Alabama Business Entity Selection: What's the Best Choice for Your Client?
Live Webinar: Thursday, March 16, 2017
2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Central / 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Eastern
An Alabama client is starting a business. Great! Now comes the tricky part -- advising the client on the best form of entity.
What is the best fit — corporation, S-corporation, partnership, limited liability company (LLC), or sole proprietorship? If you’re choosing a LLC, are you familiar with the provisions of the revised Alabama LLC Act, which became applicable to all LLCs in Alabama on January 1, 2017?
No specific entity form is the “correct” choice for all circumstances. Because of the needs of the client, the size of the business, the capital needs, and the nature of the business, one or more entity forms may be more beneficial than others. For example, for a small business, a LLC is often the lowest cost and highest yield investment clients can make.
Join your colleagues for a 60-minute CLE webinar on the ins and outs of various business formation structures in Alabama, including a review of the latest revisions to the Alabama LLC Act. Your presenter will deliver practical, use-it-now guidance for making the best recommendations.
- Evaluating your client's options
