Choosing a Business Entity?

Deciding to start a business is an exciting decision. But determining how you should formally organize and structure it can be intimidating. At best, the determination is often the result of a kind of calculus that looks at formation expense, personal liability protection, potential tax savings, and the complexity of ongoing compliance formalities. At worst, the aspiring entrepreneur merely slides into business and ends up with a business structure they neither intend nor understand.
Nonetheless, one of the very first and most important decisions you must make is what type of business entity your new business will be. Its absolutely critical to your future success and survival.
