Why choose a Delaware company?

Company structure

  • Delaware LLC’s do not issue shares and therefore do not have shareholders. The owners of an LLC are referred to as members. An LLC must have a minimum of one Member (owner) or more. Each member of a Delaware LLC is liable only to the percentage of ownership in the LLC that they own. Members of an LLC can be individuals or corporate bodies. There are no limit on members allowed in a Delaware LLC.
  • The management of a Delaware LLC is formed on an agreement between its members. An LLC allows unique management structures, which form the economic relationship between the owners. While Delaware laws permit a Delaware LLC to be managed by its members, the law does not state that the members have be managers in the business. The Delaware LLC statute enables parties to define their business relationship in a written agreement. This written agreement is called the Freedom of Contract. Delaware Law only provides rules and regulations on matters which the parties have failed to agree. Delaware LLC’s provide unparalleled contractual flexibility compared to any other LLC statute. The structure of Delaware LLCs doe not allow for a Board of Directors.
