BUSINESS ENTITY FORMATION AND CORPORATE MAINTENANCE

     Whether you want to start a new company or maintain the necessary formalities of an existing company, it is advisable to have an attorney with experience in business matters to provide the advice you need.  This firm has experience in forming corporations, limited liability companies, and partnerships.  We also provide services related to registration of foreign entities so as to become authorized to conduct business in the State of Texas or other states.

 

  

 

FORMING A NEW BUSINESS ENTITY?

What you need to know.


There are several choices as to which form of entity to select and each type may provide your new venture with an avenue by which to conduct your operations.  The first thing you should do is talk to you CPA or other tax advisor as the choice of business entity may have differing tax consequences.  Once you have determined the form of the entity through which you decide conduct your business, this firm can provide the necessary services to properly form your new company.  The basic listing of entities to choose from include, but is not limited to the following: Sole Proprietorship, Corporation, Limited Liability Company, General Partnership, or Limited Partnership.  Each entity is different and some provide protection from personal liability.  Formation in Texas is not required and this firm has experience forming entities in other states as well.

There are many services available which purport to set up new companies; however, it is preferable to get it right the first time rather than having to go back and fix errors and omissions created by sub-standard alleged entity formation service providers who are not professionals.  These companies generally fail to provide all of the necessary documentation for proper formation of a new entity and do not provide you with the requisite legal knowledge regarding proper maintenance of corporate formalities.  Generally, the failure to comply with the necessary corporate formalities can result in the elimination of the personal protection afforded by a business entity.

You will need to determine where you wish to conduct your business and whether or not you elect to form your entity in Texas or otherwise.  You will need to determine who will serve as your registered agent as well.

 

What this firm can do for your new company.

This firm has experience forming new business entities and can draft and file all of the necessary filings to properly form your new company.  Additionally, this firm will draft your company's governing documents (such as Bylaws for a corporation), supply a corporate book for maintenance of all of the company's documents and filings, advise on obtaining a federal tax identification number, advise on elections to be made by the company under federal law, provide interest owner certificates (shares in the event of a corporation) and provide advice on the proper documentation of issuance and transfer of ownership, provide initial resolutions (including banking resolutions) so as to get your business started, and provide all of the business formation advice necessary to get your company started.  

 

ALREADY HAVE A BUSINESS? 

In the event you have an existing business, you should ensure that you are in compliance with all of the necessary corporate formalities so as to protect your assets and the assets of the company.  Client's have come to this firm after having another party allegedly set up their company only to find that the necessary formalities have not been followed.  Have your governing documents properly prepared?  Have the shares or certificates been properly issued?  Has any transfer been properly documented?  Are restrictions on share transfer properly addressed?  Is there a Shareholder's Agreement and is it enforceable?  What happens to the company if a shareholder dies?
