How To Build Your Business Return to Menu

Believe it or not, starting a business is more than just complying with regulations, at some point you have to go find customers! Building your business often gets lost when you are confronted with all of the other matters which must be taken care of. This should not be the case. Without customers you will not have a business for long! Two powerful business builders worthy of your consideration are below.
Service Agreement - The Foundation for a Successful Service Business – You are LOSING $$$ without it!
You are LOSING MONEY if you do not have a Service Agreement. Without a service agreement you are watching dollars walk away every day. Obtaining a first time customer is very expensive. Yet so many entrepreneurs let that customer walk away after the initial sale. This is a sure fire way to make your business fail. Successful entrepreneurs know that the key to starting a thriving enterprise is repeat business. It is far too costly and time consuming to build your business on first time customers alone. You MUST turn these first time customers into repeat customers. A service agreement is a solid investment in the future of your business and is a fast, easy, and cost effective way to make your business succeed. A service agreement works as a tool not only to secure repeat customers but also to market your business. The Service Agreement is a customized written agreement entered into with its customers and is the bedrock foundation of many service businesses. Many franchises sold for tens of thousands of dollars are business formats revolving around a successful Service Agreement. The key with a Service Agreement is to make it work as a marketing tool offering the business services in the widest variety of formats to your customers. For example, a one-time use customer needs to be converted to a monthly, quarterly or annual type repeat customer. At Spiegel & Utrera we want to help you get, and keep, your customers while looking professional and at the same time maximizing each sale with a friendly service agreement. A Service Agreement starts at $367.95 up to $897.95 depending upon its complexity if ordered at the time of forming your corporation. We will prepare a draft of your Service Agreement and deliver the draft by fax or email to you for your review. Once you have had an opportunity to review the Service Agreement we will meet over the telephone to discuss the various aspects of the draft Service Agreement. Thereafter, Spiegel & Utrera will make changes to the Service Agreement to finalize it. Once the Service agreement has been finalized and delivered to you, you should take it to your printer to be printed and padded so it will always look professional and non-negotiable.

Below are some of the most common items that new businesses need in order to be compliant with the state of California and other services that you may find advantageous for your business.

Choosing a Name for Your Corporation

Choosing a name for your Corporation should be a well thought our process. Generally, a Corporation name may be adopted if there is not the same as or too similar to an existing name on the state Corporation records.

When determining name availability, Spiegel & Utrera, P.A. checks names only against names of corporations registered in the state you are attempting to form your Corporation (e.g., a proposed corporation name is checked for availability only against other like corporation names) and only with the state agency responsible for corporate formations.

Names are not checked against state or federal trademark or service mark registrations nor against state or local fictitious, assumed or alternate business name registrations.
Bank accounts, uniforms, menus, vehicle signage and other business signage, a website, business cards, stationery, etc. should not be ordered and no financial commitments should be made until you know the name is available from the State and Federal, State and Common Law Trademark searches you have completed.

Avoid the ramifications of selecting a corporate name that is already in use by another and possibly prevent:

Avoid the problem of having you and your Corporation accused of Trademark Infringement and the possible litigation stemming from State and/or Trademark Infringement by allowing Spiegel & Utrera, P.A. to do the appropriate state and federal trademark searches as follows:

Federal Trademark or Servicemark Search and Attorney Opinion
A search of the United States Government's records including Marks that have been registered and are currently pending registration and an opinion as to the results of the search. Up to 3 words - $275. More than 3 words would be $50 per additional word.

State Trademark or Servicemark Search and Attorney Opinion
The state search includes a thorough examination of Trademarks registered in a particular state and an opinion as to the results of the search. The price for a Trademark search is $99.95 per State for up to three words. More than 3 words would be $50 per additional word per state.

Common Law Trademark Search and Attorney Opinion
Search includes Marks that are in use but may not be registered with the United States Government or a State and an opinion as to the results of the search. The results of a Common Law Search can be very important because whoever uses a Mark first generally has a superior right to the name - $250.

Combo Search and Attorney Opinion

The Mark must only consist of up to three words - $524.95. You receive a savings of $100 by ordering these searches now. More than 3 words would be $50 per additional word per state. Additional states are $50 per state.

Name Reservation - Why?
A Corporation name may be adopted if the name is not the same as or too similar to an existing name on the State records or if the name is not misleading to the public.

When determining name availability, names are checked only against names of other Corporations registered in California.

To obtain a favorable Federal Income Tax exemption determination from the Internal Revenue Service, your corporation must go through a lengthy and often cumbersome Internal Revenue Service approval process, during which time you will have to provide the Internal Revenue Service with copies of your Corporate Records and information regarding your Corporation’s activities.

Although there are many ways that you can save money on taxes, you must be in compliance with all regulations and laws; otherwise you may find yourself losing your business instead of saving money. Below are some of the ways that you can save money on Taxes:
TAX SAVING LEASE AGREEMENTS Return to Menu

The typical tax savings under this agreement can exceed $1,200 – per year. The Home Office Lease is only $150 when ordered with your Corporation, and as an added bonus to our clients, we draft the Lease in such a manner that it is automatically renewable.

Motor Vehicle Lease
– Turn Your Personal Car into a Tax Deduction
If you use your vehicle for business purposes, it is usually much more advantageous to keep the vehicle in your name and lease the vehicle to the Corporation The typical tax savings under this type of arrangement ranges between $1,500 and $3,000 per tax year. We can prepare the lease for only $150 when ordered with your Corporation.

Effectively Controlling Your Business Return to Menu

Non-Voting Members
Depending on the level of participation of the organizers of the non-profit corporation, you may wish to have non-profit corporation members that participate but refrain from voting. We’ll draft a special provision for your Articles of Incorporation. This item costs only an additional $74.95 if ordered at the time of Incorporation.

Voting Trust – Keeping Control of Your Corporation when there are Multiple Shareholders
A voting trust is a device for combining the voting power of shareholders. It is not unlawful for shareholders to combine their voting stock for the election of directors so as to obtain or continue the control or management of a corporation. California Statutes limit the duration of voting trusts to a period of ten years. In order to avoid the invalidation of a voting trust, the applicable statutes should be strictly complied with. There are various situations in which a voting trust agreement may be used. It may be used when several shareholders wish to vote their respective stock as a unit. It also may be used for the special purpose of protecting corporate creditors. The general plan of a voting trust is controlled by the voting trust agreement; then the shareholders endorse their stock certificates to the voting trustee. The voting trustee surrenders these certificates to the corporation and the voting trustee receives in return new certificates issued in the name of the voting trustee, and the voting trustee votes the shares as principal, rather than as agent as in the case of proxies. For tax purposes, the voting trust certificate takes the place of the stock it represents. Tax transactions with respect to voting trust certificates are treated as transaction affecting the stock. A voting trust is not an association taxable as a corporation, because in itself it is not an enterprise for the carrying on of business for profit. Used correctly, the Voting Trust could be a useful tool for your corporation. The charge for Spiegel and Utrera, P.A. to form a Voting Trust for your company is only $767.95 if ordered at the time of incorporation.

Stock Options – Control Your Corporation while Raising Money
An option to buy stock gives the holder the exclusive right for a specified period of time to purchase stock at the price and under the terms and conditions specified in the agreement. Although the option grantor is bound by the option and generally cannot revoke it, the option holder is not bound unless he exercises the option. Options are regarded as capital assets if the underlying property constitutes, or if acquired would constitute, a capital asset in the hands of the holder. The receipt of consideration for the option is not taxable until the option either is exercised or has lapsed. If the option is exercised, the consideration is treated as part of the selling price and included in computing the gain or loss in the sale of the stock. Since stock is generally a capital asset, gain or loss on the sale would be entitled to capital treatment, either long-term or short-term. The holding period for qualification for long-term capital treatment is more than one year. The seller’s holding period for the stock sold includes the period during which the option is outstanding. Upon the failure of the option holder to exercise the option, if the consideration is forfeited, the option grantor generally realizes short-term capital gain, but income is not realized until the time of forfeiture. An option holder’s gain or loss upon a sale of the option, or loss upon a failure to exercise the option, would be entitled to capital gain treatment. The holding period of the option will determine whether long-term or short-term capital gain or loss is realized. For this purpose, if the loss is attributable to a failure to exercise the option, the option is deemed to have been sold on the day it expired. If the option is exercised, the consideration for the option is treated as part of the purchase price and is included in the option holder’s basis for the stock purchased. The purchaser’s holding period does not include the period curing which the option is outstanding.

Stock options can be utilized very effectively by an entrepreneur, for example:

The stock option can be an on-target management incentive or control device. Stock options can be used in employment agreements, consultants agreements, incentive agreements, as means of raising equity capital or borrowing funds. Spiegel and Utrera, P.A. will provide the Stock Option service for your business for only $367.95 if ordered at the time of incorporation.

Asset Protection / How to Protect Your Business
Return to Menu

As a new entrepreneur, you are going to invest a lot of time and money into your business. It is imperative that you protect yourself and your business from anything that could go wrong. One of the keys to being a successful entrepreneur is proactively planning for the worst situation, not reacting to the situation after it has happened. Below are items imperative for the protection of you and your business.

Indemnification Agreement – Don’t Take Chances: Protect Yourself from Personal Liability
We strongly recommend that you include special provisions in your Articles of Incorporation, which would provide vital protection requiring the Non-Profit Corporation to indemnify and hold harmless it's Directors and Officers from any actions they take on behalf of the organization. If a Director or Officer is ever sued for such actions, these provisions would require that the Non-Profit Corporation be held responsible and not that particular Director or Officer individually. This protection is especially important considering that without it a newly elected Director or Officer could be held liable for the decisions and actions carried out by the predecessors who once held the very same position. These important provisions and agreements cost only an additional $75 if ordered at the time of Incorporation.

The Inter Vivos Trust is relatively inexpensive to form, $350 if ordered at the time of establishing your Corporation.  The price includes one Trustee, one Successor Trustee and two Beneficiaries.  Additional Trustees, Successor Trustees or Beneficiaries are $50 each, if ordered at the time of establishing your Corporation.

If you are planning to have anyone work for your company, whether as an employee or independent contractor, you must make sure that you are in compliance with all Federal and California laws. Below are the most common items that you will require when hiring workers for your company.

California Unemployment Tax Account Number – Required By Law if you are Hiring Employees
This number is used to withhold California Unemployment Taxes from your Corporation's payroll. If you have any employees on the payroll, including yourself, you will need this account number. We can initiate the paperwork for this account number for you and deliver it with the corporation. The cost at the time of incorporating is only $35.

Employment Agreement - Get the Most Out of Your Employees
If you are using employees in your business, it is important to have a written Employment Agreement to document the conditions of Employment. An Employment Agreement can be very advantageous for a business and should be required for all employees, whether new or existing. It creates a clear understanding of the arrangement between the employee and the Corporation and provides protection for the business. The Employment Agreement also contains other important provisions:

The Employment Agreement is prepared in such a way that you can use it over and over again to avoid additional costs in the future. By having this Employment Agreement, the Corporation is given substantial clout in preventing an employee from joining a competitor, or competing against the Corporation and disclosing business secrets to anyone. The Agreement may be re-used by the Corporation as it hires additional employees, the cost of the Employment Agreement is just $150.

Employee Manual
When you hire employees in your business, it is important to have an Employee Manual to comprehensively spell out the policies of your business. Included within the Employee Manual are such topics as “Employment at Will”, Disability, Harassment and Discrimination, Standards of Conduct and the various rules relating thereto, Corrective Action and Termination, Wage and Salary Policies and Employee Communications. For a list of the Table of Contents of the Employee Manual, click here. The Employee Manual is intended to be a source document used at the business and would be updated by the business from time to time based upon its experiences with various situations. The preparation of the Employee Manual for your business costs only an additional $349.95 when ordered with the formation of your corporation and initially comes to you for review so you may have an opportunity to make any revisions before the Employee Manual is finalized by Spiegel & Utrera, P.A. and delivered to you electronically so you may print it as needed from time to time.

Employee Benefits and Policies
– Protect Yourself From Employee Disputes with a Comprehensive Policy
If you are using employees in your business, it is important to have written Benefits and Policies. Let us prepare your Employee Benefits and Policies. Unlike the Employment Agreement, the Employee Benefits and Policies creates an understanding of the entitlements of the employee relative to the policies of the business and provides protection for the business. The Employee Benefits and Policies will be customized for your business and are designed to cover:

By having the customized Employee Benefits and Policies, the business has clearly communicated to its employees the Employee Benefits and Policies in effect at the business and how the Employee Benefits and Policies are to be followed so that there are no surprises. For example, relating to an employee who leaves the business without giving adequate notice who then would only be entitled to be paid at the minimum wage for any time due and owing and forfeiting any vacation days, sick days, commissions, incentive compensation and/or bonuses.

The Employee Benefits and Policies may be re-used by the business as it hires additional employees. The cost of the Employee Benefits and Policies is just $167.95 if ordered now with the formation of your company.

Employee Warning Notice
Using an Employee Warning Notice can be a very effective management tool. Usually it is cumbersome to discipline an employee, situations do not always resolve themselves and frequently result in a verbal warning, however, if the situation repeats itself, this may call for a written Employee Warning Notice. The notice is designed to give a clear explanation of the issues involved which may cover a multitude of situations such as:

The Employee Warning Notice form is customized with the name of your business and, if ordered at the time of formation of your corporation, is just $49.95.

California New Hire Reporting – Required by Law
Federal law requires all California employers to report basic information about employees, who are newly hired, rehired, or who return to work after a separation of employment. You must submit a report for each newly hired employee. Failure to report new hires within 20 days of their hire date may result in civil penalties. There may be a $24 fine per each newly hired employee or, if the State determines there is a conspiracy between employer and employee not to report the penalty can be up to $500 per newly hired employee. We can provide you with a package of 6 New Hire Registration Forms for $35. The forms are customized with your Corporation’s information, and you may re-use them for each person you employ.
Independent Contractor Agreement
- What Your Business Must Have if Using Independent Contractors
There are many reasons for using Independent Contractors, however, simply verbally stating that a worker is an Independent Contractor is not enough according to the IRS. Certain criteria must be met. The IRS considers 11 factors in three specified areas: Behavioral Control, Financial Control and Type of Relationship. So, before you engage the services of an Independent Contractor, it is essential that you document that relationship with a written Independent Contractor's Agreement, otherwise the IRS could hold your Company and you personally liable for the Independent Contractor's Income Tax, Social Security, Medicare Tax and Federal Unemployment Tax, which should have been withheld. As a signatory on the check used to pay the Independent Contractor, you could be held personally liable for these taxes. The Independent Contractor’s Agreement also contains other important provisions:

For a detailed explanation of the Benefits of using Independent Contractors’ Agreements, including a breakdown of the 11 factors the IRS analyzes and Industry examples provided by the IRS, please refer to document 239 of this Free Faxback Service. We can provide an Independent Contractor's Agreement that covers all the legal requirements and many business advantages for your Company for only $150.

Start-Up Money for Your Business Return to Menu

Finding the money necessary to start your business is challenging. Unfortunately many new entrepreneurs don’t know how to find this money. Even worse, when they find money they don’t know how to properly document the transaction. Don’t let this happen to you. Review the options below on How To properly secure and document money for your business.
Lenders Agreement & Promissory Note for Non Profit Corporation - Properly Document Money Lent to the Business
Initially a non profit corporation needs a cash infusion. Additionally, the non profit corporation may require a continuing advance of funds for some time. How to get the money? A non profit corporation generally has two choices for obtaining additional money; (1) members of the non profit organization or others make cash donations or contributions to the non profit corporation or (2) members or others lend money to the non profit corporation. Lending money to the non profit corporation is the preferred method to advance money to the non profit corporation because the lender is seen as a creditor of the non profit corporation. The lending of money to the non profit corporation is accomplished with a Lenders Agreement and a Promissory Note. Both of these instruments together provide an initial amount of a loan to the non profit corporation and also provide for future advances of money the lender may make to the non profit corporation. In the event of failure of the non profit corporation, the loan will be fully tax deductible by the lender as a bad debt. The fee for a Lenders Agreement & Promissory Note for your non profit corporation, if ordered at the time of incorporating, is $75.

Security Agreement for Non Profit Corporation
- Protect Yourself if you Personally Funded the Loan for the Business
Once you have decided to use the Spiegel & Utrera, P.A. Lenders Agreement and Promissory Note, the next step is to collateralize the personal property assets of the company in favor of you, the lender with a Security Agreement. A Security Agreement is a contract between a lender and borrower. The Security Agreement gives the lender a security interest and the right to repossess personal property that a borrower has offered as collateral if a note is not paid per its agreed terms. This right is superior to all subsequent creditors provided the lien given by the Security Agreement is perfected. The Security Agreement available from Spiegel & Utrera, P.A. is complete and includes provisions relating to type of collateral being secured, address where collateral will be kept, executing further documents, events that shall constitute a default, assignment of secured collateral by holder, a listing of events that would constitute default by the borrower and the rights of the lender should the borrower default. Provided you have ordered the Spiegel & Utrera, P.A. Lenders Agreement and Promissory Note, the fee for the Security Agreement, if ordered at the time of incorporation, is an additional $75.

Perfecting the Lien Created by the Security Agreement - Uniform Commercial Code
Liens against personal property are perfected differently than liens on real property. The use of the phrase “personal property” does not mean property owned personally by the owner of a business. Instead, the term refers to all property used inside or outside of a business (with the exception of real property) including equipment, furniture, inventory, etc. To perfect a lien against personal property used in a business, strict adherence must be followed pursuant to the Uniform Commercial Code, documentation must be created, executed and filed with the appropriate government agencies. Once recorded, the Uniform Commercial Code makes a lien valid and serves as notice that the lien exists. Usually, the first recorded lien takes priority. Provided you have ordered the Spiegel & Utrera, P.A. Lenders Agreement and Promissory Note and the Spiegel & Utrera, P.A. Security Agreement, the documentation required to perfect the lien under the Uniform Commercial Code is $75, if ordered at the time of incorporation.

How To Build Credit and Credibility for Your Business Return to Menu

As a new business two items vital to your survival are credit and credibility. Customers feel secure dealing with a credible business. Potential investors and other lenders are more comfortable providing capital to a business with good credit. But how do you build credit and credibility for a business? Even more importantly, how can you build credit for your business if your personal credit is not spotless? Two of the easiest ways are discussed below.

D & B Number - Start Building Your Business Credit Immediately
According to Dun & Bradstreet, the D & B number is widely used by both commercial and federal entities and was adopted as the standard business identifier for federal electronic commerce as early as October 1994. The D & B number was also incorporated in the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) in April 1998 as the United States Federal Government’s contractor identification code for all procurement-related activities. The D & B number is also known as the D-U-N-S® number and remains with the corporation location to which is has been assigned even if it closes or goes out of business. With that in mind, it is important to have a physical location for your business when obtaining the D & B number. D & B also states that the D-U-N-S® number also “unlocks” a wealth of valued-added data associated with that entity, including the business name, physical and mailing addresses, trade styles (fictitious name, assumed name, alternate name or DBA), principal names, financial, payment experiences, industry classifications (SICs [Standard Industry Classification] and NAICS [North American Industry Classification System]), socio-economic status, government data and more. The D-U-N-S® number also links members of corporate family trees worldwide. If ordered at the time of forming your corporation, Spiegel & Utrera, P.A. will obtain your D & B number, also known as your D-U-N-S® number, for $50. If ordered later, the charge to obtain the D & B number, also known as your D-U-N-S® number, is $75.

Business Checking, Investment Account and Delayed Debit Gold MasterCard – Let us help You Establish a Business Banking Account
Let Spiegel & Utrera, P.A. help you set up your new business checking account. In addition to a business checking account, the account also comes with an investment account and a delayed debit Gold MasterCard. Depending upon the day in the billing cycle when a charge is made, your account will continue to earn interest for up to 30 days from the date of purchase or until the balance of the debit card for that period is charged to your account. In addition, with this account you have the ability to make deposits and withdraw funds from over 800 bank locations and other financial institutions in the United States. Multiple delayed debit Gold MasterCard's are available for use by your employees. Internet bill payments are free. No minimum balance is required to maintain your business checking account, however, there is an initial deposit of $100,000 which is required to open the Business Checking, Investment Account and Delayed Debit Gold MasterCard. If you order your business checking, investment account and/or delayed debit Gold MasterCard from Spiegel & Utrera, P.A. at the time of forming your Corporation, the fee is $249.95 to prepare all the necessary documentation and follow up until such time as your business checking, investment account and/or delayed debit Gold MasterCard has been established. If ordered after forming your Corporation, the fee is $449.95.

Our staff has many years of experience representing Tenants. Having your lease reviewed BEFORE you sign on the dotted line can save you thousands of dollars.

In our review we address issues such as:

Business Purchase Review:
One thing is very clear - the acquisition of a business can provide the gateway to substantial wealth. At Spiegel & Utrera, P.A. , we have represented buyers in many business acquisitions and are ready to help you. For small to medium businesses, purchases are usually structured in one of two ways: Asset Purchase or Corporate Stock Purchase.

Asset Purchase – Generally Liabilities are NOT Assumed
When assets are acquired, the purchaser buys all or specified assets of the selling entity and may assume none, some, or all of the liabilities of the business. An asset purchase may be more attractive to you since you may be able to pick and choose the specific items desired and can attempt to avoid assuming debts and liabilities of the selling entity. An asset acquisition is also designed to reduce your exposure to possible unknown or contingent liabilities. When assets are acquired, appropriate documents must be prepared in order to effectuate the transfer of title to each particular asset which is being transferred. This can involve a great deal of paper work and may require approvals and consents from various other parties, depending on the entity which is being purchased. We recommend faxing any agreement BEFORE you sign to (800) 520-7800, at no obligation to you, and an attorney can advise you over the phone.

Corporate Stock Purchase – When the longevity and corporate status of the entity are Valuable
You can acquire control of another company through the acquisition of the shares of stock owned by the seller's shareholders. In this type of acquisition control of the acquired entity is obtained through stock ownership rather than a direct acquisition of the assets. With a corporate stock purchase corporate liabilities are assumed by the buyer. The legal and corporate status of the acquired entity remains the same following the acquisition. If possible, an Asset Purchase is usually preferable for a buyer due to the assumed liability. However some purchases may benefit from the acquisition of corporate stock. For example, where beneficial carryover tax attributes are available, a stock transaction may be desirable for you. When favorable insurance and employment ratings can be retained, they may also be a consideration for a stock transaction. Although one of the main nontax considerations for you in desiring an asset purchase is the risk of being saddled with unknown and contingent liabilities, the impact of this problem can sometimes be ameliorated by the establishment of holdback arrangements. Such arrangements typically involve escrowing of funds, rights to offset payments on seller financed promissory notes, execution of nonnegotiable promissory notes to evidence seller financing, and provisions in the sale agreement in delaying the payment of the full purchase price until certain contingencies have been satisfied.

In a typical stock acquisition the purchaser acquires the stock from the corporate shareholders in exchange for cash, notes, stock, other property, or a combination of these items. In most cases you will want to purchase the entire outstanding stock of the seller; however, there may be situations where it would be advantageous to have a minority shareholder retain an interest in the corporation being sold. For example, if a key management figure has an ownership interest in the corporation, it may be beneficial for the corporation for him to retain that interest in order to maintain continuity of management and the value of a key employee. The psychological and economic advantages of having an important employee continue to own a stake of the business, even after new ownership of the majority of stock, should be carefully weighed.

Simplicity is perhaps the key nontax feature of a stock acquisition. Since nothing other than corporate stock of the corporation is transferred, the often cumbersome preparation and execution of documents of transfer are not necessary. Although the selling shareholders must agree to sell their corporate stock, no shareholder votes are necessary, nor are there any shareholders' dissenters' or appraisal rights. The sale of corporate stock will normally avoid sales taxes, although California does impose a tax on the transfer of stock.

It must be emphasized that the mechanical ease of accomplishing the actual corporate stock transfer should not lull you into believing that an investigation into the corporation is not necessary. To the contrary, the investigation should be at least as, if not more, comprehensive than one undertaken in the course of an asset transaction. It is perhaps most crucial in regard to liabilities, since you face the risk imposed by disclosed, undisclosed, fixed, contingent, and unknown liabilities. Although you do not assume such liabilities personally, they nonetheless run with the corporation and will affect the assets of the business. The degree and extent of the risk associated with the transaction, and the likelihood of liabilities which have not surfaced, should have a direct bearing on the negotiated purchase price. We strongly recommend that you fax your purchase agreement, at no obligation to you, to (800) 520-7800 BEFORE you sign it and one of Spiegel And Utrera, P.A.’s experienced attorneys will be able to advise you over the phone.

Franchise Agreement Review – Is That Franchise Too Good to be True?
A franchise is a method of distributing goods and services by licensing a business idea or concept to another. The "franchisor" is the legal owner of the franchised business' concepts and ideas, including names and logos. The "franchisee" is the individual or entity that purchases the right to use these concepts and ideas from the Franchisor. Studies reveal that franchised businesses experience lower default rates than independent businesses and generally have a somewhat easier time securing financing because the Franchisor typically has an established trademark and goodwill, as well as marketplace experience. But is a franchise worth the cost and restrictions? Many new entrepreneurs incorrectly believe that purchasing a franchise will lead to immediate success and profits with little to no risk. This is rarely the case. When considering a franchise there are many aspects that you need to examine. One good indicator of the potential success of a franchise is to compare your start-up cost with the past advertising and promotional expenditures of the franchisor. For example, a fast food franchise that has a start-up cost of $50,000 where the franchisor has invested $500 million in advertising and promotion would probably be a better purchase than another fast food franchise that has a lower start-up cost but the franchisor has only invested $10 million in advertising and promotion. Likewise, remember that higher price does not necessarily mean less risk and lower price does not mean greater potential reward. You must review all materials and disclosures carefully and seek legal advice. Although franchises usually require up-front fees and are heavily regulated by Federal and state agencies because of their inherent risks, a franchisee operating under one trademark can achieve levels of brand awareness, market penetration and purchasing power that business people operating individually could not ordinarily achieve. Generally, a franchise agreement grants to the franchisee a limited license and right to use and operate a recognizable outlet within a defined territory by utilizing a pre-existing business system and proprietary marks. The franchise agreement allows the franchisor to carefully control the obligations and responsibilities of the franchisee. It is imperative to have the agreement reviewed by an attorney BEFORE you sign it. The attorneys of Spiegel and Utrera, P.A. have extensive experience in Franchise Agreements and will review your Franchise Agreement. Just fax your agreement to (800) 520-7800, at no obligation to you, and an attorney can advise you over the phone.

In our review we address issues such as:

A franchise is an excellent way to get started as a new entrepreneur, but it does not guarantee success. You must have a Franchise Agreement that works to your advantage. Let Spiegel and Utrera, P.A. review your agreement and get your franchise started on the path to success!
