Why form an LLC or Incorporate?


LLC Formation or Incorporation Filing Service


Generally, if you do not file to form your business as a specific entity type, one is assigned to it by default. If there is only one owner, it is a Sole Proprietorship and if there are multiple owners, it is a General Partnership. Minimal paperwork can be an advantage with these entity types, but they also leave your personal assets at risk.

Filing to form an LLC or Corporation separates your personal assets from your business. So if your business is ever sued by a creditor or unhappy customer, you're at less risk of losing your home or other personal assets because of it. That's one less thing for you to worry about.

Plus, with an "LLC" or "Inc." after it, your business instantly looks more professional to customers, vendors, and peers.
