What Every Small Business Owner Should Know

There are many ramifications of the legal organization of a business - legal, tax, and liability issues that must be evaluated. This workshop focuses primarily on two types of legal organizational structures, the corporation and LLC, along with the advantages and disadvantages of each, as well as how partnerships and sole proprietorships compare.
