Why might a business dissolve?

Voluntary dissolution of a business might occur for many reasons, with the most common being management deadlock or unprofitability. There is also involuntary dissolution, where a company’s state of incorporation dissolves a company if that company has failed to file annual reports with the state, pay annual fees and/or taxes, or is encountering bankruptcy.

Is the dissolution process different for a limited liability company (LLC) than for a corporation?

The existence of LLCs is less stable than that of corporations in the sense that an outside occurrence (such as the death of an owner) can end the company’s existence, depending on the operating agreement. Otherwise, the dissolution process is the same for both entities.
