Types of Business Structure

The Business Entity Comparison Table can show you a simple comparison, or you can find more detailed information from the US Small Business Administration (SBA). The Department of Revenue Services (DRS) has a document called “Getting Started in Business” for Connecticut that can help with your start-up process. Please look over this document if you have any trouble.

Getting Started in Business

The DRS cannot advise you on choosing a business entity. You have to decide which of these entities best suits your business objectives and needs. You can get help in making this decision from a tax practitioner, such as an accountant, enrolled agent, or attorney, or one of the resource organizations listed in Chapter 10 of the link above. A tax practitioner can also provide information about how to establish the business structure you choose.
