Resolved Question:

I'm going to be starting a business with a couple friends, and we are wondering if a PLLC would be better then a LLC for what we are going to be doing and visa versa. We are going to be doing computer repair, WildBlue Satellite Installs/Repairs, and Networking.

I do not think there would be any advantage to a PLLC over an LLC.


Some States require certain professionals (doctors, lawyers, accountants, etc) to register as a PLLC. The PLLC is intended for those that must have a license to engage in thier work.


I would elect the LLC, which has better liability protection.


I do not even think you would allowed to elect the PLLC, because your work does not require a licence (correct me if I am wrong).
