What Legal Structure Should I Choose For My Business?

When deciding on the legal structure for your business, there are some factors you must consider to ensure the best fit for your needs. At The Law Office of Nikki Farris, our business attorney is here to guide you through the process and help you make informed decisions for your business. We offer affordable and practical solutions. With more than 20 years of experience, we are dedicated to providing exceptional legal support for business owners in Butte County.

Choosing the right legal structure is vital as it impacts your liability protection, tax obligations, management structure, and more. Here are some common options to consider:

  • Sole Proprietorship: A simple and most common structure. It provides ease of operation and allows you to have complete control. However, it offers no separation between personal and business liabilities.
  • Partnership: Want to start a business with partners? There are two main types: general partnership and limited partnership. Each has its own implications regarding liability and decision-making authority.
  • Limited Liability Company (LLC): An LLC combines the liability protection of a corporation with the flexibility and tax benefits of a partnership. It offers personal asset protection, fewer formalities, and pass-through taxation.
  • Corporation: A corporation is a separate legal entity from its owners. It provides limited liability protection to shareholders, allows for raising capital through the sale of stock, and offers potential tax advantages. There are different types of corporations, such as C corporations and S corporations, each with distinct tax implications and requirements.

Deciding which business structure works best for you requires considering your business goals, your operations, and your long-term plans.
