Structuring your business as an LLC will provide you with numerous advantages, namely shielding yourself from personal liability for business debts. For tax purposes, an LLC is known as a “pass-through entity”, which means that the profits and losses are passed through to its owners, who report them on their own personal tax returns. The LLC itself does not pay taxes on its profits; only the LLC members do. Atlantis Law will help you form an LLC, if doing so is the best structure for your new business. We will draft and file all the necessary documents to form your LLC. Typically, the necessary documents include the “articles of organization” and the written LLC operating agreement. Atlantis Law will ensure that your business gets launched quickly and smoothly.
An S-corporation is simply a normal corporation that has elected “S Corporation” tax status. In an S-corporation, all of the business profits and losses are “passed through” to its owners, which are then reported on their personal tax returns. This is beneficial because if your business incurs losses, those losses will be passed through to your personal tax return, which you can then use to offset any other income that you have from other sources. Additionally, you will be shielded from any personal liability that your business may incur. Atlantis Law will assist you with filling out all the necessary documents to elect S-corporation status. You must be eligible to elect S-corporation status, and Atlantis Law will make sure that you can incorporate your business as one if you choose to do so.
