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 has the same advantage 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. An LLC can also have an unlimited amount of shareholders, like a corporation. However, the LLC is dissolved if one of those members dies or files for bankruptcy. Limited liability has historically been a primary goal of many business forms, but since the legislature authorized it in Nevada, the modern LLC has become increasingly popular.
Can My Business Be Formed as an LLC?
The right business form is a decision left up to each business that openes in Nevada. An LLC is started simply by filing the appropriate form with the Secretary of State. However, some charge additional fees for the formation of LLC?s, and in Nevada there are particular laws that govern the actions of LLC?s. Applicable laws are a primary consideration in the decision of whether to organize as an LLC. The right business structure for your company may be difficult to find, but different structures can end up saving your company a lot of money.
