What Exactly Is Limited Liability?

This term is used to describe the wall between your personal and business assets. For example, with limited liability, a business creditor would not be able to reach other types of assets.

With Limited Liability: Business creditors can only reach business assets and personal creditors can only reach personal assets.

Without Limited Liability: Business creditors can reach business and personal assets and personal creditors can reach personal and business assets as well.

Additionally, the owner’s liability for a business debt is limited to what the owner has invested in the company. This explanation allows you to see why having limited liability asset protection from an experienced attorney is so important. With more than three decades of experience dealing with limited liability asset protection, Banton Business & Legacy Law, LLP, should be your first choice in proper commercial legal representation.

Which Business Forms Lack Full Limited Liability?

Sole proprietorships, partnerships, and limited liability partnerships do not have full limited liability. This means that these types of companies have the most risk when it comes to limited liability asset protection.

The Benefits of LLCs and Corporations

Keep creditors from seizing your hard-earned assets with protection from being registered a Limited Liability Company, or LLC. LLCs enjoy the benefits of a corporation without double taxes. Having a LLC is a very effective way to transfer assets from your name to a tax-neutral, asset-protected entity. A personal judgment in court is not valid against a LLC’s assets. Being an LLC comes highly recommended by our qualified attorneys.

LLCs and corporations enjoy the most protection of their assets when compared to sole proprietorships, partnerships, and limited liability partnerships. If you are operating a business that is not a LLC or corporation, you should seriously consider converting your business to an LLC or corporation. Our expert business lawyers can accomplish this task in a tax-free manner and change your liability from unlimited, personal liability for your company’s debt to limited liability. Allow us to provide you with superior limited liability asset protection in St. Louis, Missouri.

Limited Liability Limited Partnerships Available Through Our Firm

This is just one form of limited liability asset protection that is available to you through Banton Business & Legacy Law, LLP. Being a LLLP guarantees that all of the owners will have limited liability.
