A Colleague and I are starting a Life Coaching business
A Colleague and I are starting a Life Coaching business together. Currently, we are sole proprietors, living in Georgia and Virginia. We are becoming 1099 contractors of a Coaching company (I think Inc.) that specializes in working with clients with PTSD. We will be Coaches, NOT therapists.We are trying to decide the best tax/legal structure that best protects us personally and professionally.Questions:1. What are the advantages or disadvantages of forming an LLC together?2. Should we just form our own LLC and collaborate?3. What kind of liability do we need? We will not be covered by the larger Coaching company.Thank you!Jan Klos in Atlanta
On a gh level, I understand the difference between an LLC
Dear Sir or Madam,On a high level, I understand the difference between an LLC and a C corporation or a full fledged corporation. However, if there is double taxation for corporations, why will any company form a corporation. Also if LLC is a simple structure and better of taxes, why is every company not an LLC. For example why large companies like AT&T, IBM, Facebook, Google, Amazon, etc. are not LLCs. Is there a difference when they go public or allocates shares before going public. I am being offered partnership in an LLC where all partners are US citizens.Ali

I have a couple CA corporate law questions: My
Hello, I have a couple CA corporate law questions: My ex-wife and I owned a CA C corporation up until seven years ago when she quit, filed for divorce, and the corporation was abandoned. A business evaluation was done, a value was determined for the company, and I paid her half the value. Our final divorce judgment says that I'm the sole owner and we are to cooperate in transferring her share to me. I gave her a stock certificate for half the shares originally allocated to the corp and the bottom filled out to transfer the shares to me. She signed it and had a friend sign as a witness, but she didn't date it. So question #1, should I kick it back to her and ask that she date it? Does it matter? Then second question is what forms do I use to send a copy to the IRS and to the CA FTB so that is put on record with both feds and state? Thanks.
