Business Structure

Creating the right legal structure for your business can be time consuming yet it is critical to the future success of your company. Company structures include Sole Proprietorship, Partnership, Limited Liability Company (LLC), Corporation and Non-Profit (Charity). The best structure often depends on the maturity and size of your company. Many business owners find their business structure changes over time.

The personal tax liability of the owners and how your taxes are paid depending on your business structure. For example, a sole trader is quick and easy to set up and has minimal costs compared to other structures. However, the sole trader is ‘solely’ responsible for any losses the business may make which could affect personal assets. Income and losses are taxed on the individuals’ personal tax income return and the sole trader cannot separate themselves from the business.

We advise clients on the best possible structure to meet their needs and maximise tax efficiency throughout the lifecycle of their business in the UK.
