ASKING THE RIGHT BUSINESS ORGANIZATION QUESTIONS

According to United States Small Business Administration, here are a few important questions we can help you answer:

  • What is your company’s organizational structure?
  • Who owns your company and how?
  • Have you created profiles of your management team?
  • What are the qualifications of your board of directors?
  • Who is on your board?
  • Have you clearly defined who does what in your organization?
  • What is your salary structure?
  • Are you offering benefits packages?
  • What service or product line will you provide?

CHOOSING A STRUCTURE

One of the first things we’ll need to help you decide is what business structure you will need. This decision has several legal and tax-related implications so choosing the right structure is an important first step. The team at Foshee & Yaffe, Attorneys at Law is prepared to help you choose the structure that best suits your current needs and your future goals.

The structures available include:

SOLE PROPRIETORSHIP

Are you the only employee? Sole proprietorships are the most basic business structure. In a sole proprietorship structure, you would be responsible for all liabilities and assets as the sole owner. 

LIMITED LIABILITY COMPANY

Partnerships provide certain operational flexibilities. Corporations maximize tax efficiencies. Limited Liability Companies (LLCs) are set up to offer both of these benefits. 

COOPERATIVE

Cooperative structures are established to provide services for the benefit of all members and owners. 

CORPORATION

This structure is best for well-established, complex organizations with multiple employees.

PARTNERSHIP

When more than one party want to combine for the benefit of a mutual interest a partnership may be formed, defining the responsibilities and exchange for each partner.

S CORPORATION

Finally, an S Corporation structure is what’s called a “pass through” structure giving the tax benefits of a simple partnership to a corporation with 100 shareholders or less.
