There are advantages and disadvantages to each entity and without proper understanding of what they are, individuals could make costly errors and forfeit crucial perks that would be in the businesses best interest. In the situation in New State, Alex, Bill, Carl, and Devon have inherited their father’s operating organic farm and seek advice, in regards to which form of business organization would best fit their particular criteria. They have emphasized their immediate concerns, wants and needs from a business standpoint, but also stress their strong faith to uphold and operate in accordance with the Christian worldview. Their criteria is as follows, (1) create an entity which averts formalities or complexities, (2) develop a structure allowing cousin Xavier to handle the day-to-day, (3) minimize taxes on the entity, (4) avoid any personal liability, (4) keep business in the family only, (5) remain in accordance with the Christian worldview, (which will be the final topic in this discussion). After reviewing all criteria, it will be advised that forming a limited liability company (LLC) and electing for an S corporation status would be of best interest for the family. Discussed below, is the strengths and weaknesses of each form of business organization as it applies to their unique situation, to help better understand why an LLC/S corporation, is the best form of

There seem to be three major ways to remove this liability, which include a C-Corp, S-Corp and LLC. For this situation, I would recommend an LLC for the business owner and will explain why it will benefit him in the issues of liability, continuity, income taxes, profit retention and control.
Betty Wilson’s venture of opening a Christian Coffee House in Belmont, NC, presents her with abundant opportunities in selecting a business form.

Even though their goal is to choose a business form with limited liability and lower their tax burdens, they will still be responsible to pay taxes and debts owed by the company. Proverbs 27:17 says “Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another” (ESV). Alex, Bill, Carl, and Devon will be called upon to sharpen one another to display Christ to others through sound business practices.

There are four primary forms of entities available to Penelope, Mark, and John. Notably, they include a limited liability company option, partnership, or a corporation (especially S-Corporation). The sole proprietorship option is not ideal in this case as it is run by an individual. In most cases, it is limited to sole benefits (Schwidetzky & Brown, 2015).
