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. There may be a fee required for opening your LLC, however. Applicable California 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 may be difficult to find, but different structures can end up saving your company a lot of money.

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

A business in Cotati may change its form under certain conditions. Whether or not a business is eligible for conversion to a LLC is a determination made by applicable California laws.
