Advantages in Raising Investor Capital. A New York LLC offers key vantages in the area of raising capital and ownership.

Every business owner should incorporate their business, since there are more advantages than drawbacks. Incorporating your company is certainly a good answer to protect yourself from those business lawsuits that come around so often.

Limited Liability Company – LLC

The LLC is a relatively new type of hybrid business structure that is now permissible in most states. It is designed to provide the limited liability features of a corporation and the tax efficiencies and operational flexibility of a partnership.

Formation is more complex and formal than that of a general partnership. The owners are members, and the duration of the LLC is usually determined when the organization papers are filed. The time limit can be continued if desired by a vote of the members at the time of expiration.

Section 206 of the Limited Liability Company Law of the state of New York states:

Upon the effectiveness of the initial Articles of Organization of an LLC, a copy of same or a notice containing the substance thereof shall be published once each week for six successive weeks, in two newspapers of the county in which the office of the LLC is located, one must be a daily newspaper and the other a weekly newspaper designated by the County Clerk.

Summary

We will form your limited liability company under the personal direction of a qualified attorney who makes certain that all requirements are met. When forming an LLC, we strongly recommend the owners obtain the maximum protection permitted by current laws. The best way to protect yourself is to enter into an Indemnification Agreement and Operating Agreement at the time of the filing of the LLC. For example, you may include in your Articles of Organization a special provision to protect the officers from any actions they take on behalf of the company called “Indemnification”. With an Indemnification and Covenant Not to sue Agreement, the LLC agrees to indemnify and hold harmless its operating managers (those who act as agents of the LLC and represent the LLCs interest in day-to-day business transactions).

Once the Indemnification Provisions are in effect, the LLC is responsible should there be any legal action taken against its representative for actions taken on behalf of the LLC. In other words, the company would have to pay any legal fees or liabilities assessed against its management staff. In the State of New York, an Operating Agreement is required and must be adopted within 90 days after the filing of the Articles of Organization. The Operating Agreement sets forth, the business of the Limited Liability Company, its general operation and conduct of its affairs including its rights, powers, preferences, limitations or responsibilities of its members, managers, employees or agents.
