Choosing the Right Corporate Structure for Your Small Business


One of the most important decisions faced by entrepreneurs when starting a new

business is determining the best type of legal structure for the enterprise. Should you set up

as a “C” corporation, a partnership, a limited liability partnership (“LLP”), a limited liability

corporation (“LLC”), a “Sub-Chapter S” corporation, a sole proprietorship? The list goes on

and on and can be mind boggling for even the most seasoned serial entrepreneur.
