The Four Common Types of Businesses

Creating a new business in New York is a major consideration that should be carefully examined before moving forward. Because there are personal liability and tax implications for each type of business organization, a business attorney in New York City should be consulted.

The four main types of businesses include:

  • Sole Proprietorships, which make you as an individual and your business linked to one another. While you are entitled to all of your company’s profits, you are also liable for all of its debts. Your personal income will also be taxed as a business’.
  • Partnerships, which are formed among two or more individuals sharing profit and liability for their company.
  • Limited Liability Companies (LLC), which shield its owners (“members”) from some of the business’ liabilities while still allowing them to benefit from its profits. LLCs are created through Articles of Organization.
  • Corporations, which generally shields owners from many or all of the company’s liabilities. This is typically at the cost of more taxes and in greater amounts.

You are not necessarily confined to these four types of businesses, and these definitions are by no means comprehensive explanations of your risk. There are many different types of business entities that account for different levels of liability. Only an experienced attorney can help you identify which options work best for your needs.
