Business Formation

The form of the entity that is chosen for a business can significantly impact the daily operations of the business and the tax liability of both the business and its owners.  Certain business entities are also used to provide some form of asset protection for the business owner.  We will counsel you though the process of forming a corporation, an LLC or other corporate entity, as well as how to make any necessary filings with the IRS and obtain the proper Missouri business licenses. We will also draft any operating agreements, fictitious name registrations, or other corporate compliance documents that may be necessary. With every business formation that we undertake our focus will remain on your goals and recommending the best business entity to suit those needs.  We will advise and seek your input from the initial meeting through document preparation and filing with the proper state agencies.

Common business entities that are recognized in the State of Missouri include:

  • Sole Proprietorships
  • Partnerships
  • Corporations
