Is A Limited Liability Company Right For My Business?
All business is critical to our economy. The entrepreneurial spirit and willingness to create a service or product to meet the needs of a community is one of the many characteristics that help our economy grow. There are many opportunities to create a business that protects your rights without taking all your time away from the very product or service you seek to market.
A limited liability company (LLC) is a business entity authorized under the Ohio Revised Code, which provides limited liability protection to the owners or “members” of the LLC from the debts and obligations of the LLC. This limited liability protection is similar to that offered by a corporation. However, an LLC provides for more flexibility and less formality than a traditional corporation. An LLC can prevent income from being taxed to the LLC directly. In other words, by working with your accountant, we can use an LLC to help you save on taxes.
The benefits of an LLC include:
- An LLC can be formed with as few as one member or as many members as you determine is necessary to meet your business needs while still providing limited liability protection to the member(s).
- An LLC allows a sole proprietor to protect his or her personal assets from prospective creditors of the business.
- LLCs help existing corporations avoid the costs associated with the numerous corporate formalities.
