The Articles of Organization must be prepared and filed, together with the necessary state filing fees and various initial fees to create an LLC.
It is not necessary to hire a lawyer to form an LLC. CCA can form an LLC for you, saving you time and money involved in hiring a lawyer. However, hiring a lawyer can help you if you need direction about what type of business form you should choose.
Once a business is formed as an LLC, the operating agreement indicates the particular holder's ownership percentage within the company.
The owners of LLC's are termed "members." The interests that a member of an LLC is represented by "interest" certificates or by the operating agreement. The LLC members can be the managers, and each one has authority according to the percent of their ownership in the company (except when members hire managers to operate the business).
An S corporation has restrictions that are not the same as those of the LLCs. For instance, the number of shareholders is limited to 75 within the S corporations, while there is no restriction to the number of members an LLC may have. Also, S corporations are owned by the shareholders and can issue stock, whereas LLCs cannot issue stock but offer "memberships" instead. Directors and officers manage S corporations; members entirely manage LLC's or hire managers to do so. Moreover, S corporations have an unlimited life span, while LLCs have a limited life (usually about 30 years).
