Forming a Limited Liability Company (LLC)

One of the most popular business structures among small-scale business organizations is the Limited Liability Company (LLC). This business organization provides limited liability protection to its owners. It allows business owners to be free from an enormous deal of formalities normally imposed on other types of business ventures. LLCs are likewise eligible for “pass-through” taxation wherein the company's income taxes are only reflected on each of the owner's respective personal tax returns and not at the business level. Starting an LLC in Texas is easy, and our company will be able to assist you from its inception. First, all you need to do is tell us about your business, and our company will take the complexities involved in forming your LLC. Second, we will file the necessary paperwork for you to the Secretary of State using the information you have provided us. Lastly, you just have to wait to receive your documents at the comfort of your home, as you will receive your completed LLC package by mail once the state of Texas has approved your incorporation documents. LLCs provide personal asset protection, which shields business owners from personal liabilities over the business's debts. Unlike corporations, it is not burdened with the same stringent recordkeeping requirements. Whether you choose to have a foreign, single-member managed, L3C or multiple-member managed LLC; our firm will be able to assist you.

Features of a Limited Liability Company

  • Management flexibility

    The members of the LLC can determine how the company is viewed as a taxable entity in the state of Texas. LLCs can either be taxed federally as a partnership or as a sole proprietorship, depending on whether it is a multi-member or single-member LLC. The members may likewise opt to be taxed as a C- or S-corporation.

  • Personal asset protection

    The individual partners' personal assets in an LLC are considered distinct from the company's personal interest invested. This only means that whatever the business has incurred in debts and liabilities, the same is solely the business's liabilities and not that of the members.

  • Minimal formalities required

    LLCs are burdened with very few regulations like compliance with annual reports filing and paying all applicable state-level taxes, unlike other business structures that need to comply with stringent regulations. Beyond this formation process, our team will help you remain compliant regardless of the stage your company is in.

  • Pass-through taxation

    An LLC is taxed on a "pass-through" basis, which means that the profits and losses of LLCs are paid out by each of the individual owners and are only reflected on their personal income tax returns and not to that of the company. The only difference is that LLCs with multiple owners must file a purely informational tax return for their business while a single-member LLC does not.

The following are included in our LLC package:

  • Verification of company name availability.
  • Preparation of your Articles of Incorporation.
  • Your own dedicated Hayes Hunter PC employee.
  • Document filing with the Secretary of State.
  • Online access to your LLC documents.
  • Certification of Incorporation.
  • Delivery of Documents.

Advantages of a Limited Liability Company (LLC)

  • Credibility. Forming an LLC may help your business be perceived as a more legitimate business than a sole proprietorship or a general partnership.
  • Consent to add owners. To increase ownership in the company or add new members, prior written consent from all LLC members must be obtained.
  • Minimal ongoing formalities. In general, LLCs have less annual paperwork and do need to comply with the meeting requirements imposed on C corporations or S corporations.
  • Limited liability protection. The LLC owners are not held personally liable for business debts and other liabilities of the company.
  • Flexibility in allocating profits with its owners. The owners of the LLC enjoy flexibility in apportioning profits and losses among its members.
  • Pass-through taxation. A typical LLC does not pay taxes on the business level; instead, any income or losses is reported on the owners' personal tax return. Whatever the tax due is paid at the individual level.
  • No restrictions on ownership. LLCs typically have no or very few ownership restrictions imposed, unlike an S-corporation, which is limited to 100 owners.
  • Flexible management. LLC owners enjoy flexibility in structuring their company management.
  • Availability of different membership classes. An LLC is not limited to one class of ownership as with S-corporations. As a matter of fact, it can have different membership classes.
