Ease of setup and management

Just set up and get to running your business.

Are you shooting for the stars for a big exit?

Nonprofit

Serve the public good as a nonprofit

Starting off right is the first step in getting donor support.

Reasons to incorporate as a nonprofit

Get tax breaks

You're eligible for state, federal and certain other income tax exemptions.

Lets you apply for 501c3 status

Contributions to certain types of nonprofits are tax deductible.

Protect your assets

Members and directors are shielded from personal liability for the nonprofit’s actions.

What is a 501c3 organization?

The term 501(c)(3) refers to a specific IRS tax code. To qualify, the nonprofit must meet IRS requirements. If your organization qualifies, we’ll help complete and file your application.

Eligibility for grants and donations

Only qualified nonprofits can receive grants from other nonprofits and government agencies. Also, contributions to qualified nonprofits are deductible on the donor’s income tax returns.

Sole Proprietorship

You've gone into business for yourself. But that doesn't mean you're all alone.

You don't need to file paperwork to start a sole proprietorship. But there are some things you may want to consider to get the most out of your business.

Is a sole proprietorship right for you?

If you're in business for yourself and you haven't created a formal business structure, then chances are,

you're already a sole proprietor–so make sure you understand the implications.

Liability

Sole proprietors are personally liable for the debts of their business. If the business is sued, your house, savings, and other personal assets are at risk.

Taxes

A sole proprietor is responsible to report all business profits as personal income, and pay self-employment tax on those profits, to cover Social Security and Medicare.

Hard to Raise Capital

There are no partners, shares, or membership interests in a sole proprietorship so it's generally difficult to attract investors without changing your business structure.

So you're open for business. What next?

A sole proprietorship is simple to start, but that doesn't mean you should let your guard down.

A little preparation goes a long way.

DBA

If you're a sole proprietor, the legal name of your business is your own name. In most states, if you want to operate the business under a different name, you'll need to file for a DBA, "doing business as."

Limit your liability

As a sole proprietor, you'll be personally liable for your business's debts and other liabilities. You may want to consider operating as a limited liability company (LLC) instead, so you're better protected.

Business Licenses

You may need state or local permits and/or licenses to legally operate your business. We can help you figure out the business licenses you need.

Tax Advice

Business taxes can be complicated. Once you join our Business Advantage Pro legal plan, our partners at 1-800-Accountants can help you prepare and file your tax forms correctly and on time.

DBA (Doing Business As)

Bring your business to life with a DBA

Make a first and lasting impression with your "doing business as" name.

Reasons to incorporate as a nonprofit

It may be legally required.

Use a different business name than your entity's official name or your personal name.

Set up a business bank account.

For sole proprietorships and general partnerships, many banks require a DBA.

Expand and grow your business.

Name new business lines and keep them separate to cut down on paperwork and expenses.

It's a valuable asset to your business

Your business name is how customers find and recognize you, so a unique DBA can have a positive impact. The registration process can also help you avoid legal problems by making sure you don't choose a name that's confusingly similar to another business in your area.

We know the process – we make it easy

Every state and county has different regulations about DBAs. We don't just send you a blank form. We'll do a preliminary name search (where required) and file your DBA statement with the appropriate office. If proof of publication is required, we'll publish your DBA at no extra cost.
