If you are thinking of opening a business, SCORE’s free webinar on how to structure a business should be on your calendar.
The online class will be led by Carol L. King, CPA, PFS and will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., Wednesday, Sept. 22.
Asheville SCORE, Counselors to America’s Small Business, is part of a national nonprofit association dedicated to entrepreneur education and the formation, growth and success of the nation’s small businesses.
Available business structures include sole proprietorship, partnership, limited liability company (LLC) and corporation (C or S). All will be discussed to include advantages and disadvantages of each for entrepreneurs. Topics will include simplicity, cost, liability protection and tax advantages.
The structure selected for a business influences everything from day-to-day operations to taxes to how much of personal assets are at risk. This workshop will review the four main business entity choices and help would-be and new business owners choose the best option for their portfolio.
