The LLC, or Limited Liability Company, is a business structure that was invented to offer an array of benefits typically 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. Also like corporations, LLC's can have as many shareholders, or members, as it likes. Unlike a corporation however, the death or bankruptcy of one of the members will dissolve the LLC. Many business forms have historically been aimed at the goal of limited liability, but the LLC is the most modern of these forms, having become popular since the enactment of laws in New Hampshire that authorized its formation.
