Choosing The Right Business Entity
Choosing the right business entity can have a number of positive impacts on your business, including reducing your exposure to personal liability and minimizing taxes.
Our lawyers can help you explore the pros and cons of all the business entity options available to you, including:
- Limited liability company (LLC): Protects owners from personal liability. Also avoids double taxation.
- C-corporation: A separately taxed entity that must file a federal tax return. Owners may face double taxation, as corporate income and dividends are taxed.
- S-corporation: Similar to a C-corporation, without double taxation. Taxes are paid by individuals, not at the corporate level.
- Sole proprietorship: Has a single owner with no legal distinction between owner and business.
Mistakes in business organization can place your business on a shaky foundation. We are here to ensure that your business is in the best possible position to have a successful future.
