The IRS created rules that allow limited liability companies to “check the box” and decide how the company will be taxed. A limited liability company may elect to be taxed as an S-Corporation, C-Corporation, Partnership, or disregarded entity. Each of these four (4) options have advantages and disadvantages for the business and its owners. When creating the business structure, we will help you evaluate which tax status will be best for you based on the tax needs of the business owners.
The Florida legislature empowers limited liability companies to make a choice to either be controlled by the members of the company or to be controlled by managers for the company. While having options provides versatility for the company’s leaders, this decision has a significant, long-term effect on who will be able to make decisions on behalf of the company and how those decisions will be made.
In order to operate in the state of Florida, every limited liability company must have Articles of Organization identifying such information as the name of the business, its address, its registered agent authorized to accept legal service for the company, and members or managers of the company.
To enjoy some of the protections of the limited liability company structure, it is best practice to have organizational documents like Operating Agreements and Shareholder Agreements. Operating Agreements are the limited liability company equivalent of corporate bylaws. Business owners can use an operating agreement to creatively and clearly set forth the internal operations of their business.
Fresh Legal Perspective will help craft the organizational documents that will be beneficial for your limited liability company.
