What are the benefits and drawbacks of an LLC?

Florida business owners start out their ventures in the same way: by picking a business model. Each model offers different benefits and drawbacks. What you pick depends on the benefits you need most and the drawbacks you mind the least. Today, we will take a look at some of the benefits and drawbacks of LLCs. 

A Limited Liability Corporation, or an LLC, is one type of business model. It benefits up-and-coming business owners in many different ways. For one, it has one of the lowest startup costs. This is great if you do not have enough for a more expensive model. There is also less paperwork involved. The structure of an LLC is more flexible than some of the other options as well. This makes it good if you value that flexibility. 

Another big perk is that the agreements and assets are in the name of the business. This means if something goes wrong with operation, you are not held liable. The company itself is liable for debts or actions of the business on a whole. 

If you choose to organize your business as an LLC, you will not face many drawbacks. There are ongoing expenses. This is true of most business models, though, including partnerships and corporations. The LLC itself must also file tax returns.
