Choosing a Business Entity
Many contractors are particularly confused when it comes to making a decision about what kind of business entity to choose (if any) for their business. Massachusetts offers a number of different options for contractors, and they would be well-advised to seek out the advice of an attorney and an accountant when starting out. A friend and colleague, JT Mann has set up a blog to address just this issue. You can view his blog at http://brazilianbusiness.typepad.com
In addition to offering advice to businesses, he focuses on the specific business concerns of Brazilians in the United States and Brazilian companies doing business in the U.S. and vice-versa.
As JT says, spending some money up front to set up your business properly can prevent a number of problems in the future.
