Starting a New Business
The LegalZoom newsletter has an interesting piece entitled Five Things to Remember When Starting a New Business. Number One, understandably was to choose the right legal structure:
- Corporation: Shareholders are not personally responsible for company debts; allows opportunity to raise capital from investors; formal record-keeping required; may reduce taxes, especially self-employment taxes.
- Limited Liability Corporation (LLC): Generally protects personal assets from company debts; no corporate tax as profits can be passed directly to owners; fewer corporate formalities required.
- Sole Proprietorship: No corporate formalities required; run by one individual who is personally responsible for the business’s debts.
