HIDALGO COUNTY HERALD FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 30, 2011 SBDC Sole proprietorship makes sense for startups By CANDICE LEE of Sommer, Udall, Sutin, Hardwick & Hyatt, RA. One of the first consider- ations for the owner of a new busi- ness is what form that business should take. The most common options are sole proprietorship, partnership (general and limited), corporation (C corporation and S corporation) and limited liability company. Most businesses begin as a sole proprietorship, which makes sense for the startup and new busi- ness owner. Many sole proprietorships consist of a single individual working at home, de- veloping a product in the garage or writing software code on the home computer. These businesses have few assets other than the equipment and tools used -- and usually owned -- by the indi- vidual. Any assets acquired by the sole proprietor are purchased in the owner's name, although some sole proprietors use a "doing busi- ness as" or "d/b/a" name follow- ing their own names. ' In a sole proprietorship, the business does not exist apart from its owner. All of the profits, losses and deductions for the business are reported on the owner's per- sonal tax return, and the owner of the business is personally liable for all of the business's debts, obligations and liabilities, re- gardless of whether the owner is using a trade name as a "d.b.a." No regulatory filings are required to establish or create a sole pro- prietorship, but entrepreneurs should check with local and state tax authorities to ensure the busi- ness is in compliance with local and state tax laws. For most business owners and entrepreneurs, the sole pro- prietorship will only suit the business and its goals for a lim- ited time. At some point, the busi- ness will expand and the owner will be looking for ways to limit his or her personal liability, bring in new partners and seek outside investment. At this point, the business owner needs to consider how -- and in what form -- to move forward. These are the kinds of questions legal counsel will ask a business owner who is trying to decide whether to be- come a partnership, corporation or LLC: What is the expected or planned growth of the business in the next year? The next three years? The next five years? Does the business plan to hire employees or consultants? Will the business pay the employ- ees or consultants in cash or in equity? What are the business's financing requirements in the next year? The next three years? The next five years? Where will the business have offices? Will they be in state, out of state or both ? What material contracts does the business anticipate en- tering into in the next year? The next three years? The next five years? The answers to these ques- tions will determine what entity is best for the sole proprietor to assume in order to build the busi- ness and to meet its evolving goals. Western New Mexico University's Small Business De- velopment Center offers assis- tance to entrepreneurs who are starting a business or wanting to expand an existing business.

The students were fascinated by the information he presented. They very much enjoyed the activity in which he had them participate, in which "A Visitor from Outer Space" takes over our freedom, and required them to choose only five of our ten rights from the Biil of Rights. This was an extremely thought provoking activity. The students, Mrs. Robinson, and Animas Schools thank Mr. Saucedo for taking his time to come and speak. Having a speaker for Constitution Day is sponsored yearly by New Mexico State Bar Foundation, Public and Legal Services Department. Work to begin on Little Walnut Picnic area Submitted by GILA NATIONAL FORESTI Silver City Reconstruction of the low water crossings in the popular Little Walnut Picnic Area on the Silver City Ranger District, Gila National Forest, is scheduled to begin October 2 through Octo- ber 31, 2011. During the recon- struction work, the picnic area will be temporarily closed with no vehicle access into the area. Location of the picnic area is six miles north of Silver City, NM, off Little Walnut Road on Forest Road (FR) 506. "As soon as reconstruction is completed and it's safe for the public, the picnic area will re- open for fall and winter. Tem- porary closure dates may also be adjusted as work progresses," says Ricky Sedillo, Recreation Specialist on the Silver City Ranger District. The temporary c}osure in- cludes three areas within Little Walnut; the two large group reservable areas known as "East" and "West" picnic grounds, and the individual (free) picnic sites on the north end of the picnic area. Reconstruction work in- Cludes two low-water crossings to help restore eroding crossings and eliminate a safety hazard for vehicles within the picnic area. Work will also include Ameri- cans with Disabilities Act (ADA) improvements, with Presentation to f, :us on Mexico and the border Continued from Page I .... 100 photographs and the other containing discussions of border issues written by six profession- als including Bowden.
