SBDC offers Forms of Business Structure in series

Forms of Business Structure is the second in the spring Advantage Series presented by the Small Business Development Center (SBDC) in the Business and Industry Center at Central Lakes College in Brainerd.

From 6-7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 5, in E151 at CLC, Jay Bock will explain what form of business entity to establish.

The most common forms of business are sole proprietorship, partnership, corporation, S corporation or a Limited Liability Company (LLC). Each form has advantages and disadvantages in complexity and taxation.

Choosing the right business form requires a delicate balancing of competing considerations. Learn how to select, plan and organize the business form that is a perfect fit for you. If you are thinking of starting or purchasing a business, this session is for you.

This series will include four 1.5-hour sessions that will help you be better prepared if you are looking to start a business. Some of these sessions will also be helpful if you’re in business already.

Followup counseling is available from the Small Business Development Center’s team of consultants at no charge.

Watch for the other upcoming sessions in the series: Marketing Your Small Business, Accounting Tools, and Business Planning.

Admission is $30 per person for each session or $100 per person for all four in the series.

Registration deadline is seven days prior to the class date. To register and to read session descriptions of other classes in the series, visit
