New Business Formation and Setup


Starting a new business can be overwhelming from all the paperwork, preparation of the business plan, and business entity decisions. W.J. Gordon & Associates is here to help in that process. We begin by understanding the direction the business will be taking and educate the client on the effects the new business will have on the owner(s). Our Cleveland firm assists in entity selection, filing paperwork on the federal and state levels, advising in an accounting and payroll system and many other value added services necessary to start a business.

Entity Selection
