- earnings of an LLC are taxed only once
- earnings of an LLC are treated like earnings from a partnership, sole proprietorship & most S corporations
- an LLC owner’s liability is generally limited to the amount of $$$ which the person has invested in the LLC
- LLC members are offered the same limited liability protection as corporation’s shareholders
- LLCs are generally free to establish any organizational structures agreed upon by the members
- profit interests may be separated from voting interests
LLCs are very common with sellers. I think the main reason is that you’re not personally liable for a company’s liabilities. They're also much easier to establish and maintain compared to corporations. So this enables small businesses to gain limited protection similar to a corporation, but without the cost and complexity that corporations bring. Under a Limited Liability Company, you're not required to file a separate tax return for your business.

An operating agreement is arguably the most important document for owners of an LLC. It outlines the process by which the LLC operates within its rules and guidelines on its daily basis of operation. The operating agreement is specific to the LLC and the specific needs of its members and is binding to its terms. Whether or not it is required in your state, every LLC should have an operating agreement.
Shareholder agreements are made between owners of a corporation. This document serves as a safety net, that details the steps taken if a shareholder leaves the company, as well as outlines the percentage of ownership, restrictions on shares, and rights to purchase shares among many other criteria.
