What is an LLC?
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. Many business forms have historically 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?
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. However, there may be an additional fee required for forming your LLC, determined by California laws that govern the formation and actions of LLC's. These laws should certainly help you decide whether to organize as an LLC. The business structure that is appropriate for your business may take some effort to find, but finding the right business form can reward you with increased profitability.
