Choose the Appropriate Type of Company for Your Needs
There are many different types of companies, each with their own advantages and disadvantages. The type of company you choose should be based on your business needs.
Sole proprietorships are the simplest and most common type of business structure. They are owned and operated by one person, and have few formalities or regulations. LLCs (Limited Liability Companies) offer more protection for the owners than a sole proprietorship, but are more complex to set up and maintain. Corporations offer the most protection for the owners, but are also the most complex to set up and maintain.
The type of company you choose will have an impact on your taxes, liability, and ability to raise capital. Choose the structure that best meets your needs.
Choose Who Should be Incorporating the Company
There are a few key factors to consider when choosing who should be incorporating your startup company. First, you need to decide if you want to form a C-corporation or an S-corporation. C-corporations offer protection from liability and double taxation, while S-corporations offer pass-through taxation. If you’re not sure which one is right for you, consult with an accountant or business attorney.
Once you’ve decided on the type of corporation, you need to choose who will be the incorporator. The incorporator is the person who officially files the paperwork with the state to create the corporation. The incorporator can be any adult over the age of 18, and doesn’t have to be involved in the day-to-day operations of the company.
Finally, you need to choose a registered agent for your corporation. A registered agent is a person or business that agrees to accept legal documents on behalf of the corporation. The registered agent must have a physical address in the state where the corporation is incorporated, and must be available during normal business hours.
Select and Organize Payment Sources to Consider
There are a few things to consider when selecting and organizing payment sources for your startup company. Here are a few factors:
– The type of business you are running: What products or services do you offer? Are you selling physical goods, digital goods, or services?
– Your customer base: Who will be buying your products or services? Do you have a global customer base, or is your target market more localized?
– Your sales volume: How many sales do you anticipate making in a given period of time? This will help determine how much capacity you need from a payment processor.
– Your pricing structure: Do you charge per transaction, monthly, or annually? What currency will you be billing in?
Once you’ve considered these factors, you can start to narrow down which payment processors will work best for your business. Stripe Atlas supports businesses in over 130 countries and currencies, so Stripe is a good option for companies with a global customer base. We also support multiple pricing structures and can scale to handle high volumes of transactions.
Build your Contracts and Terms of Service
Assuming you’ve already read and understand the main blog article, registering your startup company with Stripe Atlas requires two key components: contracts and terms of service.
Building your contracts is relatively simple: you’ll need to decide what services you’re offering, set pricing, and put together any other relevant legal documents. Your terms of service should be clear and concise, laying out the rules and regulations for using your services.
It’s important to get these components right from the start, as they will be the foundation for your business relationship with Stripe Atlas. Taking the time to build strong contracts and terms of service will save you headaches down the line.
