Why incorporate or form an LLC in Georgia?

When you incorporate or form a Georgia LLC, a separate entity is created that is distinct from its owners. This protects the owners’ personal assets because, in most cases, they are responsible only for the amount of money personally invested or guaranteed. Plus, operating as an LLC or corporation can increase your tax planning options, as well as credibility with lenders, potential customers, vendors and employees. If your principal place of business is in Georgia, it is likely that forming there, rather than in another state, will reduce your initial and ongoing costs.
