A key component of any successful business is making sure you are using the best ownership structure for your situation. The structure you use will potentially impact both your business and yourself as owner in a number of areas, including legal liability, taxes, financings, flexibility for the future, and recognizing different ownership interests of different parties.
While when dealing with business the most common structure used will be a company, there are many other structures which can be considered, including a sole proprietorship, general partnership, limited partnership, joint venture and trusts.
It is also important to ensure that, whichever structure you choose, it is properly maintained and kept up to date, and that you are kept apprised of ongoing developments in the law relating to that structure (such as the new Transparency Registry requirements for both federal and provincial companies).
