Business Organizations

Those initials after your business name aren’t just for decoration. They have real financial and operational implications.

Believe me when I say that being your own boss isn’t always everything it’s cracked up to be.

Business Organizations
The good news is that a little extra effort on the front end resolves many adverse issues. There are several different possible business organizations. They all have significant pros and cons. So, one of them is right for you, your employees (if any), and your family (if any). Generally, laying a solid foundation is the key to success in this area. If you do everything right the first time and anticipate problems before they occur, your business will run more smoothly. If that sounds like a lot, don’t worry. That’s what I’m here for.

As mentioned, corporations often have substantial tax advantages. An Inc. or LLC after your business name also gives your business added legitimacy and helps it raise or borrow capital. Frankly, sometimes the liability protection is a big deal, and sometimes it’s not. And from an operation standpoint, corporations are always unwieldy.

Trusts are never one-size-fits-all, and the process of setting one up can get complicated. A skilled attorney will give you advice about things like what or who to put in the trust, and what or who to keep out.
