Types of Business Structures

When you set out to begin a new business venture, you have hundreds of variables to consider before you can bring your idea to life. One of the most crucial decisions that you must make as a new business owner is how to categorize your business.

If you are considering beginning a new business, you need knowledgeable legal advice regarding how to most effectively structure your business. Please call your Iowa business lawyers at LaMarca Law Group, P.C., at (515) 705-0233 today.

For-Profit Structures

There are five types of for-profit business structures recognized by the IRS:

  • Limited Liability Company (LLC)
  • Sole Proprietorship
  • S Corporation
  • Corporation
  • Partnership

Each of these structures has unique benefits, so it is important to consider each of them as you determine which is best for your business.

Not For Profit Structure

If you are forming your business as a charitable organization or foundation, as part of a faith-based organization, or other entity whose purpose is not to generate profit, there is a structure specifically for you, as well:

  • Nonprofit Corporation

Though this business model can be tax-exempt, it is still governed by codes that you need to know.
