LLC ADVANTAGES:

A limited liability company (LLC) has many advantages as a form of business entity:

  • Pass-through taxation - under the default tax classification, profits taxed at the member level, not at the LLC level (i.e., no double taxation).

  • Limited liability - the owners of the LLC, called "members," are protected from liability for acts and debts of the LLC.

  • With "check-the-box" taxation, an LLC can elect to be taxed as a sole proprietor, partnership, S-corp or corporation, providing much flexibility.

  • Can be set up with just one natural person involved or, in some states, one owner which may be an entity itself.

  • No requirement of an annual general meeting for shareholders.

  • No loss of power to a board of directors (although an operating agreement may provide for centralization of management power in a board or similar body).

  • LLCs are enduring legal business entities, with lives that extend beyond the illness or even death of their owners, thus avoiding problematic business termination or sole proprietor death.

  • Much less administrative paperwork and recordkeeping.

  • Membership interests of LLCs can be assigned, and the economic benefits of those interests can be separated and assigned, providing the assignee with the economic benefits of distributions of profits/losses (like a partnership), without transferring the title to the membership interest.

WHAT IS LLC:

The letters "LLC" stand for the words limited liability company.

Some people mistakenly believe that the letters LLC can also mean limited liability corporation but an LLC is not a corporation. All of the LLC statutes in the United States refer to the entity only as a limited liability company.

 

TART APPLICATION

 

HOW LONG IS THE LLC REGISTRATION VALID FOR:

The LLC registration is valid until Articles of Dissolution are filed with the Division Of Corporations. The LLC will be administratively dissolved if no annual report is filed with the Division Of Corporations. All LLCs registered in Florida must maintain a current mailing address with the Division. Address changes must be made by letter or other written communication to the Division of Corporations.

LLC Taxation:

A limited liability company (LLC) is not recognized by the IRS as a taxing entity. So an LLC pays income taxes based on the membership structure of the company. A single-member LLC is considered a disregarded entity, and pays income tax as a sole proprietorship, through the member's personal tax return. A multiple-member LLC pays income taxes as a partnership.

 

An LLC can also elect to pay income tax as what the IRS calls "an association taxable as a corporation." This election is made on IRS Form 8832.

WILL I RECEIVE ANY DOCUMENTS IN THE MAIL:


Upon registration Florida Registrations will email your Articles of Organization. Those will be sent as a .pdf attachment to the email address you list on the online application. You can use those documents for any legal reason to proof the status of your LLC, such as opening a bank account or applying for licenses and permits. Nothing will be sent via mail.

DO YOU NEED A REGISTERED AGENT:


Florida requires that an individual, or service company, be responsible for receiving important legal and tax documents on behalf of the LLC.
This service is provided by an "agent" of the LLC who is "registered" within Florida, thus the term "Registered Agent."
Registered agent is simply a person or service company that is designated to receive documentation on behalf of the LLC.
Any member or manager of the LLC can act as Registered Agent for the LLC. If registering a single member LLC, this mameber can act as regestered agent for the LLC if he or she resides within the state of Florida.
An outside company can also act as registered agent for the LLC. Our affiliate Opus Virtual Offices provides registered agent services. For more information you can access their website by clicking on this link:

RESTRICTIONS TO AN LLC NAME:


There are restrictions on the words that a LLC can contain. However, most of the restrictions are in place to ensure that your LLC name does not mislead the general public or imply that the business is a different type of entity than it actually is. For example, you cannot make your LLC name "Acme Incorporated" if you have not filed the necessary documents with your Secretary of State to legally form a Corporation. Likewise, you cannot include "DBA" in your LLC name if you haven't yet filed the documents to legally form a DBA.
