The only book devoted to the most important business decision you'll make. Your company has grown -- now it's time to upgrade your legal structure to something that will protect you and your assets, as well as provide other benefits. In other words, your business is ready to become either a corporation or a limited liability company. The question is, "Which one?" The answer isn't always clear -- but because your choice will affect the legal and tax status of your business, it's the most important question you'll answer. LLC or Corporation? will help you make the right choice with plain-English explanations of the basics of business entities, how each business entity protects you from personal liability, profits, losses and tax treatment, converting from one type of business entity to another and what to do if you conduct business out of state. Making the right choice will affect your bottom line in many ways -- from what you pay for taxes, to your ability to seek money from investors. The book also provides conversion and formation scenarios that provide a real-world look at all the options available to you. The 2nd edition is completely updated with the latest laws regarding business structures and taxes.
