Starting a business requires making strategic decisions from the beginning. These early choices can shape the course of the enterprise for years to come. Chief among them is your choice of business entity. Will you structure the business as a corporation, limited liability company (LLC), partnership or sole proprietorship? Will it be an S or C corporation? A general partnership or limited partnership?
The answer depends on your goals for the business. As an entrepreneur, you have the exciting opportunity to lay the groundwork for future success. We’re here to help you harness that potential.
