A limited liability company is a legal structure that can provide personal asset protection.
With a limited liability company, you receive the benefit of flow-through taxation. This allows you to continue to claim your business profits and losses on your personal income tax return.
If someone was to institute a legal action against the limited liability company, only the assets that are owned by the company itself would be subject to attachment. Your personal assets would not be in play, so you would enjoy asset protection benefits.
You may hear about the asset protection benefits and keep the information in your back pocket as it were. If and when you feel as though you may be sued, you could then create a limited liability company to protect your assets, right?
This is not the way that it works. It is illegal to take action to shield your personal resources after you find out that you are being targeted by litigants. This would be construed as a fraudulent transfer or a fraudulent conveyance, and you should steer clear of this activity if you want to stay on the right side of the law.
