When you are ready to purchase an existing business or you’re thinking about a new company you’d like to start, you first have to decide which type of organization (or “business entity”) is the right one for your business. There are advantages and disadvantages to each business type, whether you’re considering a C corporation, an S corporation, or an LLC.

Your business entity has a large impact on your taxes and other liabilities. From your company’s inception through its growth and development, Torkelson & Associates can advise you on choosing an entity type and later restructuring if doing so presents an advantageous situation.
