Choosing the right entity is an important step in starting a new business. Your decision will impact control over key decisions, access to outside capital, liability for debts, taxes and a host of other factors.

The entity you choose should support your business’ financial and strategic goals.  This program will examine the pros and cons of each entity type, and help you understand the key factors to consider in choosing the right entity for your new business.  These factors include:

  • Start-up costs and ease of management
  • Personal liability for debts and creditor obligations
  • Control over key decisions
  • Access to outside funding, bank loans and investment capital
  • Tax consequences

Once you know the strengths and weaknesses of each entity type, you’ll be better prepared to decide which type of entity will give your business the best advantages.

This is a great overview with some clear guidance from one of our most experienced team members with a rich legal background you’ll find informative and engaging. And, it’s at no charge!
