciding whether you should organize as an LLC, you should consider carefully the applicable laws. Finding the right business structure for your company may lead to increased profits, but the process may take some time.

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

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