Owning or operating a small business is a wonderful experience. Many small business owners take great pride in their craft. They feel a deep satisfaction going to work each day, knowing that their hard work will have direct and tangible results.
Unfortunately, along with these benefits comes substantial risks. Without properly setting up and maintaining your business, you are putting your personal assets on the line. Even if your business is legally incorporated, if you are not following all of the corporate formalities outlined under the law, your personal assets could be at risk. This means that in the event your business is sued or comes under attack, your home, cars, and retirement savings are all reachable by your creditors. Similarly, if you are sued personally, the assets of the company may be reachable by your creditors as well.
Fortunately, investing the time and resources to properly and legally set up and run your small business can protect you from these risks. Our office is here to help.
