What is an LLC?

Find the right LLC attorney in Lawton, OK

The Limited Liability Company, or LLC, is a legal business structure that seeks to combine advantages from across several 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. An LLC can also have an endless amount of shareholders, like a corporation. However, the LLC is dissolved if one of those members dies or files for bankruptcy. For hundreds of years, limited liability has been a main goal of some business forms, but since the Oklahoma legislature enacted laws authorizing its formation, the modern LLC has become more and more popular.

Can My Business Be Formed as an LLC?

Businesses in Oklahoma may organize using whatever form they choose. The office of the Secretary of State is the organization that accepts filings by those who want to open LLC's. However, there can be an additional fee required for forming your LLC, determined by Oklahoma laws that govern the formation and actions of LLC's. When deciding whether to form a LLC, you should consider which laws would apply to your company. Although it might take some time to find, choosing the right business structure for your company will lead to increased profitability.
