Different Formation Types & Their Advantages

How a business is structured under the law will determine your tax liability, your protection from creditors or lawsuits, and the cost of doing business in your state. An unnecessarily expensive formation type will drain your business of profits at the most vulnerable stage of its development, while a sloppy or thoughtless formation could leave you personally responsible for enormous business debts.

Understanding your business’ goals and needs is part of our research process, which allows us to prescribe the type of structure that best benefits your business.

  • Basic formation types include the following characteristics:
  • Sole proprietorship: The simplest and least expensive entity—has only 1 owner who is legally the same entity as the business. Your personal assets may be used to pay off business debt.
  • Partnership: Requires a partnership contract. There is unlimited liability for both owners, and all profits and losses flows through the partnership. Profits and losses must be reported on each owner’s tax return.
  • Limited liability partnership (LLP): Type of partnership that has similar tax benefits as an LLC, but is barred from having the corporation as the “owner.”
  • Limited liability company (LLC): Need to file with Massachusetts. Offers limited liability protection to owners as the debts and accounts are “owned” by the LLC.
  • Corporation: Most costly entity type; for C-corporations, all profits and losses are retained at the corporate level and are taxed as income. Corporate dividends to owners is also taxed as income. For S-corporations, profits and losses flow straight to the owners.

Each of these formation types can also be fortified with agreements and structures to protect yourself from creditors and litigation. It’s worth noting that businesses can also reorganize in order to address new market opportunities for stable growth. Whether you are a new venture or a small business looking to reorganize, our team is more than happy to help you find the solution that will achieve your goals.
