We’ll guide you through the process and help select the best business structure based on your characteristics, service options, products, and liability protection.


A nonprofit organization is supported by donations instead of selling products and services for profit. Typically, not-for-profit foundations are created to advance social causes and are exempt from paying taxes. Religious organizations and animal rescue shelters are examples of nonprofit organizations.

Sole Proprietor & Partnership

Sole proprietors and partnerships are common business models for Pittsburgh small business operators. It’s less expensive to set up and register but offers no financial protection and no tax benefits. Unfortunately, self-employed individuals are not eligible for unemployment compensation when their business is slow. On the upside, the owner or principal partners do not have to share business profits with employees but are solely responsible for taxes, debt, and personally liable if the business gets sued.

Fictitious Business Name Declaration

Self-employed individuals and partnerships may be required to file a fictitious business name or DBA to operate legally in Pennsylvania. DBA is an acronym for “doing business as”. A DBA, filed with the state department it’s not a business structure and does not offer any legal protection for your personal assets.


A limited liability company (LLC) offers the simplicity of a general partnership or sole proprietorship but also provides asset protection and additional tax benefits. As self-employed or partnerships get bigger it’s common to restructure into an (LLC) limited liability company.


Most of our small to midsize clients operate as corporations. Managing the business is a collective effort by shareholders. There are several formalities and regulations to govern the business properly, but corporations offer better tax benefits, more liability protection, and tend to be attractive for shareholders and investors.
