For more than 65 years, we at Whyte & Associates have evolved and grown right alongside our many entrepreneurial clients in Rancho Cucamonga. We are proud to have helped these clients get their businesses off on the right footing. However, there may come a time when you, as a sole proprietor, need and want to incorporate. Congratulations! Odds are your business has grown to the point where there are concerns about your taking on the additional liabilities or risks that come with owning and running an evolving organization. So, the mere fact that you are pursuing the process of incorporation, is a reflection of how well your team is performing.
As an aspiring entrepreneur, if you do not incorporate, your business will by default be characterized as a “sole proprietorship.” Simply, individuals (sole proprietors) run these unincorporated operations on their own. There is no special paperwork, fees, or dues associated with this automatic process. Now, if you choose to incorporate, there is a legal process that our team of professionals can lead you through.

In partnership with you, we minimize the time and headaches related to the incorporation process. In turn, there really is no excuse to go for it if you are at that stage in the business that necessitates incorporation, or any number of other situations may dictate the need to transition from a sole proprietorship to a C Corp, S Corp or other arrangement.
There are advantages and disadvantages of different types of incorporations, which we are happy to walk you through during a consultation.

So, it is crucial that we meet with you to discuss your situation, needs, and goals. We have the solid experience and focused knowledge to help you make an informed decision about the next steps in your firm’s “life.”
