Entity Structuring

It is important to structure your business entity in your best interest.

As a business owner, you must make many decisions that are critical to the success of your company. One of the most important decisions you are faced with is deciding how to structure your company. There are many choices, and all have their own legal and tax considerations. You need someone you can trust to help you analyze the benefits associated with each type of entity and determine which structure best fits your company’s short and long-term goals.

Making the Right Decision

Dopkins & Company will work with you, and other key players you want involved, to review and select an entity structure that will maximize tax savings and protect your assets. Whether you choose to incorporate (C corporations and S corporations), create a limited liability company (LLC), a partnership (general and limited partnerships) or a sole proprietorship, our professionals will help you find the best match for your company and your financial goals.

Each structure is designed to meet different needs, and we will work with you to find the one (or mix?) that is right for you and your company. We’ll help you analyze what’s most important to your unique business, taking into consideration the size of your business, the type of industry, and how you operate. Together we will discuss such pressing issues as:

  • Liability and asset protection
  • Tax savings and reporting requirements
  • Ownership concerns
