Choosing a structure for your company is typically a confusing and difficult process. Ask three lawyers and get five different answers! Corporation or LLC? Delaware, California or Nevada? C-corp. or S-corp.? Confused? Many factors come into play when choosing an organizational structure. While most choices are not irrevocable, it is in entrepreneur’s best interest to make a well-informed decision early.
•What type of entity should you use, and why?
•Where to form that entity?
•What are the tax ramifications of your decision?
•What else do I need to consider?
