- Limited liability company (LLC)
- Limited liability partnership (LLP)
- Limited partnership (LP)
- General Partnership
- Sole proprietorship
As a joint law and CPA firm, we analyze your legal and tax needs when recommending the best entity structure. Some of the tax and legal factors we consider when counseling our clients in forming an entity are as follows:
- When you should incorporate (and when you should not)
- How to lower your taxes by forming a corporation or a LLC or a partnership
- Ensuring your limited liability is not jeopardized
- S-Corporation vs C-Corporation – when to choose one over the other
Putting Sound Compliance Structures in Place
Once your business entity is established, it may be required to adopt bylaws and conduct regular meetings. If there are multiple owners, it is also generally advisable for the owners to enter into a shareholder agreement, operating agreement or partnership agreement. Our experienced business lawyers will guide you through all aspects of the business entity governance process, providing cost-effective representation when you need it most.
