Partnership: Two or more individuals own and operate together
Corporation or C Corp: Separate legal entity from its owners
S corporation or S Corp: Type of corporation where profits and losses are passed directly to the owner’s personal income without being subject to corporate tax rates

Each structure has its own set of rules when it comes to taxes and legal liability. Ashton Accountants can discuss the legal structures in depth to help you determine which one is best for your business. We can also assist you with filling out the correct documents for the legal structure you select.
