Make Educated Business Decisions
You are super busy and faced with many decisions throughout the course of starting a company. One of the more important questions you are faced with is the type of business entity that you should form. This course discusses and gives examples of the general partnership, limited partnership, corporation, limited liability company, sole proprietor, "doing business as", and others. This course is perfect for those starting new business ventures as well as small business owners seeking to learn if they should be in a different type of business entity.
Content and Course Overview
In 8 Lectures and 59 minutes of content, I tell you about the various business entities available, using many examples for clarity. You will learn why the corporation has been so widely used, as well as why the LLC has been so popular as of late. I go into detail about how exactly the various business entities vary in limiting liability (including how sometimes they don't limit liability at all).
We also discuss the basics of business entity taxation, as well as some advanced taxation topics, such as how an LLC can be taxed as a corporation to save money on self-employment tax.
I designed this course to be beneficial for everyone, from the rookie entrepreneur to the seasoned small business owner.
After engaging in the lectures and participating in the end-of-course exam, you will understand the pros and cons of various business entities better than many lawyers.
