You have many options regarding entity selection when you’re just getting started. Depending on your situation, different selections have benefits and limitations that could impact you or your business. We will take the time to explain your options, including the benefits and limitations of each one. Some of your choices of entities include:

  • Incorporation (including C-corporations and S-corporations)
  • Limited Liability Company (LLC)
  • Partnerships (including limited partnerships, such as an LLP, PLLP and general partnerships)
  • Professional Businesses (including a PC, PLLC and PA)
  • Charitable Organizations
  • Sole Proprietorships

We also discuss business strategies with you, helping you consider all angles so you can make fully informed choices. For example, if you have several real estate holdings, you may want to consider a separate company for each piece of property for purposes of asset protection. This way, you avoid having one unsuccessful piece of property drag down other successful properties.

We can also advise you on how each choice affects your tax liability.
