What is an LLC?

Find the right LLC attorney in San Ramon, CA

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. LLC's, like corporations, may also have as many shareholders, or members, as desired. The LLC, however, is dissolved if one of those members files for bankruptcy or dies. Business forms with limited liability have existed for hundreds of years, but the modern LLC became more popular in California since the legislature enacted laws authorizing its creation.

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 just by filing the appropriate form with the Secretary of State. Fees are regularly charged for opening LLC's, however, and California law determines the costs for creating LLC's. You should consider these laws when deciding whether to organize your business as an LLC. Finding the right business structure for your company might take some effort, but it will ultimately make your business more profitable.

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

Businesses in San Ramon might sometimes change form. A company is eligible for conversion to an LLC if its situation falls under circumstances that are detailed by California law.
