Q. How can i transfer or record ownership of an s-corp?
A: It depends on a number of factors. First, we would need to know what the legal entity is - an LLC or Corporation. An s-Corp is a tax designation. You should consult a business lawyer in your area to make sure any transfer is done correctly.
Q. Do I need an additional consulting/IP agreement for work done by engineers on Upwork?
A: I would want my own agreement with a contractor. You want to be sure you own the IP and that the contractor is not using someone else’s work. There are many considerations that need to be looked at with this type of arrangement. Just a brief look at that link, it looks like optional provisions and looks to be governed under Delaware law.
Q. I have a small remodeling company, I signed a proposal for a company to place concrete, I found a lower priced company.
