Respected Vero Beach and Sebastian Florida LLC Attorneys
LLC is an acronym for Limited Liability Corporation. Florida has its own LLC statute. The statute is called – the Florida Revised Limited Liability Company Act. The statute defines how LLCs can be formed and how they can operate.
Our seasoned business formation lawyers in Vero Beach and Sebastian understand these requirements and the proper ways to implement them. Generally, to start an LLC corporation you must file articles of organization with the Florida Department of State. You must also advertise the formation of the LLC with your local business.
Some companies such as banks and insurance companies cannot operate as an LLC. The owners of an LLC are called members. The members of an LLC run the business – as opposed to corporations that are run by a board of directors.
The advantages of an LLC
The pros of using an LLC include:
- LLCs are generally used because they combine the limited liability advantage of a corporation with the pass-through taxation benefit of a partnership or a sole proprietorship.
- An LLC is usually dissolved based on the terms of the operating agreement or the death of a member (unless other provisions are made – such as an agreement by the remaining members to continue).
- Generally, it’s easier to run an LLC than it is to run an S corporation.
Many professional service businesses use an LLC business structure.
