The Business ShieldTM program is an innovative, convenient, and cost effective way to ensure your business entity continues to protect you, your family, and your assets. This unique package of services allows you to focus your time and energy on running your business, rather than chasing after the paperwork that it (and the government) demands.
The Business ShieldTM program is a formal maintenance, education, and updating program designed to keep your business entity current and legally effective.
Do you need The Business ShieldTM?
Getting your business up and running is just the start of a successful enterprise. Each year, you must complete important tasks to protect your business and stay in compliance with state laws. You may need Business ShieldTM if you don’t have ready answers to the questions:
- Ensure required meetings are held and properly documented?
- Properly document your business’ actions?
- File the required reports with the State of Texas?
- Maintain compliance of Federal forms under the Corporate Transparency Act?
- Help ensure your business records support your entity’s structure in a lawsuit setting?
As a The Business ShieldTM member, we will
- Review your organizational documents to ensure that they are current and comply with Texas law
- Prepare notices and minutes of required meetings
- Coordinate with your CPA the filings of periodic reports required by the Texas Comptroller
- Provide assistance with federal reporting requirements to the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network
- Provide you with direction on how to title newly acquired business assets
- Provide a monthly electronic newsletter on relevant estate and business topics
- Provide you with invaluable counsel on how to stay in compliance with the law
- Provide you with a copy of the Texas Asset Protection Handbook, an essential tool to help you keep your assets safe from seizure
- Alert you when it may be appropriate to update your documents to incorporate new business strategies
Your Investment in a Successful Business
For just a few dollars a day, you can ensure that your business is a smoothly running operation in full compliance with Texas law. This is most likely a deductible business expense, too!
What if I am Not in Compliance?
Not staying in compliance with Texas and Federal law can be devastating to your business (and the rest of your estate). A failure to properly document the actions of your company or file the appropriate government reports can be factors in whether or not your business is dissolved. Ultimately, your Charter with the State can be forfeited, which can open you up to personal liability for the acts of your now “former” company, including unpaid taxes, debts, and adverse court judgments, and potential fines and criminal charges.
More than likely you created your company to avoid those risks, but without proper maintenance, you could suffer a catastrophic calamity for not keeping your company documents up to date.
