FORMING AN LLC (LIMITED LIABILITY COMPANY)
The limited liability company entity is a relatively new form of business organization in California. The authorization of the LLC form of business under state statutes is intended to give flexibility to businesses in meeting their tax and business objectives.
A limited liability company combines some of the best characteristics of the partnership and corporation while eliminating some of their less desirable characteristics. The owners (called "members") of a limited liability company, like shareholders of a corporation, are not generally liable for the debts of the business. Yet, like a partnership, double taxation is avoided because the profits of the company are not subject to income tax liability imposed upon the company. Furthermore, unlike limited partners in a limited partnership, members of a limited liability company may actively participate in management without becoming subject to unlimited personal liability. The members of an LLC enjoy significant freedom under California law to fix their rights and obligations by agreement as to most matters.
One or more persons may form a limited liability company by signing and filing articles of organization with the California Secretary of State. If the members conduct business prior to filing the articles of organization, they run a substantial risk of having the LLC treated as a general partnership with liability of all members for all obligations incurred prior to filing the articles.
The articles of organization must disclose basic information about the limited liability company for public inspection, including, among other items:
The name of the California LLC;
The name and address of an agent for service of legal process on the limited liability company. (This agent may be an individual, a California limited liability company or corporation, or a foreign limited liability company or corporation authorized to do business in California);
If the company will be managed by:
More than one manager;
All limited liability company members.
The latest date, if any, on which the limited liability company must dissolve.

why prep xpress
-Californians have long desired a Legal Document Preparation Company that embodies the core principals of a concierge service. It has become increasingly difficult and extremely time consuming for a person to navigate the California Judicial System on their own. Even after you spend countless hours attempting to prepare your own documents, you have to spend another full day in Court trying to file your documents. If your documents are rejected, guess what, you start all over again. Sounds like fun right?
Other Companies have attempted to fill this void to no avail. While they will assist you in preparing your documents, they leave it up to you to file and subsequently serve your documents. You still end up confused and frustrated with the process. Prep Xpress has formulated a system that allows you to handle everything from the comfort of your home.
