Section 1: Different types of businesses Organizations When starting a business, there are many options. There are four types of business organizations: corporation, sole proprietorship and partnership.
Solo Proprietorship: This is where a sole proprietorship can be described. It’s a company that is owned and managed by one person. This type of organization is the easiest and most widely used. It is simple to start and manage a sole proprietorship. There are minimal regulations and paperwork. One of its main drawbacks is the fact that the owner will be personally responsible for any obligations or debts the company may incur.
Partnerships: This is where two or more persons own the business and manage it. You can have a limited or general partnership. All partners in a general partnership are responsible for all obligations and debts. A limited partnership has both limited and general partners. The general partners are personally responsible for the business’ debts and obligations. However, the liability of the limited partners is limited. A partnership allows you to share ownership of and manage the company. One of its main drawbacks is the fact that each partner will be responsible for all obligations and debts.
Corporation: This is an entity legal that is distinct and independent from its owners. Non-profit and for-profit corporations can both exist. A corporation has the advantage that its owners are not liable for any debts or obligations. However, corporations can be more complicated and expensive to create and maintain. They also require more paperwork and regulatory requirements.
Limited Liability Company: An LLC is an LLC that has limited liability. It is a business structure which combines both the protection and tax advantages of a corporation. A LLC has the advantage that its owners can have ownership.
