For more than 30 years, Steger Law has assisted their clients in connection with the formation, sale and other issues related to their small business entities.
If you are facing a business or other commercial law issue, we can help you explore your legal options.
Basics of Florida Business Law Issues:
Florida has many options for the formation of business entities ranging from Subchapter S Corporations (“S Corporations”) to Subchapter C Corporations (“C Corporations”) and Limited Liability Companies (“LLC’s”) as well as general and limited partnerships and joint venture agreements.
The general considerations in choosing the preferred type of business entity to conduct your business are centered around asset protection by way of limited liability as well as avoidance of double taxation. Both S Corporations and LLC”s provide asset protection in that the owner’s personal assets are shielded from the claims of business creditors. Both of these entities also avoid double taxation as the income and losses of the corporation are passed through and taxed only at the shareholder level rather than having such income taxed at both the shareholder and corporation level. The profits in C Corporations are taxed at the corporation level and the same income is also taxed when dividends are paid to the shareholders.
