Starting A Business? Protect Personal Assets Through Business Entity Formation

Free registration required

Executive Summary

The business person who is a sole proprietor should be aware that his/her liability is virtually unlimited. When you do not have the protection of an entity under which your business operates, it is your personal assets that are at risk. Therefore, if a party were to sue you, your personal assets would be exposed. Many states, such as Texas, offer homestead protection so that creditors cannot foreclose on an individual's home, but such laws vary from state to state.
