Limited Liability Company
LLCs (Limited Liability Companies) are a type of business structure that combines the liability protection of a corporation with the simplicity and flexibility of a partnership. Members of an LLC are not personally responsible for business debts or obligations, meaning their personal assets are protected.
LLCs are often preferred by small business owners and startups as they are easier to manage and have fewer formalities compared to corporations.

This means that each series can have its own assets, income, and debts separate from the others, and the liability of each series is limited to its assets. planning.
