Business Management Structures

Most state laws offer many business management structures that suit the uniqueness of the business. Common business management structures are:
  • Sole Proprietors
  • Partnerships
  • Limited Partnerships
  • Corporations
  • Limited Liability Companies
Depending on the management structure of the business, certain managers or owners may be held liable for the credit problems, injury claims, and warranties of the business.

Starting a Business

Starting your own business is a great financial endeavor. When starting your own business, you should consider some of the following:
  1. What type of business do you want to engage in
  2. Whether to begin your own business or contract with a franchise company
  3. Where the business should be located
  4. Whether to buy or lease business space
  5. Your personal financial circumstances

Buying or Selling a Business

While purchasing an existing business may be beneficial since the business, lease, employees and customer base are already established, a buyer should consider the financial past and future of the existing business before making an offer.

After you have made the decision to sell or buy an existing business, you must be ready to commit some time to organizing all your financial documents and records. An agent or lawyer may be needed to complete the transaction. We invite you to contact our office to receive a free initial consultation and honest assessment of your situation.
