Business Development

Small businesses develop at different rates.  However, at a certain point, every business should evaluate whether it is operating with the most efficient entity possible.  Generally speaking, there is a tipping point for most sole proprietors and/or self-employed individuals to restructure to an S-Corp.  Nevertheless, an experience attorney should be involved in determining whether it is time to make the switch. 

At Spaulding Legal, APC we have developed an S-Corp tax savings calculator that assists in analyzing if incorporating is the right strategy. If so, we have the knowledge and experience to get the corporation formed properly, which will avoid issues down the road. 

Utilizing the correct entity when forming or operating a business is essential. It can help reduce taxes, limit personal liability, and strengthen compliance. Give us a call to find out more about entity selection.

Under the right circumstances forming an S-Corp can save thousands in taxes each year. However, there are other factors that must be considered before making the switch. Give us a call to determine whether forming an S-Corp is right for you.
