Forming a Partnership or Corporation
For every business, the question of what business structure to operate under is an important one. Our experienced business lawyers can help you identify which of the following business structures best suits your needs and goals.
- PARTNERSHIP. There are many types of partnerships, which depend on the nature of the partnership agreement and the division of responsibility for the business among partners.
- CORPORATION. A corporation offers business owners the benefit of limited liability, but forming and operating a corporation involves certain filing and record-keeping requirements, as well as the observation of corporate formalities.
- S CORPORATION. An S corporation has the same basic structure as a traditional corporation, but offers some of the tax benefits of a partnership.
- LIMITED LIABILITY COMPANY. A limited liability company, or “LLC,” provides the limited liability features of a corporation and the operational flexibility of a partnership. There are also certain tax advantages to operating as an LLC.
- SOLE PROPRIETORSHIP. In a sole proprietorship, you alone own the company and are responsible for its assets and liabilities.
How to Form an LLC in New Hampshire
There are 5 steps when it comes to forming an LLC in New Hampshire:
- Name your LLC.
- Choose a registered agent. This is an individual or business entity that is responsible for receiving your tax forms, legal documents, or any official correspondence on behalf of your business.
- File the Certificate of Formation and pay the $100 fee (online or via mail).
- Create an operating agreement -- this is not required, but it is advisable to do so so that all business owners are on the same page about the LLC.
- It reduces the chances of conflict in the future.
- Obtain an EIN (Employer Identification Number). This helps the IRS identify your business for tax purposes.
