Business Formation and Termination

Each option for structuring a business carries different tax and legal implications. We understand these differences and can assist you in structuring your business. We guide you with confidence through each step in the process, including:

  • Selecting a business entity, such as a proprietorship, partnership, corporation or limited liability company (LLC)
  • Conducting the legal formation process, including preparation of the operating agreement, drafting partnership agreements and contracts
  • Properly setting up your business, appointing a registered agent, registering with Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and state taxing authorities
  • Navigating state qualifications and tax regulations

Business Dissolution

Properly ending a business is just as important as properly forming one. However, dissolving a business can be more problematic. We guide businesses through the termination process, including:

  • Calculating and explaining the tax impact of the termination upon both the enterprise and its owners
  • Ensuring the proper filings are completed at the state and federal level
