How Your Business Structure Affects Financing

Your company’s type of structure plays a substantial role in your financing options. Investors will consider your company’s tax penalties and liability if litigation or a loan default should occur. In a sole proprietorship, there is very little separation between personal and business assets. The owner is liable, and their personal assets are at stake.

Corporations and LLCs offer much better protection. When it comes to financing, the difference between a C-corp and an S corp is that C-corps do not have restrictions around the number of shareholders while S corps are limited to 100. If you are considering an S corp vs an LLC, the LLC entity offers a greater likelihood of obtaining a bank loan. Investors find LLCs attractive because they usually have more liquid assets plus an established history.
