Why Create a Maryland LLC?

The state offers several business incentives, such as programs for women- and minority-owned businesses. In addition, numerous tax credits are available, including some aimed at specific verticals. Business owners can take advantage of these many programs to start and sustain their companies.

For many entrepreneurs, the fastest and easiest way to start a business is by creating a Maryland limited liability company (LLC), a business entity ideal for startups and small- to medium-sized businesses. You get the advantages and protections of a larger corporation with much simpler rules and regulations.

Benefits of starting a Maryland LLC:

  • Separating and limiting your personal liability from your business liability and debts

  • Quick and simple filing, management, compliance, regulation and administration

  • Easy tax filing and potential advantages for tax treatment

  • No franchise tax

  • Low cost to file ($100)

We also cover the various ways you’ll interact with the Maryland State Department of Assessments and Taxation (also known as Maryland SDAT), filing your LLC and your registration needs.
