Pro Tip: Choosing the Right Legal Entity For Your Business

Pro Tip: Choosing the Right Legal Entity For Your Business from Start Small Think Big on Vimeo.

The importance of legal entity choice has never been more important when structuring your small business. We paid special attention to child care providers although this webinar is applicable to all business owners.

This webinar was a part of Start Small Think Big! and Small Business Majority’s Small Biz Pro Tip Series where we offer free legal expertise to growing business owners in California. Facilitated by a lawyer, this workshop was designed to give you an overview of the various legal structures that are available to you if you decide to start your own child care business (e.g., LLC, C-Corp, S-Corp, Sole Proprietorship, etc.). We also discussed the legal and tax consequences of each entity. This workshop is an important first step in choosing the legal structure that works best for a child care business.

Topics Include:

  • An overview of Sole-Proprietorships, Limited Liability Corporations (LLC), C-Corps and S-Corps

  • Why forming an S or C Corporation only makes sense for a small number of child care providers

  • Best legal structures for at home daycare providers and out of home daycare providers
