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. For hundreds of years, limited liability has been a main goal of some business forms, but since the California legislature enacted laws authorizing its formation, the modern LLC has become more and more popular.

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, there can be an additional fee required for forming your LLC, determined by California laws that govern the formation and actions of LLC's. When deciding whether to form a LLC, you should consider which laws would apply to your company. Although it might take some time to find, choosing the right business structure for your company will lead to increased profitability.
