Existing Business Resources
After incorporating a business, you may find it necessary to change the legal structure that your company was originally formed under. This may be for a variety of reasons - perhaps you now want to limit your personal liability, create a business entity to pass along to a family member or take advantage of other circumstances.
Whatever the reason, some processes may only be possible if you change your existing legal structure. As every type has its own tax and legal obligations, the process is complex and different for every structure. For this reason, it is advised that small business owners discuss their plans to change structures with a professional business adviser.
However, there are also some timing issues to keep in mind, as it is best to change a legal structure at the start of a new year, according to Poznak Law Firm.
Before choosing a legal structure, be sure to consider who will be the primary decision maker, the amount of taxes your company expects to have to pay, whether or not your structure will protect your personal assets and the longevity of the business, among other factors.
