Business Setup

New business startup is an incredibly exciting time, but it can be a challenging one as well.

You’re NOT worried about those technical business setup issues? Well, you should be! If not taken care of properly, financial business setup and company registration issues can become huge problems down the road.

Incorporation: We can help!

Have you considered incorporating your business? What are the implications of corporation formation versus a sole proprietorship? What are the tax benefits? Which one better protects your personal assets, both legally and from a tax perspective? As a full corporation services company, Fredrick James can answer these questions for you!

Sole Proprietorship, Partnership, C-corporation, S-corporation, Limited Liability Partnership (LLP) or a Limited Liability Company (LLC) each have their own tax requirements to consider when discussing corporate formation. We can consult with you to help you determine which business formation model suits your specific needs.
