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

There may be a fee required for opening your LLC, however. Applicable California laws govern the formation of LLC's and their actions. You should consider these laws when deciding whether to organize your business as an LLC.
