Q: Should I form a legal entity for my business?  If so, what is the best type of legal entity to form?
A: If you wish to protect your personal assets from business liability, you should form a legal entity for your business. There are many types of legal entities from which to choose.  The main options for organization of small and medium-sized businesses are sole proprietorship, general partnership, limited partnership, limited liability company (“LLC”), S corporation and C corporation. To determine which is right for you, you should consider the size of your business, type of operation, assets, and location. Because each business is unique, you should consult with an accountant and an attorney before making a decision.
