  • Do you know how to choose your business model? | Alberta Medical Association
    doctors buy into a practice and as such the type of business organization is already dictated by the current owners But regardless of whether you start out on your own or buy into an existing practice it is good to know the basics Sole practitioner This is the purest and most straightforward business organization As a sole practitioner you and you alone control the destiny of your business This means that all contracts are entered into in your name and that you are personally liable for debts incurred by the business In a nutshell you are the business and the buck stops with you The main benefit of carrying on business as a sole practitioner is that the start up costs are minimal Since you are the business you pay the usual personal tax rate so your losses from any given year can be carried forwarded to subsequent years The disadvantage of this model is that you are personally liable for all debts incurred by the business and in addition you might be paying too much tax under the current personal tax rate depending on how much you earn from your practice Partnership and limited liability partnership There are essentially two types of partnerships Ordinary partnership Limited liability partnership LLP As the name suggests a partnership is the relationship that subsists between persons carrying on a business in common with a view to profit In Alberta the Partnership Act sets out the legal framework for this business organization The term joint and several liability is the defining feature of this business vehicle Essentially this arrangement is akin to a marriage whereby you are bound by the acts or omissions of your partner s Just like a marriage it is important that you know and trust your partner s because each and every partner has the power and authority to bind the other partners Partnerships are governed by arrangements made between the individuals therefore the terms and conditions should be agreed to prior to entering into a partnership Some basic questions which should be addressed are How to share the profit and loss of the business How to resolve disagreements between the partners What happens when a partner leaves or dies It is always preferable for partners to resolve their issues without the involvement of the courts therefore it is highly advisable for the parties to draft a partnership agreement so that the parties know exactly what will happen in case certain issues or disagreements arise In an ordinary partnership each and every partner is liable for the acts of the other partners Most professionals doctor lawyers dentists however operate their business as an LLP because this provides a layer of protection In an LLP partners are not liable for the acts of their fellow partners unless they were involved in the negligent act themselves Besides this very important element in all other ways an LLP functions the same as an ordinary partnership Professional Corporation PC A corporation is a legal
