Protect Yourself

One of the biggest reasons to start an LLC is for liability protection. As a business owner, you are exposed to personal liability for the debts and obligations of the business. If you are a sole proprietor or general partner, your personal assets are at risk if the business cannot pay its debts. However, if you form an LLC, your personal assets are generally protected from creditors of the business.

Tax Benefits

Another great reason to form an LLC is for the tax benefits. LLCs are pass-through entities, which means that the business itself is not taxed on its profits. Instead, the taxes are "passed through" to the owners of the business, who then report the income (or loss) on their personal tax returns. This can provide a significant tax advantage, depending on your individual tax situation.

LLCs also offer a great deal of flexibility when it comes to how the business is run. LLCs can be managed by the owners (known as members), or they can appoint a manager to handle the day-to-day operations. This flexibility is not available with other business structures, such as corporations.

Asset Protection

Another important consideration is asset protection. If you own property or other assets in your name, they could be at risk if you are sued or have debts that you cannot pay. However, if you form an LLC and title the property in the LLC's name, it can provide some protection from creditors.
