Understanding Business Structures

Embarking on a new business venture is an exhilarating step and one of the first and most important decisions you will make is choosing the appropriate business structure. The main types of business structures include:

Sole Trader: Simplest form, easy to set up and manage.
Partnership: Two or more people manage and operate a business in accordance with the terms of a partnership agreement.
Company: A legal entity separate from its shareholders.
Trust: An entity that holds property or income for the benefit of others.

Each structure has its implications for control, taxation, and personal liability. Decisions you make today can impact your business for years to come.


The Role Of A Commercial Lawyer In Your Business Set-up

The inception of a business is a venture filled with ambition, excitement, and vision, but it also comes with a web of legal considerations. A commercial lawyer is not just an advisor but a cornerstone in the founding of your business, providing advice and a suite of services that pave the way for a secure and compliant commercial operation. Commercial lawyers help with:

• Legal Planning: Tailoring a legal framework that aligns with your business goals.
• Contract Development: Crafting agreements that protect your interests.
• Risk Management: Identifying potential legal risks and implementing strategies to mitigate them.

Choosing Anumis Legal means partnering with a team that comprehends the complexities of business law and values the distinct nature of your business. We provide personalised legal solutions that are as unique as your business.
