    Piercing the Veil of the Single Member Limited Liability Company ("SMLLC") Including Some Downsides to the Separate Entity for the Sole Proprietor (On Demand CLE)

    Although most believe that the LLC provides protection from personal liability, it can be easily separated as a separate entity for tax purposes and for liability as well. This protection no longer exists if corporate standards are applied by the court--thus clearing the way to pierce the veil. Learn about the contributing factors that courts typically consider when trying to pierce or properly preserve the LLC veil.

    Single Member SMLLCs benefit the sole proprietor by protecting the individual from liability for the debts of the company and facilitating a management structure that fits the proprietor's needs and business practices, while avoiding the added tax complexity which ordinarily accompanies "separate entity" status. However, preserving the LLC "veil" requires careful attention to structuring a flexible operation.

    Please join our faculty as they discuss:

    • The key issues for piercing an SMLLC, including:
      • The importance of maintaining separate accounting records and bank accounts
      • Whether "formalities" matter
      • Whether "disregarded entity" status under tax law matters
    • Creating agreements and communications with third parties which both protect the veil and avoid direct liability
    • Some downsides to the separate entity status of the SMLLC, such as barriers to bringing discrimination claims
