Limited Liability Companies (LLCs)

About LLCs

A limited liability company (“LLC”) is the easiest way to launch your business.

That’s why the LLC is a common choice for new businesses and why its popularity is growing.

Benefits

An LLC can help protect you from being personally liable for your business’s liabilities. Using an LLC can give you peace of mind without requiring significant cost or complexity.

LLCs give you the flexibility to run your business with fewer formalities. They provide nearly identical benefits to corporations, but with less paperwork. This means that LLCs are simpler to start and operate than corporations. For example, unlike corporations, many LLCs are not required to have a board of directors or officers, or to use written resolutions or to keep corporate minutes.

LLCs are also easier and less expensive to form. This makes LLCs the best choice for many startups and small businesses. LLCs can also be eligible for “pass-through” or “partnership” taxation, avoiding the “double tax”. This makes them appealing to businesses of all sizes.
