Managing Business Formation in NY & NJ

The structure of your business is crucial in order to achieve both your short and long-term goals. Implementing the wrong structure for your business can lead to significant financial, legal and tax consequences. At the Law Office of Alexander Schachtel, our business formation attorneys have years of experience helping clients understand their options.

Our business formation attorneys will carefully evaluate your unique needs and circumstances, and then guide you in selecting the business structure that best suits your situation.

There are advantages and disadvantages, associated with each type of business formation structure. A few key factors are:

Types of Business Formation

There are several ways to structure your business. A few common business structures include:
Sole Proprietorship
This is the easiest way to start a business. There is no need to file any documents with the state. You are the sole owner that is responsible for all profits and losses and would file them along with your personal income tax return. In this case, your personal assets are not protected from your business losses.
Limited Liability Partnership (LLP)
Like a general partnership, but it limits profit and liability to the amount of investment a partner has made into the business.
Joint Venture
This formation is similar to a general partnership but limited in duration and to one project.
C-Corporation
This type of business formation separates your personal assets from business assets. Therefore, personal assets cannot be seized to pay corporate debts. It is required for documents to be filed with the state and periodically updated.
S-Corporation
Like a C-Corporation, but with a limited number of shareholders and different tax rules apply.
Limited Liability Company (LLC)
Your personal assets are protected from business debts, but the business is taxed as a partnership. Articles of Organization need to be filed with the state. This formation is viewed as a hybrid, with the best tax advantages and operational benefits of a partnership and corporation.
