Before you start a business, it will be important to consider which legal structure is best suited to your business purposes and objectives. A sound legal structure will form a strong foundation for you to build a good business that can shoulder growth and increasing business opportunities.
If you have already run a business for some time, your business may be facing growth or major changes. It may be a good time to consider restructuring your current business set up.
There are various options available to you depending on your unique circumstances. Business structures can range from sole proprietorships to partnership, company (proprietary limited, limited by guarantee), corporate trustee, trust, charity organisations, incorporated associations, complex trust structures.
At JK Lawyers, your business is our business. We have previously assisted many businesses, and even not for profit organisations, to establish and or revise the most suitable business structure for their requirements.
