View Full Version : Moving from a Sole Proprietorship to LLC

01-30-2014, 02:38 PM
What's the best way to move from a sole proprietorship to an LLC? I'm starting my own landscaping company but I'm afraid that due to the nature of the work, legal trouble could be possible. Apparently, a sole proprietorship allows someone to sue me personally. I'm located in Delaware.

Thanks for any help!

In that line of work, you certainly want to protect yourself from personal liability. An LLC or a Subchapter S corporation would make sense. Considering the nature of this work, I would consult an attorney to get things rolling. The state of Delaware, however, does have general information and the necessary forms available here (http://revenue.delaware.gov/information/faqs_llc.shtml).

Good luck!

My suggestion to you is consider type of work and for all details consult attorney.

No don't consult attorneys for this. Just register your LLC. The attorney will tell you the same thing and charge you a lot of money.

Multiple small businesses receive their start as a sole proprietorship. After all, it’s the default business formation. If you’re a single business owner and nevermore filed any official formation paperwork with the state, then you can opt for sole proprietorship.
