LLC (Limited Liability Company) is the US-specific form of a private limited company that is similar to Korea’s LLC. BuildBlock encourages investment in the US real estate via LLC for 3 reasons. Firstly, you can save on taxes. In the US, an LLC is not required to pay federal taxes. Instead, the LLC investor must pay an income tax, which is a lot less than other forms of company or non-company structure. Second, the process is much simpler. Compared to “Direct acquisition of overseas real estate” where one acquires a property overseas directly without an LLC, “direct overseas investment” is much simpler in documents and management. Third, it’s the accountability of an LLC. In managing real estate properties post-investment, numerous small and big accidents could incur, where tenants get injured from estate facilities. Even at an injury with the damage larger than the investment, LLC is a limited company that is responsible for up to the investment money. Although this is the worst scenario, it’s worthwhile to take a look for an investment decision.
