York, PA Business Attorneys Will Help You Explore Every Entity Choice

Navigating through the entity selection process can be daunting for first-timers. Our adept business formation lawyers simplify the process by guiding you through a range of available choices:

Sole Proprietorship

The simplest and least expensive business type for a one-person operation. Drawbacks include unlimited personal liability, which could put personal assets at risk.

Limited Liability Company (LLC)

An LLC combines the operations efficiency and tax advantages of a partnership with the reduced personal liability of a corporation. However, it may not safeguard personal assets from creditors.

General Partnership

Two or more individuals share ownership in this type of business. General partnerships have relatively easy formation and dissolution procedures but hold partners jointly liable for debts.

Limited Liability Partnership (LLP)

An LLP is a more formal version of a general partnership. It offers increased liability protection and simpler compliance requirements.


This is the most common incorporated business type. Owners are liable only to the extent of their investments. It has a separate legal and tax life.


Differing from a C-corporation, an S-corporation undergoes taxation of shareholder income at the personal level. Operational procedures are strict and the number of shareholders is limited.

Professional Corporation (PC)

Primarily for professionals like engineers, accountants and healthcare professionals, a PC may also prove beneficial for unincorporated businesses seeking tax breaks.
