The LLC, or Limited Liability Company, is a business structure that was invented to offer an array of advantages usually provided by other traditional business forms. A LLC has the advantages of a corporation's limited liability, but avoids double taxation like a partnership or sole proprietorship. 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. Limited liability has traditionally been a primary goal of many business forms, but since the legislature authorized it in Mississippi, the modern LLC has become increasingly popular.

Applicable laws are a primary consideration in the decision of whether to organize as an LLC.
