It is not either a corporate or a partnership. It is a unique type of business structure that provides an alternative to these two conventional entities by merging the advantages of corporate entities like limited liability and the benefits of pass-through taxation, which is usually found in partnerships.

Limited Liability Companies are becoming more and more popular, and it’s evident the reasons. Alongside mixing the best characteristics of corporate and partnership structures, LLCs can avoid the significant negatives of both business structures.
