Business Formation: What are the Benefits?

  • Establishing a sole proprietorship allows your business to have more credibility because your business is a legal entity and not a fly-by-night operation.
  • Establishing an LLC offers you limited liability protection: here, business assets are separate from personal assets so if your company goes bankrupt or is sued, only business assets and finances are affected. Your personal finances are independent and not affected.
  • If you choose to form a corporation you can sell company shares for the purpose of generating more money which you can use to expand the business.
