One important aspect to business formation is choosing a business entity. There are a number of different types of business that a person can start, meaning that a business can fall into a number of classifications. One of the classifications of a business is a limited liability company, or more commonly referred to as an LLC. An LLC is a type of company that combines corporation principles and partnership or sole proprietor principles in its formation. With an LLC, there can be an indiscernible amount of members and can be formed as a nonprofit entity. The way in which an LLC is like a corporation is in its liability. Liability is limited for the members of the LLC meaning that that a member is only financially responsible for the amount of their contribution to the LLC.

Tax implications will vary depending on what type of business it is. The Internal Revenue Service is very clear and specific about the taxes that will attach to different types of businesses. In order to differentiate among what is what with respect to a new business and the taxes that will apply, there needs to be some understanding and comprehension of the tax code. Outside of knowing the tax implications for a new business, having a business name as well as registering a business and establishing articles of incorporation, where applicable, is necessary.

Along with being exciting, those starting a new business must be very detailed in their approach. Therefore, those considering a new business should explore all their legal options.
