Texas Business Formation FAQs

What Types of Business Entities Exist in Texas? 

Are you in the process of formally setting up your business? If so, it is important to have a general understanding of the types of business entities that exist. That way, you can better determine which option might best suit your business’s needs. 

General Partnerships

Corporations

Limited Liability Companies

Can I file formation documents by myself?

Yes. You can visit the Corporations Section of the Texas Secretary of State to learn more. And the Internet is littered with “robots” capable of filing documents on your behalf, but these services are not a substitute for legal counsel provided by an experienced attorney. Filing formation documents with the state of Texas is merely the first step in establishing a legal entity that will meet your needs and the provide robust liability protection you probably desire. That’s why our business formation packages include a myriad of additional documents — they’re designed to “cover all your bases” and build a foundation for success.

Which type of entity is right for me?

Who knows?! A majority of clients opt to form limited liability companies because of their unique combination of liability protection and ease of operation. But each circumstance is different.

Some of the key factors that you may take into consideration when determining which entity to select include: 

  • Tax treatment, 
  • Personal liability protection, 
  • Ease of formation and continued maintenance, 
  • Separation of ownership and management, and
  • Ability to raise capital.

To discuss your particular situation, give us a call.

How long does the formation process take?

It varies. We expedite all filings (and cover the associated expediting fees) to speed things along. And we file all documents electronically, if possible. This means that we usually receive answers from the Secretary of State within two business days. Depending on attorney workload it may be possible to form your business within just a few days.

Subsequently we will apply for an Employer ID Number from the IRS on your behalf and draft your company’s internal operating documents. These additional steps can take anywhere from 2-5 business days to complete, depending on a variety of factors, including how quickly the client responds to inquiries.
