Entity Structure consultation is critical to a number of desired outcomes for a new or expanding venture. Capital acquisition, member/shareholder loans and draws, short or long-term profitability projections are a few of the issues that are considered in this process. SBS can implement the formation of recommended entities or elections.

Business Agreements are recommended by SBS and finalized as a written document. Contractor agreements, buy-sell agreements and member or shareholder agreements are important operating processes that can make a difference. Meetings with all parties to initiate the process and review and explain agreements are part of this consultation engagement.

Financial Projections are needed for loan packages, business plans and business expansion. Cash-flow projections are useful to business owners for determining prioritization of operating and debt expense, and to identify business financial cycles.
