Are you thinking of starting or buying a business? Be sure to contact us as early in the process as possible. We have a great deal of experience assisting clients with developing a plan and managing the process of starting or acquiring a new business.
When Starting a Business, the first critical decision is what type of entity you should choose:
Limited Liability Company
(taxed as Partnership or Corporation)
Corporation (C versus S)
We have the answers and can help guide you through the decision making process to be sure you get started using the entity that best fits your situation both now and in the future you anticipate for your business. We can also assist you through the labyrinth that is the Federal, State and, often overlooked, City Business registration processes making them as easy as possible. Get started on the right foot by contacting us today. (We are also available to assist if you have started on your own and are now unsure of how to proceed.)
If you are considering the Purchase of a Business we can help guide you through the Due Diligence process. Get us involved early so we can help you and your legal counsel structure both the Letter of Intent and Purchase and Sale documents in the manner most advantageous to you under the purchase scenario you anticipate. Often, we are able to save thousands of dollars in legal fees by quickly getting to the significant risks associated with a particular business allowing you to determine earlier in the process whether this opportunity is likely to provide an appropriate return relative to those risks (beyond the obvious performance risk inherent in every acquisition). Call or email now for an appointment to discuss this process further.
Developing a strong partnership with an experienced, knowledgeable financial and business advisor is often the difference between long term success and
short term failure.
