A limited liability company (llc) is a separate legal entity from you personally. In order for the llc to provide protection to you and your personal assets, youmust first set-up the llc properly and follow all formalities. You should consult with a qualified business lawyer to advise you on the proper steps for doing this. In addition, you must keep the llc’s assets, liabilities, income and expenses separate from your personal assets, liabilities, income and expenses. The llc won’t protect you from your own personal acts of negligence or other personal actions. But, it can protect you from claims arising from the business conducted by the llc. A lot people woh have investment properties, such as rental homes, set-up an llc to own each separate property so the assets are “compartmentalized.”
