Can I lose my limited liability if I fall into business debt?

Asked 2 years ago

The LLC business structure is one of its best qualities, and that’s why I have already decided that I might pick it for my business. I still have one concern about it though. If it were to happen that there was business-related debt, I know that my home, car, and other personal assets would be protected. However, in this case, would business debt result in me losing my limited liability ?

It is possible that you could lose your limited liability in some cases. Some examples of when your limited liability is at risk include:

  • Using the funds acquired through a creditor for non-business purchases
  • Failure to pay employees
  • Comingling personal and business assets
  • Signing contracts in only your name, without reference to your business
