Types of Business Organizations
There are five types of business organizations that you may fall into:
A business that is owned by only one person. It is the easiest to set up and the least costly. The owner of the business has unlimited liability, meaning creditors can go after the assets of the business if they are not paid. Sole proprietorship is most common in small businesses.
A business that is owned by two or more people. The owners divide the profits from the business among themselves. They also have unlimited liability on their business.
A business organization that is legally separate from the owners. The owners are considered to be stockholders and have limited liability but also limited in their involvement with the corporation. A board of directors controls the operations.
Limited Liability Company
Limited Liability Company (LLC) is a hybrid company that is both a corporation and partnership. A LLC is not incorporated and not considered to be a corporation. The owners enjoy limited liability and are taxed like a partnership or corporation.
A business that is owned by a group of people and for all of their benefits. The owners are called members and it is classified as incorporated or unincorporated. Examples include a credit union and housing cooperatives.
