The Limited Liability Company, or LLC, is a legal business structure that seeks to combine advantages from across several 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 viewed more like a sole proprietorship or partnership for tax purposes. Like a corporation, the LLC can also have an endless amount of shareholders, called members. Unlike a corporation however, if a member dies, files for bankruptcy, or otherwise leaves the LLC, the company is dissolved. 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.

Finding the right business structure for your company might take some effort, but it will ultimately make your business more profitable.
