New Business Formation

Entrepreneurship is, without a doubt, the American dream. Be your own boss, operate under your own rules and ethics, and succeed through your own hard work and business savvy.

This is why Logan & Associates Ltd. offers our experience and expertise to new entrepreneurs who want a helping hand turning their ideas into reality.

Deciding on a Business Structure

There are numerous types of entities that you can establish your business as, each with their own unique traits and benefits. Which one you choose will be entirely dependent on what kind of business you are starting, what your goals are, and your individual needs as an owner.

  • Sole Proprietorship – As a sole proprietor, you are your business. There is no legal distinction between you and the services your business provides. As such, you are responsible for 100% of the taxes due on your profits, and are liable for all payments owed by the company.
  • LLC – An LLC has the benefit of offering a great deal more protection to the owners of the company. LLCs are known as ‘pass-through’ entities, called so because all profits pass through to the owner, who pays the business’ taxes on their own personal return.
  • Corporation – Corporation distinguish the business from the owners, providing further liability protections for the owners, as well as separating the tax burden.

Our team at Logan & Associates Ltd. will get to know you and your business and help you decide on which structure is right for you.
