General Business Types

Each business structure has its own set of legal and tax implications. Determining which structure is most efficient depends on your business needs, such as:

  • Cooperative. Usually involving an elected board or officers, owners (or user-owners) operate the business or organization for the benefit of each involved party. They divide profits and earnings as such. Cooperatives are typical within the healthcare, agriculture, art, retail and restaurant trades.
  • Corporation. A corporation is typically a larger independent business with employees, and is owned by shareholders. Advantages of incorporating a business include personal asset protection, enhanced credibility, brand protection, some tax benefits and deductible business expenses. Each shareholder is responsible for his or her own actions and incurred debts. Administrative fees are generally costly and the tax and legal requirements can be extensive. A corporation sometimes involves stock offering.
  • Limited Liability Company (LLC). LLCs also protect you personally from business liabilities. An LLC combines the benefits and flexibilities of some other business structures to allow owners to serve as “members” in a profit and loss environment. Each member is responsible for his or her own federal tax returns.
  • Partnership. Partnerships operate with two or more owners or “partners.” Each partner contributes to every part of the business and subsequently shares in profits and losses.
  • Sole Proprietorship. An unincorporated business that is owned and run by only one person, sole proprietorships are the most basic business structure option available. Sole ownership entitles the owner to all assets and liabilities.

Establishment Process

While structuring a business depends on which type you select, there are some aspects synonymous with most business types. Kramer Law business lawyers guide clients on how to:

  • File articles of incorporation
  • Establish bylaws or membership applications
  • Obtain licenses and permits
  • Create operating agreements
