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 Arizona, the modern LLC has become increasingly popular.

Can My Business Be Formed as an LLC?

Businesses in Arizona may organize using whatever form they choose. The office of the Secretary of State is the organization that accepts filings by those who want to open LLC's. However, fees are regularly required to form a LLC. The actions of LLC's as well as the costs for operating them are determined by Arizona law. 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.
