What is an LLC?

Find the right LLC attorney in Middletown, OH

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. Limited liability is an advantage that the LLC shares with the corporation, but instead of being taxed as its own entity, it is treated more like a sole proprietorship or partnership for tax purposes. 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. Business forms with limited liability have existed for hundreds of years, but the modern LLC became more popular in Ohio since the legislature enacted laws authorizing its formation.

Can My Business Be Formed as an LLC?

A business in Ohio 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, fees are often required to form a LLC. The actions of LLC's as well as the costs for operating them are determined by Ohio law. In deciding whether you should organize as an LLC, you should consider carefully the applicable laws. Finding the right business structure for your company can lead to increased profits, but the process may take some time.
