Eric J. Barr, Member, Fischer, Barr & Wissinger LLC was published in the December 2012 issue of Business Valuation Update.  His article is entitled, “Are Limited Liability Companies Worth More Than S Corporations?”

Although S corporations and limited liability companies pay no income taxes at the entity level, they are different in many ways.  This article explains how an entity’s status as an S corporation, LLC or partnership, collectively known as pass-through entities, may impact an owner’ rights, tax consequences, after-tax cash flows, and ultimately the value of a business equity ownership interest.
