The Most Common Legal Entity – LLC

The most common legal entity is the limited liability corporation (LLC) or LTD (limited). Having an LLC company allows you to limit your personal liability or responsibility for company debts or lawsuits. The liability is limited to the amount you have invested or guaranteed to the company. An LLC is a separate entity from its owners or shareholders and a bank account can be opened in the LLC’s name; the company can own property; pay taxes in the name of the company not the name of the owners; assume liability; enter into contracts and be sued as an individual entity. The LLC allows for the legal protection of a corporation but with the tax benefits of a partnership, which is an ideal situation especially for new and small businesses.

Real Estate professionals incorporate their businesses offshore in order to deal with commercial real estate internationally. In this way real estate professionals can do property licensing via the offshore company and benefit from tax regulations in the country where the property was purchased. This also makes ongoing management of the property easier and ensures transparency for property investors.

Companies seeking to expand and operate internationally can establish branches across the globe by registering companies in various jurisdictions – the most viable way of doing this is through an offshore company.
