Business Entity Formation
"Failure is simply the opportunity to begin again, this time more intelligently."
- Henry Ford
Henry Ford started three different auto related business entities before finding success. In 1903, after setting a new land-speed record and bringing on additional investors, Ford reincorporated Ford & Malcomson, Ltd., as the Ford Motor Company. Now, more than 100 years later, the Ford Motor Company is the second-largest automaker in the U.S. and is prominently ranked in the top ten on the 2011 Fortune 500 list.
An integral part of a successful business model is a legally-compliant and correctly-organized business entity. Formally establishing a business entity will probably be one of the most important investments that you make in your business. Properly forming a legally-recognized business entity provides a business owner the important possibilities of perpetual existence, personal-asset protection, flexible tax-planning, and business credibility. Additionally, the form of business entity that you choose determines what income tax treatment you will receive, which income tax returns you will have to file, and what records you will have to keep.
