What is an LLC?

Find the right LLC attorney in Beaumont, TX

The Limited Liability Company, or LLC, is a legal business structure that seeks to combine advantages from across several other traditional business forms. Like a sole proprietorship or partnership, an LLC is not taxed as its own entity. However, it still has the benefit of limited liability, the same as a corporation. Also like corporations, LLC's may 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. Different forms of limited liability companies have been around for hundreds years, but the modern LLC, like the legislature enacted in Texas, became more popular in the past several decades.

Can My Business Be Formed as an LLC?

In Texas, a business can be formed using the form that it chooses. Opening an LLC just requires that the business founders file a form with the Secretary of State. However, fees are frequently required to form a LLC. The actions of LLC's as well as the costs for operating them are determined by Texas 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 may lead to increased profits, but the process may take some time.
