Choosing the best form of business entity for your new venture is critical to maximizing your new business’s potential over the long term. Which entity is best for you will vary depending on your individual circumstances and needs. Amongst common entity forms, your business might be best suited to be formed as a Corporation, Limited Liability Company (LLC), or Partnership (Limited Partnership, Limited Liability Partnership). Each provides varying benefits and can have very different tax implications for your business. Corporations are subject to double taxation, meaning that the corporation pays tax at the corporate level and the shareholders pay tax on any dividends paid by the corporation. Partnerships are pass-through entities, meaning that the partnership is not taxed, and income is taxed only on the partner level. LLC’s are flexible entities that can be taxed as a corporation or as a partnership. In order to choose the best entity for you, please contact our office to schedule an initial consultation.
