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.
