Choose the Right Legal Entity for Your Small Business

Choose the Right Legal Entity for Your Small Business

Thursday, October 22, 2020 6:00pm to 7:30pm

The importance of legal entity choice has never been more important when structuring your small business. We will pay special attention to child care providers, although this webinar is applicable to all business owners.

Join the Women's Business Center at JEDI, the North Coast SBDC, Start Small Think Big! and Small Business Majority for our Small Biz Pro Tip series, a free webinar for California small business owners. Facilitated by a lawyer, this workshop is designed to give you an overview of the various legal structures that are available to you if you decide to start your own business (e.g., LLC, C-Corp, S-Corp, Sole Proprietorship, etc.). We will also discuss the legal and tax consequences of each entity. This workshop will be an important first step in choosing the legal structure that works best.

Topics Include:

An overview of Sole-Proprietorships, Limited Liability Corporations (LLC), C-Corps and S-Corps
Why forming an S or C Corporation only makes sense for certain business types
Best legal structures for different business formats
Free resources for your small business

A 30 minute question and answer period with an attorney will follow.

Start Small Think Big! and Small Business Majority have teamed up to design a legal workshop series called Small Biz Pro Tip, a free workshop series facilitated by lawyers and small business policy experts, designed for California small business owners that are expanding on or improving upon their business and need access to guidance from employment, tax and labor attorneys.
