GEORGIA INVESTMENT CLUB LLC Return to Menu

Have you thought about making money but weren't sure how to do it? The beauty of an Investment Club is that everyday people can combine their resources to make money in an effective, low cost way. An Investment Club is a group of people who pool their money to make investments. Each member actively participates in investment decisions. After the members study different investments, the group decides to buy or sell based on a majority vote of the members. Club meetings focus on investment education and each member actively participates in investment decisions.

What's the best business entity for an Investment Club? Probably the Limited Liability Company. The Limited Liability Company ("LLC") is a hybrid entity that is very flexible and, depending on how many owners (known as "Members"), should be deemed as a partnership (by default) for tax purposes if it has multiple Members, or as a corporation by election if it has only one member, while providing limited liability protection for all of its Members.

For federal tax purposes, an LLC, like a partnership or sole proprietorship, is a pass-through entity; thus, its income and losses are taxed only at the member level. However, all members of an LLC, like the shareholders of an S corporation, have limited liability for the debts and claims against the LLC. No member will be burdened with the personal liability.

An Investment Club LLC can have as few as one Member to start with or as many as 100, but no more than 100 Members. The Members of the LLC become owners of the Company by putting capital (making a "Capital Contribution") into the Company in exchange for Ownership Units. Ownership Units will entitle a Member to an allocation of profits and losses of the Company related to investments, but the Club itself has no profit and the Members are assessed operating expenses. Initially Ownership Units are $25 per Ownership Unit with a limit of 1 Ownership Unit per Member. For example, one founding Member may be issued an Ownership Unit and thus be the sole owner with a 100% Membership interest. Later, 3 additional Members may join the Investment Club LLC so that each has 1 Ownership Unit and each has a 25% Membership interest in the Investment Club LLC. If the Investment Club LLC expands to 100 Members, each would have a 1% Membership interest. Members may wish to deposit into their investment accounts initially upon formation or at a later date. Such contribution sums may be $0 up to an unlimited amount.

The Investment Club LLC is structured to admit Members, either individuals or business entities, who will act as day-to-day managers ("Managers") in addition to capital-contributing members ("Members"), but active participation in investment proposals and decisions is required so that the Units are not deemed securities for U.S. Government purposes. Committees of members can research and propose specific investments such as stock, bonds, art, real estate, gold coins, or any other investment vehicle approved by the Members. You are in control of your investment destiny!

Initially an Investment Club LLC may need a cash infusion for operational expenses. Additionally, the Investment Club LLC may require a continuing advance of funds for some time. How can the Investment Club LLC get the money? After the initial purchase of its Units, Members of the Investment Club LLC may loan money to the Investment Club LLC. Lending money to the Investment Club LLC is the preferred method to advance money, because the lender is seen as a creditor of the Investment Club LLC. This is accomplished with a Lender's Agreement and a Promissory Note.

In order to process your Investment Club LLC, you will need an Operating Agreement prepared by our Firm or, if you already have a an Operating Agreement, you will need to furnish our Firm an opinion letter from an attorney at law representing the proposed Investment Club LLC stating the attorney has reviewed the Operating Agreement and such Agreement is fully compliant with all applicable law. If you allow Spiegel & Utrera, P.A., to prepare your Investment Club LLC Operating Agreement, the Agreement is only $499.95 if prepared in conjunction with the formation of your Investment Club LLC.

The cost of the Spiegel & Utrera Investment Club LLC is just $199.95 for up to 4 members, additional members are $50 each, if ordered at the time of forming your LLC. Let us form your Investment Club Limited Liability Company! Includes state filing fees, attorney's fee, corporate minutes and resolutions, corporate seal and book, corporate by laws, stock certificate, and preliminary name search. The works!

How To Build Your Investment Club Return to Menu

Believe it or not, starting a business is more than just complying with regulations, at some point you have to go find customers! Building your business often gets lost when you are confronted with all of the other matters which must be taken care of. This should not be the case. Without customers you will not have a business for long! Two powerful business builders worthy of your consideration are below.

Investment Club LLC Operating Agreement - Avoid Member Disputes with a Comprehensive Agreement ▲
The way the Investment Club LLC will be run is described in an Operating Agreement specially-tailored for the Investment Club. In order to process your Investment Club LLC, you will need an Operating Agreement prepared by our Firm or, if you already have a an Operating Agreement, you will need to furnish our Firm an opinion letter from an attorney at law representing the proposed Investment Club LLC stating the attorney has reviewed the Operating Agreement and such Agreement is fully compliant with all applicable law.

The Operating Agreement defines the duties and responsibilities of the Members to each other and to the Investment Club LLC. The Operating Agreement should:

An Investment Club LLC can have as few as one Member to start with or as many as 100, but no more than 100 Members. The Members of the LLC become owners of the Company by putting capital (making a "Capital Contribution") into the Company in exchange for Ownership Units. Ownership Units will entitle a Member to an allocation of profits and losses of the Company related to investments, but the Club itself has no profit and the Members are assessed operating expenses. Initially Ownership Units are $25 per Ownership Unit with a limit of 1 Ownership Unit per Member. For example, one founding Member may be issued an Ownership Unit and thus be the sole owner with a 100% Membership interest. Later, 3 additional Members may join the Investment Club LLC so that each has 1 Ownership Unit and each has a 25% Membership interest in the Investment Club LLC. If the Investment Club LLC expands to 100 Members, each would have a 10% Membership interest.

The Investment Club LLC Operating Agreement is very thorough and anticipates common Investment Club problems so that the proper course of action is defined ahead of time rather than leaving Members "flying by the seat of their pants", so to speak. This Agreement is customized specifically for your Investment Club LLC. Normally, the fee to prepare such a comprehensive agreement of this nature would be $2,500 or more. In order to process your Investment Club LLC, you will need an Operating Agreement prepared by our Firm or, if you already have an Operating Agreement, you will need to furnish our Firm an opinion letter from an attorney at law representing the proposed Investment Club LLC stating attorney at law has reviewed the Operating Agreement and such Agreement is fully compliant with applicable law. Your cost is only $499.95 if prepared in conjunction with the formation of your Investment Club LLC.

Application for Membership in Investment Club ▲
The membership process in the Investment Club LLC begins by the prospective member completing an Application for Membership in the Investment Club LLC. The Application for Membership in the Investment Club is a comprehensive document which allows the club to gather information about the potential member. It specifically deals with investment criteria of the Member and account information. It includes the complete requirements of the USA Patriot Act of 2001 which requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify and record information that identifies each person or entity that opens a Membership Account. The Application provides for the physical address, accumulation of dividends, investment intentions over the next 12 months, reinvestment of dividends, payment of dividends, provides for a systematic investment scheme with appropriate bank information and optional ACF payments and the electronic delivery of account statements and other information provided by the Investment Club along with appropriate signatures and certifications by the Member as to the truth and accuracy of any information provided. The Application is designed in such a way that you may use it over and over again with new members. Your cost for the Application for Membership in Investment Club is $150 if prepared in conjunction with the formation of your Investment Club LLC.

Investment Club Membership Subscription Agreement ▲
The Investment Club Membership Subscription Agreement provides a frame work for the entrance of the member into the Investment Club LLC. The new member gives certain warranties and assurances designed to protect the investment club by complying with Federal and State laws governing memberships in investment clubs. It prevents a member from disclosing the investment club’s investments to any individual or entity that may be competing against the investment club and requires the member to maintain the confidentiality of all investment club records, prevents the member from impairing the good will of the investment club and provides for the acquiescence of the member as to the indemnification of the investment committee, officers and directors of the Investment Club. The Investment Club Membership Subscription Agreement will also indicate what investments in the Investment Club are prohibited. The Investment Club Membership Subscription Agreement is an important legal document that is the actual gateway for membership into the Investment Club LLC. No member can join the Investment Club LLC without having first executed an Investment Club Membership Subscription Agreement. More likely than not, you will be able to use the same Membership Subscription Agreement over and over again as additional members join the Investment Club LLC. Your cost is only $150 if prepared in conjunction with the formation of the Investment Club LLC.

Investment Club LLC Management Agreement - Providing Maximum Protection for Your LLC ▲
Every LLC should enter into a written Management Agreement between the LLC and its Manager(s). The Management Agreement should be drafted in such a way so that it conforms with the provisions of the LLC Operating Agreement and, in addition thereto, it will:

The cost of the Management Agreement is just $150, if ordered at the time of forming your LLC.

Memorandum of Operating Agreement
A Memorandum of Operating Agreement is designed to obtain maximum anonymity when disclosing the existence of an Operating Agreement to a third party. The Memorandum of Operating Agreement will include the name of the LLC, its principal location, its mailing address, its principal purpose, the Operating Manager along with specimen signature, any Vice Operating Manager(s) with specimen signature, the powers of the Operating Manager, election and tenure of Managers and Officers, if any, the names of the Members and Officers along with specimen signature and bank disbursement authorizations. The Memorandum of Operating Agreement is very thorough and anticipates common situations that may require the Memorandum of an Operating Agreement. However, your specific situation may call for a customization of the Memorandum of Operating Agreement, regardless, the price is the same. A draft of the Memorandum of Operating Agreement will be prepared as part of our service so you may review the Memorandum of Operating Agreement and make any changes and discuss same with one of our attorneys. Normally, the fee to prepare such a comprehensive Memorandum of Operating Agreement of this nature would exceed $800. However, your cost is only $99.95 for a Single Member LLC and $167.95 for up to 4 members of a Multi-Member LLC, additional members are $10 each, provided the Memorandum of Operating Agreement is prepared in conjunction with the formation of the LLC and the drafting of the Operating Agreement for the LLC.

Choosing a Name for Your Limited Liability Company

Choosing a name for your Limited Liability Company should be a well thought our process. Generally, a Limited Liability Company name may be adopted if there is not the same as or too similar to an existing name on the state Limited Liability Company records.

When determining name availability, Spiegel & Utrera, P.A. checks names only against names of limited liability companies registered in the state you are attempting to form your Limited Liability Company (e.g., a proposed limited liability company name is checked for availability only against other like limited liability company names) and only with the state agency responsible for limited liability company formations.

Names are not checked against state or federal trademark or service mark registrations nor against state or local fictitious, assumed or alternate business name registrations.
Bank accounts, uniforms, menus, vehicle signage and other business signage, a website, business cards, stationery, etc. should not be ordered and no financial commitments should be made until you know the name is available from the State and Federal, State and Common Law Trademark searches you have completed.

How To Save Money On Taxes Return to Menu

One of the most misunderstood and least used benefits to new entrepreneurs are the tax savings offered to them. Although there are many ways that you can save money on taxes, you must be in compliance with all regulations and laws; otherwise you may find yourself losing your business instead of saving money. Below are some of the ways that you can save money on Taxes:

Sub-Chapter "S" Tax Status  taxalert - The Biggest Tax Loophole Available to New Entrepreneurs  ▲
Since the LLC has more flexibility in the manner it can be taxed, it is strongly recommended that the LLC have at least two or more owners (members) at all times. The LLC may be taxed as a sole proprietor, a partnership, a disregarded entity, a regular corporation, or a Sub-S Corporation. However, when you have a single member LLC, if you do not elect to be specifically taxed as a corporation, the IRS taxes you automatically as a sole proprietor. This option is not in your best interest, as you will have to file Schedule C to your personal IRS Form 1040 tax return which will automatically create a higher chance of being audited by the IRS and you will not have the opportunity to take as many tax deductions as an LLC taxed as a corporation.

US Citizen or Permanent Resident
If you are a single member LLC, and the single member is an individual who is a citizen or permanent resident of the United States of America, or a Sub-S Corporation, Spiegel & Utrera, P.A. can prepare the necessary documentation for your LLC to elect to be taxed as a Corporation. We will also prepare the necessary documentation for your LLC to be taxed as a S Corporation, in order to receive the maximum tax benefits available to you. The fee for our office to prepare all your documentation is $125.

Non US Citizen or Permanent Resident
If you are a single member LLC and the single member is an individual who is not a citizen or permanent resident of the United States of America, nor a Sub-S Corporation, our office can prepare the necessary documentation for your LLC to elect to be taxed as a Corporation. The fee for our office to prepare all your documentation is $50. If you wish to be taxed as a partnership, then we recommend that you consider adding another member, it could be a parent, a sibling, a child, or another corporation. The other member could have a very small percentage of ownership interest in the LLC and you could limit the second owner's ability to vote, it is therefore also important to prepare and enter into an Operating Agreement between the members and LLC to clearly state all the terms and conditions.

IRS Section 1244 LLC Membership Intereststaxtip - Tax Savings for Nearly Every LLC Taxed as a Corporation ▲
This is another powerful tax provision which can be used by almost all LLC's taxed as a corporation, BUT, may only be accomplished with the original issuance of ownership interests in the LLC. This special provision of the Internal Revenue Code allows you to deduct as an ordinary loss, rather than as a capital loss, a loss on the sale, trade or worthlessness of the ownership interests in your LLC taxed as a corporation. The amount you can deduct as ordinary loss is up to $50,000 per year for a single person or $100,000 per year, if filing a joint return with your spouse. Generally, without 1244 Membership Interests, your loss would be limited to $3,000 for a single person per year or $6,000 per year, if filing a joint return with your spouse. An LLC taxed as a corporation that issues 1244 membership interests and elects to be an S corporation gives its members the best of both possible worlds from a tax stand point. The issuance of 1244 membership interests costs only an additional $50 when ordered with the formation of your LLC and comes with all the necessary documents, including corporate resolutions, 1244 plan and special membership certificates.

Tax Saving Lease Agreements taxtip  Return to Menu

Home Office Lease - Turn your home office into a Tax Deduction  ▲
Agreement detailing the leasing of office space by a homeowner or tenant with a LLC for use as the LLC's principal place of business. The typical tax savings under this agreement can exceed $1,200 per year. The Home Office Lease is only $150 when ordered with your LLC, and as an added bonus to our clients, we draft the Lease in such a manner that it is automatically renewable from year to year at no additional charge. We do not recommend a home office lease for a single owner corporation or single owner limited liability company or a where husband and wife file a joint tax return and are the only owners of the corporation or limited liability company.

Office Equipment Lease – More Tax Savings  ▲
A lease which details the leasing of office equipment by a business. Once again, by leasing equipment to the LLC, you create a legitimate business expense for the LLC and a Tax Deduction. Typically, the tax savings under this type of arrangement can exceed $1,000 per tax year. As an added bonus to our clients, we draft the lease in such a manner that it's automatically renewable from year to year without additional charge. The cost for an Office Equipment Lease is only $150, when ordered with the formation of your LLC. We do not recommend an office equipment lease for a single owner corporation or single owner limited liability company or a where husband and wife file a joint tax return and are the only owners of the corporation or limited liability company.

Asset Protection / How to Protect Your Business  Return to Menu

As a new entrepreneur, you are going to invest a lot of time and money into your business. It is imperative that you protect yourself and your business from anything that could go wrong. One of the keys to being a successful entrepreneur is proactively planning for the worst situation, not reacting to the situation after it has happened. Below are items imperative for the protection of you and your business.

Indemnification Agreement and Covenant Not to Sue – Don’t Take Chances: Protect Yourself from Personal Liability  ▲
We strongly recommend that you include special provisions in your Articles of Organization and additional agreements which trigger this important protection requiring the LLC to indemnify and hold harmless its Managers and Members from any actions they take on behalf of the LLC. If a Manager or Member is ever sued for actions taken on behalf of the LLC, these provisions require that the LLC be held responsible, as agreed upon by the Managers and Members and the LLC. These important provisions and agreements cost only an additional $75 if ordered at the time of formation of your LLC.

Members Restrictive Agreement for an Investment Club Limited Liability Company – Avoid Unwanted Transfer of Membership  ▲
If you have a Investment Club LLC it is strongly recommended you enter into a Member Restrictive Agreement. This agreement is entered into by the Members of the Investment Club and the LLC to enumerate and describe the rights and obligations of the Members to each other and to the Investment Club LLC. More particularly, it affords a right of first refusal where in the event a Member wants to transfer their Membership interest it requires approval and/or a buyout by the other Members. Your cost is only $150 if prepared in conjunction with the formation of your Investment Club LLC.

Member Divorce Protection Provisions in the Members Restrictive Agreement for a Limited Liability Company - Avoid the Unintended Spouse Member ▲
Unfortunately, many eager entrepreneurs anticipate a successful business venture but never contemplate the "down side." What happens if a member gets divorced? Will the membership interest remain with the member or get awarded to the spouse as part of the divorce settlement? What happens if member tries to convey or assign their membership interest to a spouse or former spouse to meet their obligations? A carefully drafted provision in the members restrictive agreement should afford a right of first refusal when a Member wants to transfer their membership interest by requiring a buyout of the membership interest by the other Members. Such a provision will protect the current members from potential ownership by divorced spouses or other possible sources of ownership conflict. For example, assume a company set up by husband John Smith, wife Pocahontas Smith, and son Al Smith. All are Members, and son Al is married to Patti Smith. What happens if Al and Patti Smith file for a divorce? Provisions in the Members Restrictive Agreement require that in the event of the filing of a divorce involving a Member of the company, a notice is sent to the other Members offering them a right of first refusal, which allow them to purchase Al Smith’s membership interest to avoid having Patti Smith as a member, especially after a nasty divorce. Furthermore, even if none of the Members want to buy the membership interest at issue, any transfer of membership interest would require unanimous consent of the other Members. Let us draft these special provisions to protect your company from divorce for an extra $75 when ordered with the Members Restrictive Agreement at the time of formation or $150 thereafter.

Avoid Probate – Maintain Control, Provide for Anonymity, Privacy and the Disposition of the Ownership of your Limited Liability Company Upon Your Death
Let Spiegel & Utrera, P.A. create an Inter Vivos Trust while your Limited Liability Company is in the process of being organized.

Start-Up Money for Your Business  Return to Menu

Finding the money necessary to start your business is challenging. Unfortunately many new entrepreneurs don’t know how to find this money. Even worse, when they find money they don’t know how to properly document the transaction. Don’t let this happen to you. Review the options below on How To properly secure and document money for your business.

Lender's Agreement & Promissory Notetaxtip - Properly Document Money Lent to the Business
Initially an Investment Club LLC may need a cash infusion for operational expenses. Additionally, the Investment Club LLC may require a continuing advance of funds for some time. How can the Investment Club LLC get the money? After the initial purchase of its membership interests, Members of the Investment Club LLC may loan money to the Investment Club LLC. Lending money to the Investment Club LLC is the preferred method to advance money, because the lender is seen as a creditor of the Investment Club LLC. This is accomplished with a Lender's Agreement and a Promissory Note. Both of these instruments together provide for an initial amount of a loan to the LLC and also provide for future advances of money the lender might make to the Investment Club LLC. In the event of failure of the investment club, the loan will be fully tax deductible by the lender as a bad debt. The fee for the Lender's Agreement and Promissory Note, if ordered at the time of the formation of your Investment Club LLC, is only $75.

Non-Voting Membership Interests - Control Your LLC While Raising Money  ▲
Allowing differences in voting rights is particularly advantageous to entrepreneurs who need to attract additional capital, but who also want to retain voting control over their LLC. For example, as a founding Member, you may want to have all of the voting membership interests so as to participate in the management of the LLC and control its operations, while transferring all of the non-voting membership interests to others so that they may share in the appreciation value and earnings of the LLC. Also, it’s likely you’ll want to protect yourself with a Members Restrictive Agreement. Seasoned business-owners will instinctually recognize the value of such an agreement. We’ll draft a special provision for your Articles of Organization and issue special certificates for non-voting membership interests. This item costs only an additional $74.95 if ordered at the time of formation.

Security Agreement for LLC - Protect Yourself if you Personally Funded the Loan for the Business
Once you have decided to use the Spiegel & Utrera, P.A. Lenders Agreement and Promissory Note, the next step is to collateralize the personal property assets of the company in favor of you, the lender with a Security Agreement. A Security Agreement is a contract between a lender and borrower. The Security Agreement gives the lender a security interest and the right to repossess personal property that a borrower has offered as collateral if a note is not paid per its agreed terms. This right is superior to all subsequent creditors provided the lien given by the Security Agreement is perfected. The Security Agreement available from Spiegel & Utrera, P.A. is complete and includes provisions relating to type of collateral being secured, address where collateral will be kept, executing further documents, events that shall constitute a default, assignment of secured collateral by holder, a listing of events that would constitute default by the borrower and the rights of the lender should the borrower default. Provided you have ordered the Spiegel & Utrera, P.A. Lenders Agreement and Promissory Note, the fee for the Security Agreement, if ordered at the time of forming your LLC, is an additional $75.

Perfecting the Lien Created by the Security Agreement - Uniform Commercial Code
Liens against personal property are perfected differently than liens on real property. The use of the phrase "personal property" does not mean property owned personally by the owner of a business. Instead, the term refers to all property used inside or outside of a business (with the exception of real property) including equipment, furniture, inventory, etc. To perfect a lien against personal property used in a business, strict adherence must be followed pursuant to the Uniform Commercial Code, documentation must be created, executed and filed with the appropriate government agencies. Once recorded, the Uniform Commercial Code makes a lien valid and serves as notice that the lien exists. Usually, the first recorded lien takes priority. Provided you have ordered the Spiegel & Utrera, P.A. Lenders Agreement and Promissory Note and the Spiegel & Utrera, P.A. Security Agreement, the documentation required to perfect the lien under the Uniform Commercial Code is $75, if ordered at the time of forming your LLC.

What You Need if You are Hiring Workers  Return to Menu

If you are planning to have anyone work for your company, whether as an employee or independent contractor, you must make sure that you are in compliance with all Federal and Georgia laws. Below are the most common items that you will require when hiring workers for your company.

Georgia Unemployment Tax Account Number – Required By Law if you are Hiring Employees
This number is used to withhold Georgia Unemployment Taxes from your LLC's payroll. If you have any employees on the payroll, including yourself, you will need this account number. We can initiate the paperwork for this account number for you and deliver it with the LLC. The cost at the time of forming your LLC is only $35.

Employment Agreement - Get the Most Out of Your Employees
If you are using employees in your business, it is important to have a written Employment Agreement to document the conditions of Employment. An Employment Agreement can be very advantageous for a business and should be required for all employees, whether new or existing. It creates a clear understanding of the arrangement between the employee and the LLC and provides protection for the business. The Employment Agreement also contains other important provisions: The Employment Agreement is prepared in such a way that you can use it over and over again to avoid additional costs in the future. By having this Employment Agreement, the LLC is given substantial clout in preventing an employee from joining a competitor, or competing against the LLC and disclosing business secrets to anyone. The Agreement may be re-used by the LLC as it hires additional employees, the cost of the Employment Agreement is just $150.

Employee Manual
When you hire employees in your business, it is important to have an Employee Manual to comprehensively spell out the policies of your business. Included within the Employee Manual are such topics as “Employment at Will”, Disability, Harassment and Discrimination, Standards of Conduct and the various rules relating thereto, Corrective Action and Termination, Wage and Salary Policies and Employee Communications. For a list of the Table of Contents of the Employee Manual, click here. The Employee Manual is intended to be a source document used at the business and would be updated by the business from time to time based upon its experiences with various situations. The preparation of the Employee Manual for your business costs only an additional $349.95 when ordered with the formation of your limited liability company and initially comes to you for review so you may have an opportunity to make any revisions before the Employee Manual is finalized by Spiegel & Utrera, P.A. and delivered to you electronically so you may print it as needed from time to time.

Employee Benefits and Policies
- Protect Yourself from Employee Disputes with a Comprehensive Policy
If you are using employees in your business, it is important to have written Benefits and Policies. Let us prepare your Employee Benefits and Policies. Unlike the Employment Agreement, the Employee Benefits and Policies creates an understanding of the entitlements of the employee relative to the policies of the business and provides protection for the business. The Employee Benefits and Policies will be customized for your business and are designed to cover: By having the customized Employee Benefits and Policies, the business has clearly communicated to its employees the Employee Benefits and Policies in effect at the business and how the Employee Benefits and Policies are to be followed so that there are no surprises. For example, relating to an employee who leaves the business without giving adequate notice who then would only be entitled to be paid at the minimum wage for any time due and owing and forfeiting any vacation days, sick days, commissions, incentive compensation and/or bonuses.

The Employee Benefits and Policies may be re-used by the business as it hires additional employees. The cost of the Employee Benefits and Policies is just $167.95 if ordered now with the formation of your company.

Georgia New Hire Reporting Form – Required by Law
All Georgia employers are required to report basic information about employees, who are newly hired, rehired, or who return to work after a separation of employment. You must submit a report for each newly hired employee within 10 days of their first day on the payroll. We can provide you with a package of 6 New Hire Registration Forms for $35. The forms are customized with your LLC’s information, and you may re-use them for each person you employ.

Independent Contractor Agreement taxtip bizalert - What Your Business Must Have if Using Independent Contractors
There are many reasons for using Independent Contractors, however, simply verbally stating that a worker is an Independent Contractor is not enough according to the IRS. Certain criteria must be met. The IRS considers 11 factors in three specified areas: Behavioral Control, Financial Control and Type of Relationship. So, before you engage the services of an Independent Contractor, it is essential that you document that relationship with a written Independent Contractor's Agreement, otherwise the IRS could hold your LLC and you personally liable for the Independent Contractor's Income Tax, Social Security, Medicare Tax and Federal Unemployment Tax, which should have been withheld. As a signatory on the check used to pay the Independent Contractor, you could be held personally liable for these taxes. The Independent Contractor's Agreement also contains other important provisions:

We can provide an Independent Contractor's Agreement that covers all the legal requirements and many business advantages for your LLC for only $150 if ordered at the time of formation of your LLC.

How To Build Credit and Credibility for Your Business  Return to Menu

As a new business two items vital to your survival are credit and credibility. Customers feel secure dealing with a credible business. Potential investors and other lenders are more comfortable providing capital to a business with good credit. But how do you build credit and credibility for a business? Even more importantly, how can you build credit for your business if your personal credit is not spotless? Two of the easiest ways are discussed below.

D & B Number - Start Building Your Business Credit Immediately ▲
According to Dun & Bradstreet, the D & B number is widely used by both commercial and federal entities and was adopted as the standard business identifier for federal electronic commerce as early as October 1994. The D & B number was also incorporated in the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) in April 1998 as the United States Federal Government’s contractor identification code for all procurement-related activities. The D & B number is also known as the D-U-N-S® number and remains with the corporation location to which is has been assigned even if it closes or goes out of business. With that in mind, it is important to have a physical location for your business when obtaining the D & B number. D & B also states that the D-U-N-S® number also “unlocks” a wealth of valued-added data associated with that entity, including the business name, physical and mailing addresses, trade styles (fictitious name, assumed name, alternate name or DBA), principal names, financial, payment experiences, industry classifications (SICs [Standard Industry Classification] and NAICS [North American Industry Classification System]), socio-economic status, government data and more. The D-U-N-S® number also links members of corporate family trees worldwide. If ordered at the time of forming your corporation, Spiegel & Utrera, P.A. will obtain your D & B number, also known as your D-U-N-S® number, for $50. If ordered later, the charge to obtain the D & B number, also known as your D-U-N-S® number, is $75.

Our staff has many years of experience representing Tenants. Having your lease reviewed BEFORE you sign on the dotted line can save you thousands of dollars.

In our review we address issues such as:

Business Purchase Review: Asset Purchase – Generally Liabilities are NOT Assumed ▲
When assets are acquired, the purchaser buys all or specified assets of the selling entity and may assume none, some, or all of the liabilities of the business. An asset purchase may be more attractive to you since you may be able to pick and choose the specific items desired and can attempt to avoid assuming debts and liabilities of the selling entity. An asset acquisition is also designed to reduce your exposure to possible unknown or contingent liabilities. When assets are acquired, appropriate documents must be prepared in order to effectuate the transfer of title to each particular asset which is being transferred. This can involve a great deal of paper work and may require approvals and consents from various other parties, depending on the entity which is being purchased. We recommend faxing any agreement BEFORE you sign to (800) 520-7800, at no obligation to you, and an attorney can advise you over the phone.

Franchise Agreement Review – Is That Franchise Too Good to be True? ▲
A franchise is a method of distributing goods and services by licensing a business idea or concept to another. The "franchisor" is the legal owner of the franchised business' concepts and ideas, including names and logos. The "franchisee" is the individual or entity that purchases the right to use these concepts and ideas from the Franchisor. Studies reveal that franchised businesses experience lower default rates than independent businesses and generally have a somewhat easier time securing financing because the Franchisor typically has an established trademark and goodwill, as well as marketplace experience. But is a franchise worth the cost and restrictions? Many new entrepreneurs incorrectly believe that purchasing a franchise will lead to immediate success and profits with little to no risk. This is rarely the case. When considering a franchise there are many aspects that you need to examine. One good indicator of the potential success of a franchise is to compare your start-up cost with the past advertising and promotional expenditures of the franchisor. For example, a fast food franchise that has a start-up cost of $50,000 where the franchisor has invested $500 million in advertising and promotion would probably be a better purchase than another fast food franchise that has a lower start-up cost but the franchisor has only invested $10 million in advertising and promotion. Likewise, remember that higher price does not necessarily mean less risk and lower price does not mean greater potential reward. You must review all materials and disclosures carefully and seek legal advice. Although franchises usually require up-front fees and are heavily regulated by Federal and state agencies because of their inherent risks, a franchisee operating under one trademark can achieve levels of brand awareness, market penetration and purchasing power that business people operating individually could not ordinarily achieve. Generally, a franchise agreement grants to the franchisee a limited license and right to use and operate a recognizable outlet within a defined territory by utilizing a pre-existing business system and proprietary marks. The franchise agreement allows the franchisor to carefully control the obligations and responsibilities of the franchisee. It is imperative to have the agreement reviewed by an attorney BEFORE you sign it. The attorneys of Spiegel and Utrera, P.A. have extensive experience in Franchise Agreements and will review your Franchise Agreement. Just fax your agreement to (800) 520-7800, at no obligation to you, and an attorney can advise you over the phone.

In our review we address issues such as:

A franchise is an excellent way to get started as a new entrepreneur, but it does not guarantee success. You must have a Franchise Agreement that works to your advantage. Let Spiegel and Utrera, P.A. review your agreement and get your franchise started on the path to success!
