How is your local business structured?

The following information is from the Small Business Administration (SBA). Additional details to help you with your business can be found on their website:

Small Business Structure Types:

Sole proprietorship                      
A sole proprietorship is easy to form and gives you complete control of your business. You're automatically considered to be a sole proprietorship if you do business activities but don't register as any other kind of business.

Sole proprietorships do not produce a separate business entity. This means your business assets and liabilities are not separate from your personal assets and liabilities.

Partnerships are the simplest structure for two or more people to own a business together. There are two common kinds of partnerships: limited partnerships (LP) and limited liability partnerships (LLP).

Limited partnerships have only one general partner with unlimited liability, and all other partners have limited liability. The partners with limited liability also tend to have limited control over the company, which is documented in a partnership agreement. Profits are passed through to personal tax returns, and the general partner, the partner without limited liability, must also pay self-employment taxes.

Limited liability partnerships are similar to limited partnerships, but give limited liability to every owner. An LLP protects each partner from debts against the partnership, they won't be responsible for the actions of other partners.

Partnerships can be a good choice for businesses with multiple owners, professional groups (like attorneys), and groups who want to test their business idea before forming a more formal business.

Limited liability company (LLC)                      
An LLC lets you take advantage of the benefits of both the corporation and partnership business structures.

LLCs protect you from personal liability in most instances, your personal assets, like your vehicle, house, and savings accounts, won't be at risk in case your LLC faces bankruptcy or lawsuits.

Run your business using a Business Plan

Having a Business Plan to guide you through starting and managing your business is helpful. Your business plan is a blueprint for how to register, operate, market and grow your local business. It will help you in the decision making processes of your business.

Your business plans can help you raise capital, get a business loan or bring new partners into your business. Financial organizations and lending sources will want to see that your business plan reflects a ROI, Return-On-Investment. Your business plan is the tool you’ll use to convince people that working with you, or investing in your company is a smart choice.

If you are going to pitch your business idea, product or service to a lender or investor; your business plan will be what you use to do so.

How to write your Business Plan

If you need some guidance or ideas on how to write or modify your business plan, the Small Business Administration provides some various examples that you may be able to model.
