The benefit of a LLC is that owners, regardless of ownership, are not liable for "most" corporate debt or liabilities. Now, regardless of how much or how little you own, if you act as an officer you could be help liable for some financial debts if you acted negligently. This is called piercing the corporate veil.
I hope I answered your question with sufficient detail, accuracy, and completeness based on the facts communicated. I would be happy to expand my answer should you need clarification; before you rate my answer. Accordingly, please rate my answer, based on thoroughness and accuracy, rather than any good or bad news/content. We (the experts) are only compensated when an answer is accepted and rated. I appreciate your prompt response. Sincerely, ***** ***** Breecher, CPA.
