The starting point for selecting a business form should be to gather all relevant information as to the nature of the business, business goals, individual concerns and needs, management preferences, ownership considerations, tax considerations, and other information that may help distinguish the business. From there, it is a matter of comparing the characteristics of the different business forms and analyzing which matches up best with the information gathered.

This book can help with that latter process. It includes a chart comparing the attributes of C and S corporations, general partnerships, limited partnerships, limited liability partnerships, limited liability companies, and business trusts.
