What is a Corporation

A corporation can transact any lawful business in the same way an individual person would be able to. It is a separate and distinct entity. A corporation can enter into contracts, conduct business and can own real and personal property.

Advantages of Incorporation

The main advantage of incorporating is the protection it provides its shareholders. It is a separate legal entity that incurs its own debts and liabilities that normally are not the responsibility of the shareholders or officers of the corporation. This personal liability protection is one of the main reasons why people file corporations.

What is an S Corporation?

An S Corporation is actually an election that must be completed and filed within 75 days of your Incorporation filing with the IRS. It is a tax status. All corporations are C Corporations until you elect the S status. As a S Corporation the income of the corporation rolls over to the shareholders and the shareholders pay the tax on their personal tax returns. This allows the avoidance of paying corporate tax on the income of the corporation and then paying tax again on the same money when it is distributed as dividends to the stockholders. This avoids double taxation.

Some of the limits of an S Corporation are:

  • All shareholders have to be US citizens or have a US taxpayer ID number.
  • A S Corporation cannot be owned by another Corporation
  • You can not have more then 75 shareholders
  • Only one class of stock

This election is for small businesses. It allows you some tax advantages. You can switch from an S corporation to a C Corporation when your business outgrows the limits.

What is a Corporate Book or Kit?

The Corporate book or sometimes called the Corporate Kit includes 20 custom stock certificates with your corporations name, stock transfer ledger, minute forms for organizational meetings, standard set of bylaws, and a metal embossing seal and many other forms you may need throughout the life of your Corporation. It comes in a three ring black binder with a slipcase with your name on the binding.

How will I know if my corporation name is available?

Once you submit the on-line form we will do a preliminary check to see if the name is available. If it is taken we will contact you about alternatives. You can use any name you want as long as it is available.

As always the Division of Corporations has the last say on the availability of any name.

What is a Limited Liability Company?

A Limited Liability Company, most commonly referred to, as a LLC is a separate legal entity from the owners. The owner of the LLC are referred to as members. Like the corporation, the LLC owners is protected from personal liability.

By default, an LLC is taxed as a pass-through entity. The profits and losses of the LLC are passed directly to the members and they pay the taxes on their personal tax return based on their individual tax rates.

What are the advantages of an LLC?

An LLC has the advantage of being a hybrid between a corporation and a partnership. The main advantage of a LLC is that most states have fewer requirements for an LLC in comparison to a corporation.

The taxation of a limited liability company is comparable to an S corporation in that the income of the business will rollover to the individual owners.

An LLC can have an unlimited number of owners

The owners do not have to be US citizens.

The LLC can be owned by another LLC or a Corporation.
