Starting a New Business in the Chicago Area? Talk with Us First!
When beginning a business, you must decide what form of business entity to establish. Your form of business determines which income tax return form you have to file. The most common forms of business are the sole proprietorship, partnership, corporation, and S corporation. A Limited Liability Company (LLC) is a business structure also allowed by state statute.
Here's a brief overview of each:
A sole proprietorship is the most basic type of business to establish. You alone own the company and are responsible for its assets and liabilities.
There are several different types of partnerships, which depend on the nature of the arrangement and partner responsibility for the business.
A corporation is more complex and generally suggested for larger, established companies with multiple employees.
An S corporation is similar to a C corporation but you are taxed only on the personal level.
LIMITED LIABILITY COMPANY (LLC)
An LLC is designed to provide the limited liability features of a corporation and the tax efficiencies and operational flexibility of a partnership.
It's important to keep in mind that each type of business entity carries different legal and tax implications. That's why, it's important to meet with us before you form your new business.
