LLCs and Corporations
Limited Liability Company (LLC) – LLCs have become very popular, and the LLC is a good choice of business entity for a small business with relatively few partners. Besides offering limited liability protection (meaning that the entity is separate from its members and is primarily liable for business liabilities), the LLC has the advantage of choosing how to be taxed.
It can choose to be taxed as a partnership, as a corporation taxed under subchapter S of the Internal Revenue Code (“S corporation”), as a corporationg taxed under subchapter C of the Internal Revenue Code (“C corporation”), or if the LLC only has one member, it can choose to be taxed as a disregarded entity. This meaning that the IRS does not recognize its entity status for purposes of taxation (a single member LLC also has the option to choose to be taxed as an S or C corporation).
Corporation – The corporation also offers limited liability protection and is the better choice if you anticipate that your business will require outside investment, or will grow substantially and possibly go public.
We provide assistance with a shareholders’ agreement, legal consultation, name availability, formation, records required by law, bylaws, tailored meeting minutes forms, employer identification number, and explain how to operate your corporation.
S corporations and LLCs are the most common entities for new small businesses, and we help you to choose the one that will work best for your type of business and for your long-term business goals.
