Questions? You’re Covered

Business formation refers to the process of legally creating a new business entity. This involves registering the business with the appropriate government authorities, such as the state or local government, and choosing a legal structure, such as sole proprietorship, partnership, corporation, or limited liability company (LLC). 

Business formation is important for several reasons: 

  • It establishes the legal structure of the business, which affects liability, taxes, and other aspects. 
  • It provides legal protection for the business owners. 
  • It allows the business to operate legally and access certain benefits and resources, such as loans, permits, and licenses. 

The main types of business entities include: 

  • Sole Proprietorship 
  • Partnership (General Partnership, Limited Partnership) 
  • Corporation (C Corporation, S Corporation) 
  • Limited Liability Company (LLC) 
  • Cooperative 

The right business structure depends on factors such as the nature of the business, the number of owners, liability concerns, tax implications, and management preferences. Consulting with a lawyer or tax advisor can help you make an informed decision. 

The specific steps vary depending on the type of business and location, but generally involve: 

  • Choosing a business name and checking its availability. 
  • Registering the business with the appropriate government authorities. 
  • Obtaining any necessary licenses and permits. 
  • Creating governing documents, such as articles of incorporation or operating agreements. 
  • Complying with tax and regulatory requirements. 
  • Opening a business bank account. 

The timeline for business formation can vary widely depending on factors such as the type of business, location, and government processing times. It can take anywhere from a few days to several weeks or even months. 

After forming a business, there are ongoing requirements to maintain its legal status, such as: 

  • Filing annual reports and paying taxes. 
  • Renewing licenses and permits. 
  • Complying with any changes in regulations or laws. 
  • Keeping accurate financial records. 

Yes, it is possible to change your business structure after formation, but the process and implications vary depending on the new structure and other factors. It’s important to consult with legal and tax professionals before making such a change. 

The costs of business formation depend on factors such as the type of business, location, and legal requirements. Common costs include registration fees, legal fees, and ongoing compliance costs. 

You can get help with business formation from various sources, including: 

  • Legal professionals, such as lawyers and business consultants. 
  • Government agencies responsible for business registration and regulation. 
  • Online resources and guides provided by government agencies and business organizations.
