For-Profit and Non-Profit Business Formation

When establishing a new business, it’s important to know your preferred structure. Whether a business is for-profit or non-profit will affect every aspect of formation. At NMS Certified Public Accountants, our knowledgeable Ohio CPAs will ensure that no matter your business type, it is set up in the best and most beneficial way possible.

For-Profit vs Non-Profit

Legal formation of a specific type of company can include plans to accommodate legal requirements, ownership levels, rights between owners, capital funding, and distributions, among other factors. Non-profit entities will be more mission-driven, with financial documentation focused on assets that can be used to further their goals. Accountability to funding sources is paramount for any non-profit organization.

On the other hand, for-profit companies will be concerned with building assets that can be distributed as earnings to shareholders. With proper guidance from the outset, and ample attention paid to accounting methods and overall structuring, your for-profit or non-profit company can be set up for success.
