Why Do I Need a Formal Business Entity in Bentonville, AR?
Bentonville is home to many small businesses in entrepreneurs. If you are just starting out and establishing your operations, you may be wondering if creating a formal business entity is strictly necessary, especially if your organization is small – or if you are the only employee.
Forming a business entity is almost always in your best interest. When you run a business without an entity, you personally assume liability for your company’s actions and debts. In other words, your personal finances will be endangered if your business is struggling or fails outright, and you can be sued for the actions of your business. Businesses without any formal structure will also have a hard time securing outside funding, which tends to be essential to expansion.
The entity you choose for your business will determine how your organization is taxed, the level of personal liability you take on, and how your company will be structured. Because your decision will affect your business’s finances as well as how it will operate on a daily basis, you should get legal advice before moving forward. Each entity type has advantages and disadvantages, but we can review your goals and preferences and advise which choice best fits your needs.
