People are used to forming and growing LLC’s or C-Corp’s with multiple members or owners, respectively. However, it is completely fine to form and operate an LLC or C-Corp with a single member or owner.

  • A limited liability company (LLC) is a US business structure that offers the personal liability protection of a corporation with the pass-through taxation of a sole proprietorship or partnership.
  • C Corporation is a legal structure for a corporation in which the owners, or shareholders, are taxed separately from the entity. The taxing of profits from the business is at both corporate and personal levels, creating a double taxation situation.

Can I Form a Single Member LLC in Delaware?

The Answer: Yes.

One person (U.S. or foreign) can form a corporation or LLC in Delaware.

These are known as “single-member LLCs,” and can be used for everything from financing real estate transactions to solo consultant practices. However, it is still wise for single-member LLCs to have a written and executed Operating Agreement.
