Freis for a consultation today.

Entity Choice and Why it Matters

There are different options for business entities in California, each with its own potential benefits and drawbacks. Some options include:

  • Sole proprietorship
  • General partnership
  • Limited Partnership (LP)
  • Limited liability partnership (LLP)
  • Limited liability company (LLC)
  • Corporation

Some entities require no filings with the Secretary of State, while others require extensive paperwork and regular filings. When selecting a business entity, you should consider the following:

  • Ease and cost of formation
  • Liability protections for owners
  • Tax options and benefits
  • How you are funding the business
  • Whether there are multiple owners

Weighing the options will be different for each company owner, depending on the size and type of operation involved. You should carefully review each entity type to determine which one is the best for your specific enterprise. Once you select an entity, a lawyer can help ensure that you meet all the requirements for the formation and maintenance of the entity.
