Legal business structures in Pennsylvania

An individual who wants to start a business in Pennsylvania must follow several steps to ensure the venture complies with state and federal regulations. One of the first things entrepreneurs must do is decide what sort of legal structure they want to use. There are several factors that may affect the choice of legal structure, including the size, tax considerations and operational model of the business.

Tips to avoid litigation

Business owners in Pennsylvania have a lot on their plate, and dealing with a litigation suit is expensive, time consuming and it takes focus away from building and running the business. Smart owners take steps to avoid any chances of litigation, and they understand that prevention is the best course of action.

Insurance to protect your business during liability lawsuits

Many entrepreneurs in Pennsylvania worry about business litigation. If they run a brick-and-mortar business the possibility of getting sued after an unfortunate accident may weigh heavily on a person’s mind. The unfortunate fact is that no matter how much a company remains committed to safety, an accident is always possible.

When a small business cannot repay its debts

Businesses of all sizes in Pennsylvania struggle with liquidity. This is especially true for companies that sell a product as opposed to a service. Products are assets, but they do not bring in cash until they are sold. If they are sold on credit, then they do not bring in cash until the other company settles their debts. It comes as no surprise then that many companies turn to business loans to make ends meet or cover temporary gaps in the budget.

Should your business be an LLC or a sole proprietorship?

If you want to open a business in Pennsylvania, one of the first things you must do is register with the state. Before you register, you should decide what sort of business structure you want to use. Certain legal and tax considerations may be different depending on which type of business structure you choose. If you are the only one who works at your business, chances are you will register as either a sole proprietorship or an LLC.

Things to consider before entering into a partnership

If you are looking to start a business in Pennsylvania, you may be thinking of getting a partner. While entering into a partnership can be very beneficial for both parties, it can also be a disaster if both sides are not on the same page. Ask yourself and your potential partner some hard questions before making it official.
