Business Entity Type Select the type of business entity you wish to form.

LLC stands for Limited Liability Company. It is a newer business entity type, and it has fast become the preference among many new small business owners. LLCs were designed to offer the personal asset protection of Corporations, and with fewer initial and on-going requirements. For example, LLCs generally do not have to keep detailed meeting minutes, or even hold formal meetings at all.

Corporations have been around for hundreds of years, so the paperwork to form and maintain them can sometimes seem archaic. But if you plan to "go-public" soon (for example, to make a public offering of your company's shares on the New York Stock Exchange), this is the only business entity type that can do it.

An S-Corporation is a special type of Corporation that avoids the "double taxation" that normal Corporations are subject to. Specifically, the IRS does not tax the business on its revenues. Instead, the owners pay taxes on the business's revenues on their personal tax returns.
