Default Individual consulting - self employment options

Hi Folks,

I recently got my green card and am trying to collect some information about self-employment. I am a software consultant & have been working for a middle man for 8 yrs now mainly doing consulting work via corp-2-corp. Now i want to become independent and cut inbetween layers and try to work either directly for a end client or for the middle men.

I was thinking about working on 1099 & create a company where I am the only person working.

Can you please share the pro's and cons of this. How does the employer tax part of it work?

If i work for a company, since I have a green card, if there is down time during consulting I can claim unemployment benefit, but If i start my own company and do consulting through that, then there is no concept of unemployment - am i right?

Please share your experiences.

And where to start to find out how to start my own company.

Any links or book recommendations, please suggest.

Thanks
Dreamer.

Hi, You posted this back in Feb. Any updates yet? some basic info about 1099, W2, Corp-to-Corp here: Consultants: W-2, 1099 or Corp-to-Corp? | BizTaxTalk
What is a 1099 Contractor?

This one is a detailed article about 1099 in IT: Raible Designs | How do you become an independent consultant and get contracts?

I'm exploring these options too. Keep me posted. Good Luck!

Default Empoyment Options

Hey man i think this is not a good idea. If you want to start your own business you should look to start your career online like you can use ODesk and start your career as a free lancer. I was also working in a law firm but now i have started by own business in which i help people who are having stepparent adoption
issues. I started this business because i like this field and have got a lot of knowledge in this field so you should look into urself and find in which you have knowledge and then just do it....

I think that the best way to start is from a Freelancing website. This way you can build a clientèle which can sometimes be hard.
