Tax Implications of a Business Entity SelectionThe various types of business entities also have correlating tax implications. By speaking with you and learning about your goals for your business, I can recommend a type of entity that is best in line with your goals and needs. I can also advise you of how the taxation issues apply to that type of entity selection made and what those taxes mean for your business.

Protection of Your Personal AssetsThe other major consideration in choosing the proper entity selection for your business or investment activity is how best to protect your personal assets. Conducting business or investing through the proper entity can effectively place a firewall between your business or investment assets and your personal assets.
Should you be sued over your business or investing activity it is possible to structure your affairs in such a way as to merely place your business or investment assets at risk rather than exposing your personal assets such as your primary residence to the litigation risk of your business or investing activity. My experience and education enable me to choose the proper blend of tax and liability protection attributes of a chosen entity to best fit the business or investing activity you are contemplating or currently conducting.
