Should You Incorporate Your Business?

Are you thinking about starting your own business or incorporating your sole propreitorship?

I will be presenting at the Freelancer's Union special two-part seminar "Should I Incorporate" on June 16th and June 23rd. Together with tax expert Howard Samuels, CPA, I will be speaking on the ins and outs of incorporating your freelance business from both the taxation and legal perspective.

This event will cover the following topics:
• Structural differences between S-Corps, C-Corps, LLCs, and Sole Proprietorships • How business entities differ for tax purposes • How business entities are taxed on a state/city level • How business entities differ from a legal and personal liability standpoint • How to ensure that a creditor will not "pierce" the corporation or LLC to hold you personally liable • Accounting/bookkeeping requirements for entities • How to hire an accountant for your business • What to ask when retaining a lawyer for your business

Part-one is coming up soon!

The formation of an LLC is easy, but the choice as to whether it's the right entity may not be so. For example, many single owner businesses people don't know that by organizing a business as an S-Corp as opposed to an LLC can save approximately $7,500 in taxes for every $100,000 in gross profits earned.
