What is Limited Liability Company (LLC)?
In the US, a Limited Liability Company, or LLC, is a certain form of a private limited company. Essentially, it consists of a business structure which makes the members of a company not personally liable for any company debts or liabilities. So, an LLC combines the pass-through taxation of a partnership with the limited liability of a corporation. While it is not a corporation itself, an LLC is a legal form of a company. Basically, it provides limited liability to owners.
There are several advantages to filing as an LLC. For example:
- With an LLC, you have some flexibility with taxes. In the beginning, the IRS won’t tax your company as a separate entity. Instead, there are a few options of how you can be taxed: through single member LLC, partners in an LLC, or filing as a corporation.
- LLCs experience flexibility in other ways, too. The state requires less paperwork and regulation forms for LLCs.
- Members in an LLC have liability protection. Therefore, creditors cannot go after members’ personal assets in the event of a lawsuit.
