Business Organisation

The major factors affecting how a business is organized, as stated by the British Business Angels Association (BBAA) are usually:

The size and scope of the business, and its anticipated management and ownership. Generally a smaller business is more flexible, while larger businesses, or those with wider ownership or more formal structures, will usually tend to be organized as partnerships or (more commonly) corporations. In addition a business that wishes to raise money on a stock market or to be owned by a wide range of people will often be required to adopt a specific legal form to do so.

The sector and country from Trade Associations and Regulatory Bodies. Private profit making businesses are different from government owned bodies. In some countries, certain businesses are legally obliged to be organized in certain ways.

Limited liability. Corporations, limited liability partnerships and other specific types of business organizations protect their owners or shareholders from business failure by doing business under a separate legal entity with certain legal protections. In contrast, unincorporated businesses or persons working on their own are usually not so protected.

Tax advantages. Different structures are treated differently in tax law, and may have advantages for this reason.

Disclosure and compliance requirements. Different business structures may be required to make more or less information public (or reported to relevant authorities), and may be bound to comply with different rules and regulations. UK Business Forums
