One of the first decisions that you will have to make as a buisness owner is how the company should be structured. This decision will have long-term implications, so consult with an accountant and attorney to help you select the form of ownership that is right for you. In making a choice, you will want to take into account the following:

  • Your vision regarding the size and nature of your business.
  • Number of employees.
  • Type of business operation.
  • Legal restrictions.
  • The level of control you wish to have.
  • The level of “structure” you are willing to deal with.
  • The business’s vulnerability to lawsuits.
  • Tax implications of the different ownership structures.
  • Expected profit (or loss) of the business and capital needs.
  • Whether or not you need to re-invest earnings into the business.
  • Length of business operation.
