Choosing the Right Business Entity
Your choice of business entity will impact much more than the future of the business itself. While laying a foundation for success and protecting you from liability are certainly the most prominent components of business formation, there are other issues to consider.
Does your choice of business entity provide optimum tax protection or does it open the door to serious tax-related repercussions? Is the business asset protected from outside attack such as you losing your business due to a lawsuit over a car accident? Does your business protect you personally from liability that arises inside the business? Is your business plan integrated into your estate plan? These are all questions to consider.
Business Entity Options
There are a wide range of options available, including:
- Family Limited Partnerships
- Limited liability companies (LLC), including Series LLCs
