A Brief Overview of Business Entity Formation Often, when just starting out, a small business will be more or less a part time venture. In the beginning at least, a small business venture will not generate much profit. After a while it becomes apparent that the business is stable and profitable, able to generate significant profits. Soon, the question for a small business owner is how they can protect the investment they have made in their business. When you are seeking to protect your small business assets, you need to look into business entity formation. If you are a sole business proprietor, you may be subject to a nearly unlimited business liability. For many people, the term ‘unlimited’ may require some explanation. Basically, unlimited liability means if your business fails, you stand to lose quite a bit more than your business assets. This can include personal property, like your home or other valuable property in some states. This is why it is so important for a growing business to form a business entity. After deciding that you are going to form a business entity, it is important to figure out which type will best serve your needs. A number of different business entities are available, each of which will protect a proprietors assets in a number of different business situations. Business entities include corporations, limited partnerships (LPs), limited liability partnerships (LLPs) and limited liability companies (LLCs). The formation of any one of these legitimate business entities can offer a proprietor a variety of important benefits.
