There are many Ohio entity formations to explore when establishing your new business. Some include:

  • Corporation
  • Limited Liability Company (LLC)
  • General Partnership
  • Non-for-Profit Business Formation

Choosing the Right Business Entity for Your Business

One of the most critical decisions organizers of a business make is what form of entity to use.  Historically, the choices have been a sole proprietorship, general partnership, limited partnership, C or S corporation, or limited liability company (LLC). In some instances, a business may use joint ventures and other strategic alliances.

Besides limited liability, business organizers should consider such issues as the formality of business operations, the number of owners required, capital structure, profits, voting, management, transferability of interests, and continuity of life. As for tax considerations, the LLC’s status as a pass-through avoids the double-taxation difficulty with C corporations while permitting simplicity and privacy not always available with an S corporation. Seif & McNamee, LLC can guide you through your decision-making process.
