What is an LLC?
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. Also like corporations, LLC's may have as many shareholders, or members, as it likes. Unlike a corporation however, the death or bankruptcy of one of the members will dissolve the LLC. Different forms of limited liability companies have been around for hundreds years, but the modern LLC, like the legislature enacted in Arkansas, became more popular in the past several decades.
Can My Business Be Formed as an LLC?
In Arkansas, a business can be formed using the form that it chooses. Opening an LLC just requires that the business founders file a form with the Secretary of State. There can be a fee required for opening your LLC, however. Applicable Arkansas 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.
