Description

One of the first major decisions a startup or emerging business will need to make is regarding choice of entity. Selecting the right corporate framework--corporation, LLC or partnership--is critical to the success of any businesses. How can you determine the best fit for your emerging company?

This course provides general guidance for non-lawyers dealing with the issues which arise in deciding what type of entity form should be used for a budding business. The instructor will introduce a framework to help you analyze the different attributes of business entities, including four key considerations:

  • The lifecycle of the entity: Is this a single purpose entity, or will it grow over time?
  • Realities of death and taxes: How to close a business and manage the associated tax implications
  • Administration: What level of administration is required for your business?
  • Liability: Does your new business require you to carry personal liability insurance?
Who is the target audience?
  • Anyone interested in Business Man
  • Anyone interested in Business Law or Related fields.
