Working With Businesses From The Ground Up

Entrepreneurs and individuals starting a business have long been considered the backbone of the U.S. economy. Before you can start analyzing profit and loss statements, simple considerations need to be addressed: Who will manage and own the business? What is going to be the most efficient tax structure?

With 30 years of combined experience in state and federal tax law as well as knowledge to guide clients through the issues of business entity selection and formation, the attorneys at The Peck Group, LC, are prepared to answer your questions and set you on the right path. With an office in Atlanta, we serve clients throughout Georgia and the Southeast.

Taking Full Account Of All Business And Tax Considerations

Efficient business structures are tailored to the type of business that will be performed. While it may seem simple to go to the secretary of state and obtain basic formation documents, this is only a small percentage of what successful business owners need to do.

At our firm, we address key questions, namely:

  • What kind of entity works best for your business?
  • Do you have an operating agreement or bylaws to reference?
  • Do you have documentation that can pass due diligence and underwriting?
  • Will it pass examination by the IRS?
  • Who will manage the entity?
  • How are ties broken when owners are at odds?
  • What is the best way to dissolve an entity if things do not work out?
  • How should income and profits and losses be allocated?

We help you consider all important documentation, from partnership agreements to employee contracts.

Starting a business without a plan in mind and without considering its conclusion can be shortsighted. We can help you address these considerations in the beginning, so that you are not surprised. Unintended consequences can occur when an unprepared business owner operates without a well-designed plan. We believe it is better to plan than to be reactionary. We will spend the time to draft a complete and comprehensive plan from a business and tax perspective.
