Different Kinds of Businesses
It’s important to set up your business the correct way. Our attorneys can help ease some of the headache by helping you determine which business will suit your needs.
Here are some of the most common types of businesses:
An LLC is a limited liability company. It is similar to a partnership but has the legal protections of personal assets that a corporation offers without some of the formalities required for bigger corporations. Exact rules for LLC vary by state. Our attorneys can help you by reading over what you have and clarifying if this is the right fit for your situation.
An S-corp is often confused with a C-corp. However, there are some notable differences. An S-corp is similar to the C-corp, except that it has elected a special federal tax status, or an S status. This means that this business will be treated the way a partnership, LLC or sole proprietor would be for tax purposes.
A partnership is created when two or more people own and operate a business together and don’t form an LLC or a corporation. Partnerships are the default business form for businesses with multiple owners. They can be tricky, and it’s critical that the legality is set up correctly. You can trust our attorneys to make sure this is set up to benefit both people.
