The purpose of this short writing is to share a few great resources to aide in the smooth operation of your business affairs.
Does Your Business Have Legal Standing?
Having your business structured legally with corporate standing, can go a long way in removing personal liability for the faults of your business. In fact, the main reason why business owners incorporate their companies is to limit personal responsibility, and subsequent repercussions when things go wrong.
Another couple of good reasons to have legal standing is because it opens up doors to new clients, brings new financial opportunities, and serves as notice to the world that your company has arrived. Speaking of the state, it may be impossible to take advantage of government contracts without legal standing, and of coarse, relative bonds. This is potential business that shouldn’t be shunned.
