Business Entity Formation

The Jackson Law Firm is prepared to assist you in your new business venture by counseling you regarding the formation of an appropriate business entity.  The decision as to which business entity to form is often linked to identifying the level of formality desired, as well as exploring questions relating to the minimization of risk and tax consequences.  Among the business entities to be considered are:

  • Corporations
  • Limited Liability Companies
  • Partnerships
  • Sole Proprietorships

Even within the above-identified structures, further choices exist, depending again upon a number of factors that may vary from business to business.  For example, where an evaluation of the potential risks and benefits of utilizing a certain business structure suggests that incorporation of the business is most advantageous, one needs to further determine whether the business should be incorporated as a C-corporation, S-Corporation, or a Professional Corporation / Professional Association.  The latter is available, for example, where similarly licensed professionals desire to incorporate.  Examples include architects, attorneys at law, certified public accountants, chiropractic physicians, dentists, doctors of medicine, life insurance agents, osteopathic physicians, physicians and surgeons, and veterinarians.

In some contexts, a partnership or sole proprietorship may suffice under the circumstances.  Conversely,Floridaalso affords business owners the opportunity to organize limited liability companies, which provide the limited liability enjoyed by corporations while providing tax benefits enjoyed by partnerships and sole proprietorships.
