The LLC, or Limited Liability Company, is a business structure that was invented to offer an array of benefits normally provided by other traditional business forms. An LLC enjoys the same type of limited liability as a corporation, but like the sole proprietorship and partnership, it is not taxed as its own entity. LLC's, like corporations, can also have as many shareholders, or members, as desired. The LLC, however, is dissolved if one of those members files for bankruptcy or dies. For hundreds of years, limited liability has been a primary goal of some business forms, but since the Nebraska 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 Nebraska can be organized using the form that it chooses. If the founders want to organize as an LLC, all that is required is filing the appropriate form with the Secretary of State. However, some charge additional fees for the formation of LLC?s, and in Nebraska there are particular laws that govern the actions of 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 may take some effort, but it will ultimately make your business more profitable.
