Choose the Right Legal Entity for Your Business

Each business is unique. When it comes to determining which legal entity is the best fit, you must consider a variety of unique factors, from risk appetite to capital needs to ownership structure.

  • Corporations: A corporation is an appealing entity because this formation option protects the shareholders from personal liability. This means that plaintiffs in a legal suit can generally only claim corporate assets if a corporation has the required “corporate formalities” in place.

  • Limited Liability Companies: LLCs are similar to corporations in that they shield owners from individual liability, but different in that they are less rigidly regulated. This entity has flexibility when it comes to taxation and strong asset protection.

  • Sole Proprietorships: This form of entity is the simplest and most commonly chosen business structure. There is no distinction between the business and the owner, so you are responsible for all losses, liabilities, and debts. That makes this formation structure incredibly risky. However, you are also entitled to all profits.
