The Limited Liability Company, or LLC, is a legal form of business organization that offers the benefits 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 benefit of limited liability, the same as a corporation. An LLC can also have an endless amount of shareholders, like a corporation. However, the LLC is dissolved if one of those members dies or files for bankruptcy. Many business forms have traditionally been aimed at the goal of limited liability, but the LLC is the most modern of these forms, having become popular since the enactment of laws in California that authorized its formation.

Can My Business Be Formed as an LLC?

A business in California can be organized using the form that it chooses. If the founders want to organize as an LLC, all that is necessary is filing the appropriate form with the Secretary of State. However, some charge additional fees for the formation of LLC?s, and in California there are particular laws that govern the actions of LLC?s. In deciding whether you should organize as an LLC, you should consider carefully the applicable laws. Finding the right business structure for your company may lead to increased profits, but the process may take some time.
