Why Choose Us
- Limited Liability Companies (LLCs) are much easier to form and maintain than corporate entities, making them a great choice for single purpose projects such as individual films; however, many corporate-level investors prefer the security of a corporation and will only invest in corporations. Be sure you are clear about your goals before picking an entity.
- The California Franchise Tax Board charges an $800 minimum per year for businesses located in California; however, there are several exemptions available for companies that qualify.
