As a small business owner you have more important things to do than to keep your own books. We take care of your books for you, so you can get back to the job of running your business and generating profits.

Choose a Business Structure


The first step in starting a business is to decide on a basic legal structure. This step is important because financial and legal implications vary depending on legal structure. Once you settle on a legal structure, you will need to properly record the business name with the state and/or county.

In the State of California, there are several legal options for setting up your business structure.

Given the legal implications when choosing your business structure, our accountants advice new business owners about all the legal requirements and make sure the legal requirements are met before choosing a business structure. The optional legal business structures in the State of Texas are as follows:

Legal Business Structures in the State of California

  • Sole Proprietorship
  • General Partnership
  • Limited Partnership
  • Registered Limited Liability Partnership
  • Limited Liability Company
  • Corporation

Our accountants work with each client to understand their new business venture and what the client’s goals and needs for the new business. We take the time to go over the client’s plan for the business and ask questions, which helps our tax consultants advice the client on the most appropriate legal structure that’s best for the business in term of taxes and liability protection.


We work with clients all over the San Francisco Bay Area and have offices in Palo Alto, Mountain View, Sunnyvale and Fremont / Newark. We are one of the top accounting firms in California dedicated towards small business success.
