Re: Sole Proprietor or LLC

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

I've tried to shy away from moonlighting and side work from my regular 9 to 5.  The main reason being that a sole proprietorship has much less protection from damages.  As I have understood it, if you are a SP, all assets including your personal property are fair game.  An LLC provides some protection against that type o' stuff.

Good luck.  I'd be curious to hear others, and any info you may get about this.
