Types of business structures

Various types of business formation can be used, including:

  • Sole trader
  • Partnership
  • Limited Company
  • Limited Liability Partnership (LLP)

Each structure has its own advantages and disadvantages, and our commercial lawyers can discuss these with you to ensure that you make the best decision for your particular circumstances and needs. We will also discuss arrangements with clients such as joint ventures and the formation of groups of companies where applicable.

Choosing the right business structure

When determining the correct formation for your business, certain questions should be addressed, such as:

  • Who will the officers be and what will their various rights and responsibilities be?
  • Who will be able to own shares and what will their rights be?
  • Where will the office be located (including the headquarters and registered office)?
  • What will the financial structure be for the business?

We can help clients set up their company and can advise on the best corporate structure in their circumstances as well as assisting the officers on day-to-day matters relating to the running of the business.
