When you are starting a business or company there are many considerations you need to keep in mind. Regardless if your idea turns out to be successful or not, you will need to decide on a location to use it, a team to spread it, and an attorney to give it a legal framework… or not. Through our site, it is possible to get the corporate applications you need to start your company without the need of hiring any lawyer. What are exactly the forms you need to begin? Find out next in this article by the Corporation Center.
Different Businesses, Different Companies
To begin with, let us say that the requirements to form your own company vary from state to state. So the first decision you need to make when starting your own business is the legal address you will want to give to the company. Once you have chosen, it is time for you to decide between a limited liability company (LLC), a professional association, a corporation (it can be nonprofit), or any of the different types of partnerships. Find out about our corporate applications next:
Limited Liability Company (LLC)
A limited liability company (LLC) is a business structure that protects its owners from personal responsibility for their debts or liabilities.
A professional association, or professional organization, is an association made up of members who are part of the same industry or career fields such as lawyers, doctors, architects, engineers, and accountants.
A corporation is an organization that aims to earn profit through its operations and is concerned with its own interests.
A nonprofit corporation, on the other hand, is an organization formed to serve the public good, such as for charitable, religious, educational, or other public service reasons.
A general partnership is a type of business arrangement by which two or more individuals agree to share in all assets, profits, and financial and legal liabilities of a jointly-owned business.
A limited partnership (LP) is a type of partnership with at least one general partner and at least one limited partner.
Limited Liability Partnership (LLP)
A limited liability company (LLP) is a type of partnership that extends limited personal liability to all partners, including general partners.
Limited Liability Limited Partnership (LLLP)
A limited liability limited partnership (LLLP) is a form of a limited partnership. However, in an LLLP, both general partners and limited partners are shielded from personal liability in the case of debt or legal action against the business.
