Thinking of taking your business public? Consider these factors

Whether you wish to enter the New York Stock Exchange or some other market, the decision of whether to "go public" is an important one for any business owner. The investment capital that comes with an initial public offering (IPO) can take your business to new heights, but there are additional legal hurdles for businesses that go public.

Between disclosure requirements and additional costs relating to registration, the pros and cons of going public are important for any size company to weigh. Small businesses and startups have even more to consider. Making an initial public offering is a long and expensive process, but there are some rules that work in favor of smaller companies.

Selecting the right legal structure for your business

Starting a new business is exciting. You've decided on the product or service you plan to provide and raised the funds you need to get started. However, one crucial decision remains: What kind of legal structure should you choose?

Various legal structures offer businesses different benefits and drawbacks in three main categories: taxes, liabilities, and registration requirements. Below, we discuss the advantages and disadvantages of the most common legal structures for new businesses.
