New Business Formation

Launching a New Business Means Getting the Basics Right

Thinking of owning your own business?

Opening your own business is exciting and thrilling, but there are details that need to be addressed before you file for a business license and tax identification number.  The first key choice you must make is what form your business will operate under.  Limited Liability Companies are easy to organize, but there may be benefits to selecting a Subchapter S corporation that make the tradeoffs worthwhile.  We can help you make the right choice.

A methodical plan of action is needed to fulfill your dream or goal of being your own boss and running a successful business. Success lies in the approach you choose to take. We help you avoid the common pitfalls that many new small business owners make when starting their new venture. 

Fosselman & Associates, CPAs have been in business for more than 30 years and we work closely with more than 100 companies in any given year.  When you choose us as your for your tax, accounting or payroll needs, you get the benefit of our experience.
