Various Types of Business Structures

The business organization that you choose will determine important matters such as how you will pay your taxes, your personal liability, and who will take part in making major decisions concerning your company.

In general, the various business structures are:

  • Sole proprietorships
  • Partnerships
  • Corporations, such as S and C corporations
  • Limited liability companies (LLCs)
  • Nonprofits

Some structures are similar in many ways but each has its own key differences. For example, corporations and LLCs are similar in that they require a separation of business and personal finances and both protect one’s personal assets from any business liability. They differ, however, in that the tax reporting options for an LLC are much more flexible than for a corporation. Corporations are also recognized outside the U.S. while LLCs are not.

S and C corporations differ as well in that C corporations are required to pay corporate income tax while S corporations are not.
