For most people, the first step in starting a business is probably having the right “idea.” You have thought of a product or service that you think will be profitable – but, we all know that there is much more than that when it comes to starting and operating a successful business. In California, just like most other states, how you form your business will be a crucial part of the process.
Some of the biggest reasons you need to think carefully about how your business will be formed are the needs to main control and to limit personal liability. Sole proprietorships, limited liability companies, partnerships and corporations all have their pros and cons when it comes to these factors, among many others. When it comes to forming a business, things can get complicated in a hurry.
