Choosing the Right Business Entity
Your business structure has a significant impact on how much you will pay in taxes. That means it is one of the most important decisions you have to make. We can help you choose the correct entity from the start. By evaluating different structures for tax planning advantages and ease of operation, we can find one that fits all your needs.
Here are the different business entities you can choose from:
Sole Proprietorship: If you are looking for a simple business entity to establish, this is perfect for your needs. It’s an excellent choice for a single person who owns and operates his company. That way, you can add your business income and expenditure to your personal income tax returns for easy and quick filing. This type of entity is also unincorporated, and you will be responsible for all the liabilities since it’s not a separate legal entity from the owner.
Partnerships: With this type of entity, you and two or more other owners need to sign a written agreement to share in the responsibilities of managing and operating a business together. You will also share the gains and losses. Additionally, when tax filing returns, each partner must report their share of the profits or losses.
C- Corporation: This entity differs from a sole proprietorship in that the business becomes a separate legal entity from the owner. It also limits the liability of its owners and other investors. You are not liable for its losses, and each shareholder or owner will pay taxes based on profits and corporate dividends.
S- Corporation: This entity often appeals to new startups because it offers tax benefits and protects owners from liabilities. It passes credits, deductions, income, and losses to its investors. Even so, you need to strictly adhere to all the accounting and legal rules unique to this entity.
Limited Liability Company: This is a unique hybrid entity. It combines either a sole proprietorship or a partnership with a corporation’s characteristics. As an owner, you will not be personally liable if your business experience losses.
