I'm creating an LLC (need advice)

13 posts in this topic

I have a couple different ideas/companies that I am working on and would love some input from people on forming an llc. Any do's and dont's I should look out for?

As of write now I am going to have 2 DBAs under this llc each DBA is me partnering with a different developer to deliver me a product/application. I have basic agreements in place between them as far as cost and revenue splits.

Since you are having partners, make sure that you have a legal and official business model and operating agreement. That's really all you need to cover your ass. The actual formation with the state is very simple.

thanks. Ive been reading up on and have begun drafting an operating agreement.

Can I limit partnership in the other DBAs? Can I be specific about who was what right to what profits?

My brother and I set up an LLC. Depending on the type of business you have, it may be better to incorporate in another state.

We were just creating a web company, so we incorporated in Wyoming because it was super cheap and there are no taxes.

You can. You can even have separate operating agreements for each dba

Yeah I'll be delivering some hosted applications so perhaps I need to look at Wyoming. Doesn't really matter where we are.

Whole thing took like a week and cost $100 or $125.

All done online/through the mail.

I was an LLC. Just used legalzoom and they were fine.

But it was tax advantageous to set up as an S-Corp, pay myself a salary and then take distributions. Saves like $6k a year so not earth shaking but still. That is where I am now.

I guess what i am saying is investigate other corporate structures and find a really good tax attorney.

    • Of course, he's so massive he has his own gravitational pull. 
    • You miss the point. Taylor was here before. We picked him because of what he could do for our wide receivers not because he had some great knowledge no other person had on the staff. Shula and Rivera and Gettleman studied multiple college systems for months before signing Taylor or drafting McCaffrey or Curtis and would have drafted the same whether Taylor was here or not. They liked the way Taylor developed McCaffrey which showed his talent but Stanford's offense wasn't Taylors idea or unique to him. Shula has a connection to Taylor as early as when Shula was at Alabama.  The debate was whether Taylor was chosen to replace Shula because Shula didn't know what to do to run a college offense and if he screwed up Taylor would replace him. And that Taylor was the reason and most influential in getting McCaffrey. I said it wasn't even close to the truth and this plan predated Taylor and was more thorough and we'll thought out. Everything since then just confirms I was right once again like usual.
