"To LLC or Not to LLC (or Inc.)"
Publishing attorney Jonathan Kirsch will offer a checklist approach to the pros and cons of operating as a business entity, including the use of an LLC or a corporation. (Foundational/Practical)
About the Program
Should independent publishers and author-publishers operate their publishing businesses through a limited liability company or a corporation even though it represents an additional ongoing expense? Or is it better to save money by operating as a sole proprietor?
Publishing attorney Jonathan Kirsch will offer a checklist approach to the pros and cons of operating as a business entity, including the use of an LLC or a corporation:
- as a barrier to liability,
- as a way of enhancing the perceived stature and value of a publishing business,
- as a vehicle for the sale of the publishing business, and
- for tax, estate and succession planning.
