How Organizing An LLC Is Different Than Setting Up A Trust

It is best to think of organizing an LLC as starting a business, rather than contributing to a fund. After assigning property or assets to the LLC, the organizing member or members are allowed to distribute a percentage of the ‘shares’ in the LLC at a discounted value. Members of the LLC spread tax liabilities across all members on a pro rata basis, which often drops individual members into a lower tax bracket.

Forming an LLC is also an excellent way to protect your personal assets from liability in the event of a lawsuit. Members of an LLC technically hold private shares in the company, rather than monetary assets. Talk to us about personal litigation risk management strategies.
