Corporate Legal Questions and Answers

Corporate

LLC

Connecticut

Asked on Jun 1, 2023

How does an LLC work?

I am in the process of starting a business and have been advised to form an LLC. I am not familiar with the structure of an LLC, and am interested in learning more about how it works and the benefits it provides. I would like to understand the legal implications of forming an LLC and how it can help protect my personal assets.

Thomas L.

Answered Jun 30, 2023

Tax: An LLC is a "pass-through" entity, so it does not pay income taxes. Instead, its owners pay income taxes on their share of the LLCs profits. So it avoids the double taxation of corporations (the corporate pays income taxes and then the stockholders pay income taxes on their dividends). 2. An LLC is controlled by its "Operating Agreement" (similar to corporate bylaws). An LLC can be set up as a limited partnership (passive investors, and the Managers have 100% control - e.g. real estate), a corporation (the investors get to vote once a year for a "Board of Managers" - a business with significant investment), or a partnership (no board, the owners all vote on every issue - a professional services firm). The choice depends on the nature of the business.

LLC Operating Agreement

Texas

Asked on Oct 5, 2022

Does a single member llc need an operating agreement?

I'm in Texas. I know operating agreements aren't required everywhere.

CRAIG C.

Answered Nov 8, 2022

Texas has no requirement for an operating agreement. However, I generally advise all LLCs to have one. If nothing else, it assists as part of the "paper trail" in proving that the LLC was a separate entity from the sole member and helps to maintain liability protection.

It truly depends on the context in which they are being used. Both clauses outline the terms under which you get out of the contract.

Contracts Counsel was incredibly helpful and easy to use. I submitted a project for a lawyer's help within a day I had received over 6 proposals from qualified lawyers. I submitted a bid that works best for my business and we went forward with the project.

View Trustpilot Review

I never knew how difficult it was to obtain representation or a lawyer, and ContractsCounsel was EXACTLY the type of service I was hoping for when I was in a pinch. Working with their service was efficient, effective and made me feel in control. Thank you so much and should I ever need attorney services down the road, I'll certainly be a repeat customer.

View Trustpilot Review

I got 5 bids within 24h of posting my project. I choose the person who provided the most detailed and relevant intro letter, highlighting their experience relevant to my project. I am very satisfied with the outcome and quality of the two agreements that were produced, they actually far exceed my expectations.
