S Corp vs. LLC: Which One Should I Form

  • 8 min read

“How should I structure my new business – as an LLC or as an S Corp?”

I get that question from time to time from clients who want to start a new business.

But there are really two separate questions embedded there:

Question 1 (State Law Form): Should I form my company under state laws as a “Limited Liability Company” or as a “Corporation”?

Legal Entity

  • 5 min read

A legal entity refers to a legally standing or lawful partnership. That partnership could be an association, a trust, a proprietorship, a corporation, or an individual. All such entities are legally able to be accountable for activities against the law, enter contracts or agreements, incur and pay back debts, be sued and sue other entities, and assume obligations. While legal entities are able to do many things, a legal entity cannot hold office or vote. 

Legal entities are frequently seen in scenarios and instances where an individual can take a class-action lawsuit against a company or the manufacturer that suppl

Nonprofit Organization Definition

  • 5 min read

A nonprofit organization is an entity formed to meet a specific tax-exempt purpose aimed at benefiting the public, a specific group of individuals or the membership of the nonprofit. Nonprofit organizations are prohibited from generating revenue, but instead excess revenues are put back into the operation of the organization – they are not disseminated to owners or investors.

Many of the most familiar nonprofit organizations are 501(c)(3) charitable organizations.

Mission and Tax-Exempt Status

Nonprofits are normally organized around social causes or to serve the public good in ways that government agencies cannot. The mission statements of nonprofits are often tied to specific goals in areas like public welfare, public safety, religion, science, education, art, env

Rule 701

  • 5 min read

Rule 701: What is it?

Rule 701 comes from the Securities Act of 1933. It's a federal exemption that frees companies from registering stock option grants and rewards for performance. No forms need to be filed with the SEC, nor do fees have to be paid. But there are conditions and limitations that come with awarding stock options under Rule 701. The Rule has strict mathematical limits that cannot be exceeded. If the value of the equity goes over $5 million, 15 percent of the issuer's total assets, or 15 percent of the outstanding securities in the class in any consecutive 12-month period, special disclosure requirements are triggered.
