What is an LLC?

Find the right LLC attorney in Jacksonville, FL

The Limited Liability Company, or LLC, is a legal form of business organization that offers the benefits of several other traditional structures. An LLC has the same benefit of limited liability that a corporation does, but without being taxed as its own entity. Instead, it's taxed more similarly to a sole proprietorship or partnership. Like a corporation, the LLC can also have an endless amount of shareholders, called members. Unlike a corporation however, if a member dies, files for bankruptcy, or otherwise leaves the LLC, the company is dissolved. Different forms of limited liability companies have been around for hundreds years, but the modern LLC, like the legislature enacted in Florida, became more popular in the past several decades.

Can My Business Be Formed as an LLC?

In Florida, a business can be formed using the form that it chooses. Opening an LLC just requires that the business founders file a form with the Secretary of State. Fees are regularly charged for opening LLC's, however, and Florida law determines the costs for creating LLC's. These laws should certainly help you decide whether to organize as an LLC. The business structure that is appropriate for your business might take some effort to find, but finding the right business form can reward you with increased profitability.

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