Organizing Your Business: The Structure

The first step in the formation of your business is to choose the type of ownership structure. The choices are:

  • LLC or Limited Liability Company: includes elements of partnership and corporate structure
  • Partnership: two or more partners co-own the business and share profits
  • Sole proprietorship: a single individual in business for himself (most small businesses choose this form)
  • Corporation: a business that is legally its own entity
  • Non-Profit: organization established for some other purpose than financial profit
  • Co-operative: organization jointly owned by those that use its services
