Limited Liability Companies provide personal asset protection, shielding business owners from being personally liable for business debts. And unlike corporations, LLCs aren’t beholden to the same strict recordkeeping requirements as corporations.
There are multiple types of LLCs, such as foreign, member-managed, L3C, and single- or multiple-member managed LLCs. Swyft Filings can help you determine which business structure is best for your new business.
For business that choose an LLC business structure, personal assets are considered separate from the personal interest invested in the company. This means that debts and liabilities incurred are the responsibility of the business rather than its members.
LLC are taxed on a pass-through basis, meaning the profits and losses of LLCs are paid out by each individual owner and are only reflected on their personal income tax returns. LLCs with multiple owners, however, must file a purely informational tax return for their business, while LLCs held by a single member do not.
Members of an LLC are able to determine how the company is viewed as a taxable entity. LLCs are either federally taxed as a partnership or a sole proprietorship, depending on whether it’s a multi- or single-member LLC. The business may also, however, choose to be taxed as an S or C corporation.
Unlike other business structures, LLCs are beholden to very few regulations, such as filing an annual report and paying any applicable state-level taxes. Beyond the online LLC formation process, Swyft Filings helps businesses remain compliant regardless of the stage a company is in.

Despite being a relatively new option, the limited liability company (LLC) is now one of the most popular business structures among smaller organizations. While allowing business owners to remain free from a great deal of the regulations imposed on other types of companies, it still provides limited liability protection for its owners (members). This means that the personal assets of an LLC's ownership cannot be collected to fulfill the debts of the business.If you need to do more information gathering before deciding which company structure is best for your business, read more about the strongest differentiators between LLCs, corporations, general partnerships, and sole proprietorships using our Entity Type Comparison.

We can take care of this process for you, saving you time, effort, and allowing you to focus on developing your business – not filing paperwork. Lean on our expertise to ensure all paperwork is filed correctly the first time.
Though it typically only takes between 7 and 10 days to form an LLC, the length of the formation process depends on the state in which you’re starting a business. For an additional fee, expedited processing can be requested so that your application is reviewed before others.

The name you choose for your LLC is an important decision, as it will be how you represent yourself to potential associates and clients. With that in mind, it is advisable that you take some time to craft a name that you will be proud to have representing you and your business.
Your name must be unique, and not deceptively similar, to any other trademarked name or business. It is also required that your name not be used to intentionally misrepresent the products or services you offer. For LLCs, nearly all states will also require you to add a signifier of your limited liability status, such as "LLC" or "L.L.C." to the end of your company's name. You may be able to operate under a name other than your formal LLC name by applying for and using a dba.

There is no minimum requirement as to the number of owners (also referred to as members) that an LLC must have. At the federal level, single-member LLCs qualify for pass-through taxation, however this is not always true at the state level.
