The next mistake is choosing the wrong business entity. Most business owners and professionals start out as a sole proprietor, then go on to establish a corporation or limited liability company. But which corporation? A "C" corporation for employee benefits or an "S" corporation for minimizing employment tax?
Limited liability companies can be even more complicated. That's because you can choose whether to pay tax as a sole proprietor, a partnership, a C-corporation, or an S-corporation. Choosing the wrong entity can waste thousands in tax, year after year, for as long as you operate your business. If you're operating as a sole proprietor when you could take advantage of an S-corporation, for example, you'll pay thousands more into a Social Security system that you probably aren't counting on to finance your retirement. If you're operating as an S-corporation, you might be losing thousands in employee benefits you could deduct if you were a C-corporation. You might even do best with more than one entity, like an S-corporation to minimize employment taxes and a C-corporation to maximize employee benefits. Complicated? Unfortunately, yes. But that's where we come in. We'll evaluate your business to see which entity makes the most sense for you now. And we'll keep evaluating your business as we work together to make sure you have the best possible structure going forward.
