The Limited Liability Company, or LLC, is a legal form of business organization that offers the advantages of several other traditional structures. Like a sole proprietorship or partnership, an LLC is not taxed as its own entity. However, it still has the advantage of limited liability, the same as a corporation. An LLC can also have an unlimited amount of shareholders, like a corporation. However, the LLC is dissolved if one of those members dies or files for bankruptcy. Various forms of limited liability companies have been around for hundreds years, but the modern LLC, like the legislature enacted in California, became more popular in the past several decades.

Can My Business Be Formed as an LLC?

The right business form is a decision left up to each business that openes in California. An LLC is started simply by filing the appropriate form with the Secretary of State. Fees are often charged for opening LLC's, however, and California law determines the costs for creating LLC's. You should consider these laws when deciding whether to organize your business as an LLC. Finding the right business structure for your company may take some effort, but it will ultimately make your business more profitable.
