A limited liability company (LLC) is an accepted business form in all US States. It is an independent legal structure separate from their owners. And it separates ones personal assets with the business debts. It is taxed similarly to a sole proprietorship (if one owner) or a partnership (if multiple owner). It is governed by the Limited Liability Company statutes, formation document and Limited Liability Company (LLC) operating agreements. The owners of an LLC are called members rather than partners or shareholders, the members are drawn upon an operating agreement. And there is no limit to number of owners. And there is no requirement to hold annual meetings or record minutes. There are certain demerits as well in having a LLC, as it cannot engage in corporate income splitting to lower tax liability and it cannot issue stocks as well.


Draft a business plan
A business plan serves as a blueprint to all aspects of the business, including strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats. Also, it will help to understand market analysis, organization and management, and the funding required. More
Choose a name for the business
There can be variations in the name of LLC but it is wise enough to add LLC in the name of the firm to send an indication as to the firm is registered and doesn’t violate any trademark. More
