SOLE PROPRIETOR: The company’s name is the owner’s name unless a DBA (”Doing Business As”) is filed. A DBA allows the individual to transact business under a different name (e.g., John Smith owns a construction company and files “d/b/a Smith Construction”).
Sole proprietor status does not provide the liability protection and tax advantages of incorporating (unlimited liability). Operating as a sole proprietor does not require the same on-going compliance requirements of incorporating or forming an LLC.
GENERAL PARTNERSHIP: The company’s name is the owners’ names, unless a DBA is filed. The arrangement by which partners are conducting a business jointly have unlimited liability, which means their personal assets are liable to the partnership’s obligations.
General partnership status does not provide limited liability protection for the personal assets of the owner(s). General partnership does not require the same, on-going compliance requirements of incorporating or forming an LLC.
CORPORATION or LLC: To operate as a Corporation or LLC, Articles of Incorporation (or, Article of Organization for LLC’s) need to be filed with the appropriate state agency.
Corporation or LLC status protects personal assets. It is easier to raise capital with these types of designations. There is opportunity to gain credibility with potential customers/clients, vendors, partners, and employees. Corporations or LLCs may enjoy certain tax deductions that are not available to sole proprietors.
- Members are self-employed individuals
- Members owe Social Security & Medicare taxes, paid by self-employment tax
- Incorporating automatically makes you a C Corp
- Separate legal entity set up under state law protects owner assets from creditor claims
- Separate taxpayer identity with income and expenses taxed to the corporation and not owners
- Can lead to double taxation
- Profits, losses, and other taxes pass through the corporation and are reported on your personal return
- No double taxation
- Sharholders are employees of their corporation, so Social Security and Medicare taxes apply to wages they receive, but not to distributions
