Some people have asked me, “Can a holding company be an LLC?” The answer is, “Yes.” In fact, it is smart to make a holding company an LLC, as doing so protects it from disputes that lead to lawsuits or confrontations with creditors.
To better understand why a holding company can be an LLC, we need to give a definition to a holding company or entity.
A holding company is an entity that owns other companies, called subsidiaries. It may also own assets. Some of the assets may include equipment, real estate, or intellectual property.
Therefore, a holding company does not engage in a business of its own.
Instead, the subsidiaries, if involved in risky operations, rely on an LLC to keep them from being sued or falling prey to creditors.
