Don’t start your business off on the wrong foot by trying to save start up costs with an online business incorporation kit:
Business entity formation is a confusing process. What entity is best? LLC or Corporation? Which tax status? Sub-S? LLC with an 8832? How do you document percent ownership among partners? Who has decision-making power, voting rights? Who gets what in dissolution? What about taxes? It is critical to have a business lawyer advise you specifically on each topic, after taking into account your exact legal and tax position.
Cheap “self-help” incorporation and LLC formation sites often create real disasters for business owners. If you are considering using a cheap incorporation service or downloading some operating agreement off the internet and ‘doing it yourself’, DON’T. Many litigation cases and business law disputes stem directly from poorly written and badly thought-out shareholder agreements. Your business is too important to risk losing simply because you wanted to make your first step a cost saving step.
