Limited Liability Company (LLC) Laws in Massachusetts

Formulating a limited liability company has been an option in Massachusetts since 1996. It is an ideal option for small to mid-sized businesses with multiple owners. If you are considering filing as a limited liability company in Massachusetts, Shapiro Law Group, PC, can help. Our firm has the business law experience and knowledge needed to help clearly explain the facts about forming an LLC and to help you decide if that is the best option for your business. As an LLC, a business can have as many members as you would like. An LLC is much like a partnership but it protects all owners from liability, just as stockholders are protected from company debt under other designations. An LLC can be dissolved in the event of a death, withdraw, or bankruptcy of a member. However, there can be a majority vote of remaining members to continue the business as an LLC.


There are many advantages to filing for an LLC designation over other options in Massachusetts. One major benefit is the tax filing process. With an LLC, the tax allocation rules mean the earnings of the LLC are only taxed once. Another advantage is the flexibility of management. The members of the LLC can adopt any type of organization style and designate managers as the members see fit. One disadvantage can be the fact that LLC’s are relatively new and there can be more paperwork involved than with a normal partnership.
