||088730821X Amazon.com More than two decades ago, when former Wall Street portfolio analyst Judith H. McQuown first sat down to write the inaugural edition of Inc. Yourself, the incorporation of a small company was a fairly simple procedure undertaken by relatively few refugees from the then-burgeoning safe haven of big-time corporate America. But while the appeal and the underlying need for striking out on one's own have increased markedly in the interim, the continual passage of major tax-law changes has ensured that incorporation is no longer such an uncomplicated process. Accordingly, in this ninth edition of her bestselling primer, McQuown still outlines the core information necessary to turn any enterprise into a separate legal entity replete with all of the rights, privileges, and liabilities that such a move entails. But she also updates those suggestions for today's small businesses whenever appropriate, and bolsters them with important details on newly available options for pension plans, organizing the venture, and sheltering its income from taxation. --Howard Rothman--This text refers to the Hardcover edition. From Booklist Despite dozens of competitors and imitators, McQuown's Inc. Yourself has proved quite durable. First published in 1977, this guide to incorporation for the self-employed business owner or professional is now in its eighth edition. McQuown has continually kept up with changes in tax and business law, and her clear, basic explanations make this an easy book to understand and use. She contrasts the various legal forms businesses may take and thoroughly covers insurance and medical benefits. This latest edition includes a new chapter on preparing a business plan and one targeting minority business owners. Another added chapter discusses the "limited liability company," a new form of company about which information has heretofore been difficult to locate. Highly recommended.
