Business Organizations for Paralegals by Deborah E. Bouchoux offers comprehensive overview of business organizations, presented in a student-friendly format
Business Organizations for Paralegals covers of all the various types of business organizations and provides a basic and thorough understanding without overwhelming students. Each business entity is discussed using a logical “life cycle” approach: from its formation, to its advantages and disadvantages, to its operation, to its dissolution, and to its tax consequences. The text begins with an introduction to the various business entities and then progresses from the simplest, the sole proprietorship, through partnerships, to the most complex, the business corporation. The newest forms of business entities, the limited liability partnership and limited liability company, are also discussed. The text concludes with “other” forms of corporations, such as nonprofit and professional corporations.
The text combines in-depth substantive coverage of topics with practical information, including checklists. Throughout, helpful pedagogy reinforces the material, including web resources, key terms, practice tips, and exercises.
