How to Chart the Company Structure
Businesses are usually structured on one of the three basic
business structures: Sole Proprietorship, Partnership or a Corporation.
A sole proprietorship is an unincorporated business
owned only by one person. It's the most simple and basic form of business
organization. Without you, the owner, the business wouldn't exist. As the
sole business owner, you take on all the responsibility, liabilities and
risks. Of course, you also completely benefit from the profits.
A partnership is a business established by two or more
people. Each person contributes something to the business - whether it's
money, labor, skill, or property. In turn, the partners share the profits
along the lines of the investment input.
Corporations are businesses where the shareholders
transfer money and/or property for the company's capital stock. Profits of
the corporation are distributed according to investment in the capital
stock. A corporation can take some of the same deductions as a sole

Usually you define your business structure in the
executive summary. Your organizational summary includes an organizational
chart. You'll show each person in the organization, the reporting structure
of each person in the company. In the narrative you detail the
responsibilities of each person. You should include: names of the owners,
percentage of ownership and extent of involvement in the company.
If any of these individuals are involved in the
management of the company, also include their resumes that list: Company
responsibilities, Education, Experience and skills, Qualified achievements,
Prior employment and Compensation.
List all the other employees of the company, the
positions they hold and their responsibility.
If you have multiple locations, show the structure.
Where is the corporate office located? Are there satellite locations, do you
plan to expand within the city, state, nation or internationally?
The business structure section of the business plan
gives basic information about your company and the management staff. It's an
essential part of the plan, because it shows the care and thought you've put
into your business and how it is structured.
