In Arizona, there are approximately 151,000 business corporations, 43,000 non-profit corporations, and 597,000 limited liability companies. It could safely be said that choosing the proper form of business entity is the most important decision a new business owner must make. The various forms of business entities include sole proprietorships (for one person), partnerships (for two or more persons), limited liability partnerships, limited liability companies, for-profit corporations (both C-corporations and S-corporations), and non-profit corporations. The decision as to which business entity to choose generally involves both legal and tax considerations, and should be made only after careful review and analysis of the nature of business to be conducted, the number and type of owners, the required capital contributions, the expected number of employees, and the anticipated annual revenue.
The attorneys at Loose, Brown & Hobkirk, P.C. have formed hundreds of business entities for their clients, including all of the various types of entities mentioned above.
