Choice of entity for service-based businesses differs from businesses that produce or market tangible goods. Service-based businesses have regulatory and liability risks that are different than companies that produce goods. This is particularly the case for professional practices in law and medicine. These businesses also generate income that may be treated differently for federal tax purposes, including application of the new 3.8% tax on net investment income.

Choice of entity for service-based businesses differs from businesses that produce or market tangible goods.  Service-based businesses have regulatory and liability risks that are different than companies that produce goods.  This is particularly the case for professional practices in law and medicine. These businesses also generate income that may be treated differently for federal tax purposes, including application of the new 3.8% tax on net investment income.  Furthermore, the management and ownership of service-based businesses, and the way they are financed, indicate different entity selections than for other businesses.  This program will provide you with a practical guide through sophisticated tax, regulatory, practical and other considerations of choosing an entity for a service-based entity, including professional medical and legal practices.

  • Issues for new entities and entities that change form because of changes in law, owner circumstances, or business
  • Major self-employment tax and fringe benefit considerations, including the 3.8% tax on net investment income
  • Using multiple entities to achieve variable ownership, management and tax goals
