If you have the entrepreneur kind of spirit, starting your own business may be just the thing for you. If you are entering the business all by yourself, then I am guessing that your business will have a sole proprietorship legal form of business structure, or if it is joint venture, you will start a partnership. Regardless or the legal form, before you embark on this business starting journey, you will need to know the legal forms and the conditions that apply in the state where your business will be registered. Let’s say that you want to start a Florida based business.
If this is the case, you will need to understand the Florida legal forms on business structures, and based on the condition and your starting capital, you can register the proper legal form of the business. If you intend on starting a small service business, I would strongly suggest the sole proprietorship where the personal liability is not a major reason for concern and for which you won’t need a big sum of money borrowed from a bank. The truth is that the small one ownership companies are relatively inexpensive and simple to establish, and this goes for their maintenance, too. If you feel like you want to expand your business over some period of time, you can always to that by converting the current business legal form into another. However, it is important to accentuate the fact that as the business grows, so does the risk of the personal liability, and this is an excellent time to convert the business into a corporation or a limited liability company (LLC).
