There a number of classifications of business entities in Colorado. The most common include:

  • General partnership – A partnership in which all associates participate fully in the operation of the business, are equally liable for all actions, and share equally in profits and losses, regardless of the actual contributions made.
  • Limited partnership – A partnership in which one party (made up of one or more people) called general partners, having unlimited liability, manage the business and, another party (of one or more people) called limited partners, contribute capital and share in the profits.
  • Limited liability company – A company in which the members and managers aren’t liable for a debt or obligation of the company.
  • Limited liability partnership – These are partnerships where a partner is not liable for the negligent actions of other partners or employees not under the partner’s supervision. These are organized pursuant to applicable statute that limits the personal liability of the partners and provides that the partnership is liable as an entity for debts and obligations incurred by the limited liability partnership.
  • Corporation – An entity that’s treated as a separate, artificial person apart and distinct from the shareholders who own it.
