Structuring Your Business

The Oregon Secretary of State publishes the informative booklet, "Oregon Start a Business Guide" that contains easy-to-understand information on the different business structures and potential tax and liability implications of each, including:

  • Sole proprietor
  • General partnership
  • Limited liability company
  • Business corporation
  • Non-profit corporation

For guidance in choosing the best structure for your organization, consult your attorney, your CPA, or contact the local Small Business Development Center.
