Choosing the right business entity could not only save you a ton of money, but it might be the most important business decision you make! You may be surprised to learn that what is “common” is NOT the best type for everyone.

LLC, S-Corporation, Sole Proprietor, Partnership…oh my! Your attorney says one thing, your accountant says something else, and your colleagues have something completely different going on. With so MANY business entities to choose from, which is best? Do you even need one?

**This is a MUST VIEW for anyone who is in business or thinking of starting a business. The information presented is in an understandable and easy to relate to format. **

You will learn the advantages and disadvantages between (cost, taxes, paperwork, reporting requirements, etc):

  • LLCs, PLLCs, LLPs
  • Corporations, S-Corporations
  • Partnerships, Limited Partners, General Partners
  • DBAs, Trade Names

You will also learn:

  • Should you incorporate out of state?
  • What is an EIN and do you need one?
  • Who can legally prepare documents for you…and who cannot.
  • Tips and advice from a tax and business perspective.
  • …and more….

Also, some real life success and horror stories will be shared (no names, of course).
