Working with SRG has been an excellent experience. We used them to help us create our entities and then for entity support the following year. The SRG team is very knowledgeable, professional and easy to work with. The work they did was very thorough and completed in a timely manner. We would definitely recommend them to others.
— Michael M.
SRG is fantastic. They worked with us and explained all our questions. They had meetings with our accountant to coordinate the setting up of the entity and S-corp. We were very happy with all of their explanations and guidance. The final binder we received was great to keep all of our information in and make sure we had everything set up correctly. (...)
— Sharon B.
The experience in setting up an entity was a good growth experience for me in investigating deeply the options that we have available with all the complexities that exist. (...) SRG was helpful in giving me the confidence that the path chosen was the right one and provided the flexibility that we will need down the road.

Entity Maintenance Program FAQs

Here are the most common questions Financial Advisors ask about maintaining their entity. Have a question not listed here? Reach out and let us know how we can help.

  • What is the difference between SRG's entity support service and the entity maintenance program?

    Our entity support service helps you navigate the nuances and challenges of establishing a new entity or restructuring an existing entity to meet your short- and long-term business goals. Once the entity has been established, it should be properly maintained to keep your company organized and reduce potential risks such as personal liability exposure, compliance violations, and disputes. The EMP will help you meet such maintenance requirements.

  • Who is the entity maintenance program for?

    All business owners who use a formal entity such as a limited liability company or corporation to operate their business.

  • Do I need formal resolutions if I operate a single-owner entity?

    Yes, resolutions provide a formal record of the decisions made by the entity’s owners and/or officers and document any key actions taken by the company.

    They are essential in demonstrating compliance with legal requirements and the entity’s governance documents.

    Formal resolutions provide protection in case of a dispute and evidence that the company had proper authorization to act.

  • What is the timeframe for this service?

    The service period for this program corresponds with a full calendar year and renews automatically, unless the program is cancelled by providing 30 days written notice prior to the end of the current calendar year.

    Clients who engage in the middle of the calendar year, therefore, need to determine whether they would like the service period to start as of January 1 of the current year so that they can get caught up on their maintenance requirements or as of January 1 of the following year.

  • What do I need to provide?

    You will be required to submit information regarding the entity by completing a questionnaire to ensure we start the program using your most current information.

    We will also request a copy of any existing entity documents, such as Articles of Organization, the Operating Agreement, Buy-Sell Agreement, and ownership ledgers, so that we can properly reference them in the deliverables we create for you.

  • Who would I be working with?

    To ensure quick turnaround times, most communication will be made via email or myCompass, which is our online client portal. But rest assured, your requests and consulting needs are handled by our team of experts.
