Ensure you're not on the hook for business liabilities.
LLCs have simpler record-keeping rules. Corporations are stricter.
You get to decide how you're taxed—as an LLC or a corporation—for potential savings.
No, but you might want one. Forming an LLC helps protect your personal assets. It also unlocks the ability for you to open bank accounts, enter into contracts, hire employees, and get business licenses and permits.
Articles of organization (the document needed to officially register your LLC with the state), our name check service (to confirm that your preferred business name is valid and available to be reserved), a digital welcome packet (which includes a step-by-step checklist to follow after your LLC is officially registered), and a customizable website (to help you develop a web presence for your new business).
State filing fees may apply.
Both protect owners so they're not personally on the hook for business liabilities or debts. But, key differences include how they're owned (LLCs have one or more individual members, and corporations have shareholders) and maintained (corporations generally have more formal record-keeping and reporting requirements).
You choose. Single-member LLCs can file as a sole proprietor. Multi-member LLCs can file as a partnership. Any LLC can file as a C or S corporation.
