Getting off to a proper start is crucial for any new business. Choosing an appropriate business structure is an important part of making sure that you achieve that proper start. The type of entity you form will impact how you are taxed, your ability to raise capital, the ease with which you may bring on partners, and more. This is why you must consider both current and future issues when starting a company. Retaining an experienced attorney, in turn, can assist you with understanding your options and making the right choices.

Long Island lawyer setting up LLC’s, partnerships, or corporations for New York based businesses
There are several ways in which a New York based business may structure a new venture. Individuals may choose to form a partnership. They may also choose to form an LLC or they may form a corporation. These are in addition to other choices which are available. There are positives and negatives to any business structure. A partnership, for example, will provide the owners with the greatest amount of flexibility. The partners, however, will likely have higher tax burdens and greater potential liability. A Limited Liability Company (otherwise known as an “LLC”), if formed properly, can alleviate some of these tax and liability concerns but may leave little flexibility for future expansion. A corporation will provide the highest level of liability protection, but can come with the highest tax burdens. These types of issues, obviously, can greatly impact an owner’s choice for a business structure.
The first step in forming a business is to consider the short, medium, and long-term goals of the company. This will allow for the choice of a business structure which will allow for any current goals to be met while leaving room for future expansion. Once the form of the business has been chosen, the founding members will require the preparation of properly drafted company bylaws and any necessary charters. Once these documents are drafted then the company may be officially registered with the Secretary of State’s Office. The owners will then obtain an EIN number, from the IRS, for the new company along with any required business licenses. As one moves forward, it is vital to ensure that all federal, state, and local rules are followed. This is an ongoing process which, to many, can seem overwhelming. Retaining an experienced attorney can assist you with achieving future success.
