Number of LLCs
How many LLCs are there?
Even though there is no information on the total number of limited liability companies (LLCs) in the world, an estimate can be calculated through the analysis of data retrieved from The World Bank, Enterprise Surveys (published by International Finance Corporation) and the Statistics of Income (SOI) Bulletin (published by the IRS). According to these sources, over 8% of the companies world-wide are LLC (or limited partnership). Since there are about 43.8 million companies registered in the world, the number of LLCs should be about 3.8 million.
