Choice of entity is not about a single point in time.  It’s about choosing the right entity for a client’s business over time – formation and capitalization, operation and growth, and perhaps eventual sale or liquidation.  It’s not only about tax favorable treatment at formation but about tax (not merely federal but also state and local) when the company makes a distribution to owners or sells property or pays an employee-owner salary in lieu of a distribution.  Choice of entity involves how management authority is allocated, the fiduciary duties and liability that go along with those duties, and how these duties can be modified, if at all, and how ownership rights may not always correspond to information rights.  It’s also about a client’s specific businesses, and regulatory requirements and investor expectations in that industry or sector.  This program will provide you with a practical guide to advanced choice of entity considerations for your client’s business. 

Day 1: June 9, 2016:

  • Advanced choice of entity considerations – management, tax, finance, regulatory, employee benefit and other considerations
  • Impact of industry norms, investor expectations, and regulatory requirements on choice of entity
  • Management and information rights, and the ability to restrict
  • Fiduciary duties and liability of owners and managers, and the ability to modify these duties
  • Economic rights – choosing among capital rights, income rights, tracking rights
  • Circumstances when an unincorporated entity might be the right choice versus a C or S Corp
  • How choice of entity for a service-based business differs from other types of businesses
