Why Create an Oregon LLC?

The state offers numerous business benefits, including several tax incentives, provided your LLC meets specific criteria. For example, if you start a business in certain Oregon counties, you may qualify for the Oregon Investment Advantage. The program allows you to deduct taxable income related to business operations for a specified period of time.

For most people wanting to start a business, creating an Oregon limited liability company (LLC) is the fastest and easiest way. An LLC is an ideal business entity for startups and small- to medium-sized businesses, granting you the advantages and protections that larger Oregon corporations benefit from, but with simplified rules and regulations.

If an LLC isn't the right entity for the type of business you're starting, you may want to consider forming an Oregon Corporation instead.

Benefits of starting an Oregon LLC:

  • Protect your personal assets from your business liability and debts

  • Simple to create, manage, regulate, administer and stay in compliance

  • Easily file your taxes and discover potential advantages for tax treatment
