It is much easier to win a race if you begin with a head start. This concept applies to beginning a business owner. By choosing the right business structure from the outset you help to insure against potential liability, disputes between owners, and possible tax issues. Many entrepreneurs and start-ups can find themselves confused as to how they should proceed when it is time to set up shop. Our Santa Ana business formation attorneys assist with helping new companies choose a corporate structure and with ensuring that the entity is set up properly. Call our office today to speak with a lawyer. We also service Anaheim, Irvine, and all of Orange County.
Orange County business lawyers helping companies choose the right structure in Santa Ana, Anaheim, Irvine, and elsewhere
There are many forms a new business can take in California. Those beginning a new enterprise may wish to operate as a sole proprietorship, a partnership, an LLC, an S Corporation, or a Corporation. Each comes with its own advantages and disadvantages. These advantages can range from flexibility in terms of bringing in new owners, raising capital, and the amount of red tape one must deal with. Disadvantages can range from obligations one has to shareholders to a more complicated tax structure. There are two potential issues which arise when one is starting a new business entity. First, choosing the wrong form can hinder one’s ability to do business in the way they originally envisioned. Second, failing to set the entity up properly can lead to one not having liability protection as well as additional complications. It is strongly suggested that those beginning a new enterprise contact an attorney for assistance.
