Frequently Asked Questions


An LLC or limited liability company, is a type of legal entity that has become popular in recent years. 

LLCs offer the liability protection of a corporation but with flexibility in profit allocation and management. They are easy to set up and offer privacy protection for business owners plus increased credibility.

The amount of time it takes to form an LLC is dependent on the state of formation.  Standard processing time is typically between three and fourteen business days. Some states offer expedited processing, making the time to form an LLC as little as 24 hours.

Business owners often choose to form their LLC in their home state, although some choose business-friendly states such as Delaware, Nevada, or Wyoming.

If you’re unsure which state is right for your business, talk to your accountant or attorney.
