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. Limited liability has traditionally 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?
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. There can be a fee required for opening your LLC, however. Applicable Arkansas laws govern the formation of LLC's and their actions. Applicable laws are a primary consideration in the decision of whether to organize as an LLC. The right business structure for your company might be difficult to find, but different structures can end up saving your company a lot of money.
