What is an LLC?
For those of you who aren’t aware, a Limited Liability Company, referred to in short as an LLC, is a form of a private limited company. It indicates a business structure that has the limited liability of a corporation, as in the owners are protected from the debts or liabilities of the company. The assets of an individual and the company are considered separate. An LLC is typically simpler to set up than a corporation, while having similar protections afforded to its owners. This structure typically views taxation of the business as taxation of the owner, which prevents double-taxation on its owners.
When you are launching a new company in the United States, you need to decide whether it will be a sole proprietorship, a partnership, an LLC, or a corporation. There are benefits and cons to registering as one over the other and you need to decide which business structure is most suitable to your needs.
