    WHAT TYPE OF BUSINESS SHOULD I START?

    The decision to start a business is a big one, and once made, you’ll want to think about what type of business vehicle is right for you. There are various options—from a sole proprietorship, a partnership, joint venture or a corporation, the choices can be confusing.

    It’s very important to determine what kind of a business you want to start and what your future goals are. Each type of business vehicle has its pros, its cons, and its cost implications, so it’s crucial to know what each one is.

    WHAT IS A CORPORATION?

    A Corporation is a legal person that’s created for the purposes of handling some type of business affair. This could include running a business or an organization, holding property, or even just holding financial assets. The owners of a corporation are its shareholders. The decisions a corporation makes are dictated by its Directors, Officers and Shareholders.

    A corporation can be sued, just like a regular person, but can also protect an individual from being sued personally. Its income is taxed differently and is often used as a vehicle for tax planning in a variety of circumstances.

    WHAT IS A SHAREHOLDER AGREEMENT?

    A Shareholder Agreement is a document that is drafted to manage the relationship between shareholders of a corporation. A corporation is owned by its shareholders and a whole wealth of planning within a corporation can define not only classes of shares (and therefore classes of shareholders) and their related rights and obligations, but also how a shareholder is admitted, or what happens in the case of conflict, death or disability.

    Having a Shareholder Agreement helps to minimize shareholder disputes and to provide mechanisms on how to admit a new shareholder into the corporation. It’s also important when dealing with the death or disability of a shareholder, when outside parties entering the corporation is not the desire of the surviving shareholders.

    Many court battles between shareholders have been fought over a lack of a Shareholder Agreement and many have been saved from battles for having written one. If you’re thinking of entering, starting, or already are part of a corporation with other shareholders, this type of agreement can be an invaluable tool and resource for the future.
