Benefits of a California LLC
Why choose LLC vs Corporation for new business in California?
Limited Liability Protection
LLCs are treated as a separate legal entity, giving members limited liability protection of their personal assets.
Taxes are not paid at the business level – instead, income and loss are reported on the members’ tax return.
Some LLCs are member-managed, similar to general partnerships, other LLCs are manager-managed.
LLCs generally have few state-mandated requirements with minimal accompanying paperwork.
