Business Formation Attorney - Valerie L. Kramer

Form LLC, Corporation or Partnership - Flat Rate for Most Entities*

Most new business owners struggle with what type of entity to create. Valerie will be able to assist you decide on the best entity for your situation. If you have an accountant or CPA, she recommends you get them to weigh in as well.

When forming a new business entity in California one of the firs decisions is which entity should be formed. The two typical choices are between a California LLC vs. S Corp. This is because Limited Liability Companies (LLCs) and Subchapter S Corporations (S Corps) have consistently ranked the most favored & flexible entities to be considered.

LLCs and S Corps are both “pass-through” entities. Both provide liability protection, but have several important differences. Owners need to consider profit-sharing, administrative requirements, LLC fees, state franchise taxes, employment tax implications, eligibility of owners, and operational ease when making their choice. That's where an experienced business attorney can be a huge help in guiding you.

* Flat rate exceptions. State of California licensed professionals (lawyers, for example) are often required to form a Professional Corporation (APC). Our inexpensive 'flat rate' simply cannot cover all the hours necessary to properly create an more-complex APC.

FUN FACT - Most new business owners don't understand...

What Exactly is an S Corp?

What is generically called an S Corp may not be a Corporation at all, but could be an LLC. An 'S Corp' is not technically a business structure so much as it is a tax status. In 1958, Congress created the S corporation --- also called the small business corporation --- so that small businesses could get similar tax advantages as giant corporations, but without the double taxation. S CORP is a tax status, sometimes called a tax designation.

To receive the benefits and tax savings of an S Corp tax status, we must first register with the state as an LLC or C Corp. Then, once registered, Valerie will send The IRS the Form 2553 to indicate you want your business to be taxed as an S Corp designation. Valerie can answer all your questions during your initial no-cost phone consultation.
