Forming an LLC(Limited Liability Company) limits the members’ (or owners’) personal liability for business actions. Members are liable, but usually only to the extent of their investment in the business. This means that member’s/owner’s personal assets cannot be used for settling business debts. This differs from a regular partnership, where all members or at least one is liable for company debts.
Limited liability companies are more simple to form and run than corporations. For example, a corporation requires a board of directors, officers, regular director’s meetings and shareholder’s meetings, but an LLC does not. It can be run day-to-day as though it were a partnership, yet it has has some of the key liability and tax protections of a corporation. Since there is no requirement for approval from a board before taking business action, LLC’s are much easier to run for business owners.
LLC’s are unique in that they have flexibility in how they operate. An LLC(Limited Liability Company), in its Operating Agreement, can decide to distribute profits in proportions other than investment percentages. In addition, one of the advantages of an LLC over an S Corp is that an LLC doesn’t have restrictions on the type and number of partners the way an S Corporation does. Members can even be foreign nationals or other companies, and there is no limit on the number of members.
One of the major benefits of a Limited Liability Company is that business profits are not separately federally taxed on top of the member’s taxes. The profits of the business passes through to the members, and is filed on each individual member’s tax return. Compare this to a C corporation, where the profits are taxed and then distributions are re-taxed on the individuals’ returns.
Because an LLC is a separate entity on its own, it, can apply for and build credit separately from the partners’ personal credit. This provides another great benefit to a limited liability company because it helps protects each member’s personal credit and makes bad personal credit less of an issue.
Although LLC’s are relatively new in many states of the US, they have been in operation overseas for over a century. Foreign investors are often more familiar and comfortable with the LLC structure. This can also be added to the benefits of a limited liability company. Also, because investing in an LLC is less imposing than bigger corporations, so they provide a great place for foreign investors to enter the U.S. market.

A limited liability company is a hybrid type of legal structure that provides the limited liability features of a corporation and the tax efficiencies and operational flexibility of a partnership. It is a state-level registration.

The owners of an LLC are referred to as members. Depending on the state, the members can consist of a single individual (one owner), two or more individuals, corporations or other LLCs.

Unlike shareholders in a corporation, LLCs are not taxed as a separate business entity. Instead, all profits and losses are passed through the business to each member of the LLC. LLC members report profits and losses on their personal federal tax returns, just like the owners of a partnership would.

Unlike sole proprietorships and partnerships, LLCs(Limited Liability Company Requirements) allow their owners to separate and protect their personal assets from business debts and liabilities. A sole proprietor or general partner remains personally liable for business obligations, leaving their home, car, and personal savings at risk.
In contrast, forming an LLC creates a business structure separate from its owners. In a properly formed and managed LLC(Limited Liability Company Requirements) , only business assets remain at risk in a judgment against the company. Owners can protect their personal savings and possessions from business debts.
Like a sole proprietorship or partnership, an LLC enjoys pass-through taxation. This means that owners (also known as “members”) report their share of profits or losses in the company on their individual tax returns. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) does not assess taxes on the company itself. This avoids the “double taxation” that general, or “C,” corporations experience. In a C corporation, the IRS taxes profits at the corporate level and dividends at the shareholder level.
Advantages of an LLC

Limited Liability. Members are protected from personal liability for business decisions or actions of the LLC(Limited Liability Company). This means that if the LLC(Limited Liability Company) incurs debt or is sued, members’ personal assets are usually exempt. This is similar to the liability protections afforded to shareholders of a corporation. Keep in mind that limited liability means “limited” liability – members are not necessarily shielded from wrongful acts, including those of their employees.

Less Recordkeeping. An LLC’s operational ease is one of its greatest advantages. Compared to an S-Corporation, there is less registration paperwork and there are smaller start-up costs.

Sharing of Profits. There are fewer restrictions on profit sharing within an LLC(Limited Liability Company), as members distribute profits as they see fit. Members might contribute different proportions of capital and sweat equity. Consequently, it’s up to the members themselves to decide who has earned what percentage of the profits or losses.
Disadvantages of an LLC(Limited Liability Company)

Limited Life. In many states, when a member leaves an LLC(Limited Liability Company), the business is dissolved and the members must fulfill all remaining legal and business obligations to close the business. The remaining members can decide if they want to start a new LLC(Limited Liability Company) or part ways. However, you can include provisions in your operating agreement to prolong the life of the LLC(Limited Liability Company) if a member decides to leave the business.

Self-Employment Taxes. Members of an LLC(Limited Liability Company) are considered self-employed and must pay the self-employment tax contributions towards Medicare and Social Security. The entire net income of the LLC(Limited Liability Company) is subject to this tax.

The Secretary of State may forward a renewal notice directly to your company or to your Registered Agent. Failure to file reports and pay franchise taxes by the state deadline can result in fines, notices, and the inability to conduct business.

State laws do not require LLCs(Limited Liability Company) to hold annual meetings or record meeting minutes. However, we recommend that LLCs(Limited Liability Company) update their records at least annually to reflect any changes in management or activities.

Almost all state, county, and local governments require LLCs(Limited Liability Company) to complete business license, permit, and tax registration applications before beginning to operate. Learn more about how our Business License Compliance Package can help your company.

Most states require LLCs to file annual reports/statement of information and pay franchise taxes to maintain their good standing. Failure to file annual reports and pay franchise taxes can result in fines, notices, and the inability to conduct business. Some states have additional publication requirements (NY, FL, and certain counties) for LLCs, Corporations, and DBAs. It is your responsibility to maintain the business after incorporating to stay compliant with local, state, and federal law.

Similar to an individual’s Social Security Number, a federal Employer Identification Number (EIN) identifies a business for tax purposes. Also called a Federal Tax ID, the EIN is issued by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).

The IRS requires corporations, Limited Liability Companies (LLCs) operating as partnerships, and all employers to obtain an EIN. This number is used for all tax filings the business makes. Banks, lenders, and business partners may also request your EIN.

An EIN and a Federal Tax Identification Number are the same, just different terminology for the same number.

The IRS usually requires corporations and Limited Liability Companies (LLCs) operating as partnerships to obtain an EIN. Any business that hires employees, including sole proprietorships and single-member LLCs, must also apply for an EIN.

Banks may require an EIN in order to open a business checking account. Also, you may need to list your EIN on business license, permit, and tax registration applications.

We can obtain an EIN for you for just $89. You can order it together when you incorporate through our website (click get started now). You can also order the EIN separately here.

My business partner and I decided start an LLC with S corporation benefits and did not know the first thing about setting it up. After looking at the paperwork involved we were very unsure about doing it ourselves.

Thankfully we found EZ incorporate early on. They broke down the process into step by step pieces that were easy for us amateurs to understand.
