My mother and I are looking to open a spa/massage place real soon. We both have experience in the massage field and she currently has her own massage business( sole propieator) I do all the behind-the-scene stuff such as paper work and such. My question is, how would we set up the business in the legal sense. She is a licensed thrapist and has a business permit for her current place. The new place will be atleast 1500-2000sq ft Both of us will run it. How would the business be structured so both of us splits 50/50 ownership and profit? whats the best for a spa/massage establsihment with 2 owners? Partnership? LLC? whats the pros/cons of each? thanks!
