Business structure

When you start out we will discuss the most appropriate structure that will achieve your goals.
Business structures include:

  • Sole trader
  • Partnership
  • Limited partnership or company (including the various company options)
  • Trusts

Each has advantages and disadvantages for your business as well as tax implications.
Once an appropriate structure is determined, we will complete any registration procedures with Companies Office and the Inland Revenue Department. As your business grows or changes we can advise you if the structure should change.
