Business Planning in Oakland County

Seek Assistance You Can Trust

We have experience dealing with small startup businesses, and we can help you get your business off the ground and counsel you through any issues that arise.

Starting a Business in Michigan

One of the first choices you will need to make when opening a business is choosing the proper formation of entity. The structure of your business will determine your personal liability. A limited liability company, for example, can safeguard your assets from creditor debts and lawsuit settlements. The type of entity you choose will also dictate how you file your taxes. Each structure offers benefits and disadvantages, and we can help you select an LLC, a C-corporation, an S-corporation or a partnership to give you the best tax advantages and most business results.

After you have chosen your entity, you will then need to structure your business. Structuring your business includes determining the operating procedures and guidelines. The operating procedures and guidelines can be beneficial to help keep the business's employees on track to accomplish the business's mission. Having the proper contracts in place is important, and we can help you draft buy-sell agreements to protect the business and agreements between vendors to make sure everything runs smoothly.
