Incorporating allows the directors, officers, and shareholders to separate and protect their personal assets in case of a lawsuit or claims against a business entity. In an properly managed and structured company, directors, shareholders and officers have limited liability for outstanding business debts and obligations. This is one of the primary benefits to incorporating.
Corporations benefit from many tax advantages, including tax-deductible business expenses.

 

For example, medical insurance for families may be fully deductible. Retirement plans, such as a tax-deferred trust can be set up as fringe benefit and may be tax deductible for the corporation. Losses are fully deductible for a corporation. Compare this to an individual running a sole proprietorship that must prove there was a profit motive before deducting losses. Also, any profits can be left in the corporation for further growth, and this could have tax advantages.


S-Corporations have the added benefit of pass-through taxation.

Owners report their share of profit and loss on their individual tax returns. In general, S corporations do not pay any federal income taxes. Instead, the corporation’s income or losses are divided among and passed through to its shareholders. The shareholders must then report the income or loss on their own individual income tax returns.

This eliminates double taxation of income: Income is not taxed twice; once as corporate income (profits) and again as individual dividend income.

Incorporating your company also services to improve your credibility among customers, suppliers and lenders.
One major benefit of incorporating your business is the enhanced credibility of having an “Inc.” or “Incorporated” after your business name. This distinction gives your business with the instant credibility and authority associated with owning an incorporated company. Potential consumers, partners and vendors may be more inclined to do business with an incorporated company over one who is not.
Investment opportunities: The company can attract investors through issuing shares of stock. In certain situations, equity financing is more advantageous than debt financing.
Because an LLC is a separate entity on its own, it, can apply for and build credit separately from the partners’ personal credit. This provides another great benefit to a limited liability company because it helps protects each member’s personal credit and makes bad personal credit less of an issue.

An S corporation (sometimes referred to as an S Corp) is a special type of corporation created through an IRS tax election. An eligible domestic corporation can avoid double taxation (once to the corporation and again to the shareholders) by electing to be treated as an S corporation.


To be considered an S corp, you must first create a business as a corporation in the state where it is headquartered. According to the IRS, S corporations are “considered by law to be a unique entity, separate and apart from those who own it.” This limits the financial liability for which you (the owner, or “shareholder”) are responsible. Nevertheless, liability protection is limited – S corps do not necessarily shield you from all litigation such as an employee’s tort actions as a result of a workplace incident.

What makes the S corp different from a traditional corporation (C corp) is that profits and losses can pass through to your personal tax return. Consequently, the business is not taxed itself. Only the shareholders are taxed. There is an important caveat, however: any shareholder who works for the company must pay him or herself “reasonable compensation.” Basically, the shareholder must be paid fair market value, or the IRS might reclassify any additional corporate earnings as “wages.”

C Corporations file IRS form 1120 to report corporate income to the Internal Revenue Service. The IRS taxes company profits at corporate tax rates and dividends paid to shareholders at individual tax rates. For this reason, you may hear tax professionals refer to “double taxation” of a C Corporation.


C Corporations can elect “pass-through” taxation by applying to the IRS for status as a Subchapter S Corporation. The S Corporation provides the same protection from personal liability. However, owners can report their share of profit and loss in the company on their individual tax returns. The S Corporation files IRS form 1120s to report income. Entities that have assets in excess of $10 million or file over 250 forms each year must file these s corp forms online.

S Corporations have a number of restrictions. Most notably, only U.S. citizens or permanent residents may own an S Corporation. An S Corporation may not have more than 100 shareholders.

While we can’t give legal advice, the benefits of forming an S Corporation include:

-potentially less tax liability, and reduced self employment tax
-less risk from government audits, compared to a sole proprietorship.
-limited personal liability for business debts.
-ability to deduct the cost of benefits as a business expense.
-opportunity to raise additional funds through the sale of stock.

One possible tax advantage of an S Corp is pass-through taxation. Corporations can elect “pass-through” taxation by applying to the IRS for status as a Subchapter S Corporation. The S Corporation provides the same protection from personal liability as a C Corporation. However, owners of an S Corporation can report their share of profit and loss in the company on their individual tax returns. An S Corporation files IRS Form 1120s to report income.


S Corporations have a number of restrictions. Most notably, only U.S. citizens or permanent residents may own an S Corporation. An S Corporation may not have more than 100 shareholders.

The company is owned by shareholders, who elect directors. The directors set a vision for the corporation and are responsible for the management of the corporation. The officers and managers hired by the directors are responsible for carrying out the vision on a day-to-day basis. This is the same structure as C Corporations.
Yes. State laws require all corporations to maintain a registered address with the Secretary of State in each state where they do business. The person or company located at that address, known as the Registered Agent, must remain available during all business hours. A Registered Agent receives and forwards important legal documents and state correspondence on behalf of the business. We offer this important service for just $99 per year.
There is always the possibility of requesting S Corp status for your LLC. Your attorney can advise you on the pros and cons. You’ll have to make a special election with the IRS to have the LLC taxed as an S corp using Form 2553. And you must file it before the first two months and fifteen days of the beginning of the tax year in which the election is to take effect.

The LLC remains a limited liability company from a legal standpoint, but for tax purposes it’s treated as an S corp. Be sure to contact your state’s income tax agency where you will file the election form to learn about tax requirements.

Similar to an individual’s Social Security Number, a federal Employer Identification Number (EIN) identifies a business for tax purposes. Also called a Federal Tax ID, the EIN is issued by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).


The IRS requires corporations, Limited Liability Companies (LLCs) operating as partnerships, and all employers to obtain an EIN. This number is used for all tax filings the business makes. Banks, lenders, and business partners may also request your EIN.

An EIN and a Federal Tax Identification Number are the same, just different terminology for the same number.

The IRS usually requires corporations and Limited Liability Companies (LLCs) operating as partnerships to obtain an EIN. Any business that hires employees, including sole proprietorships and single-member LLCs, must also apply for an EIN.

Banks may require an EIN in order to open a business checking account. Also, you may need to list your EIN on business license, permit, and tax registration applications.

We can obtain an EIN for you for just $89. You can order it together when you form an S Corporation through our website (click get started now). You can also order the EIN separately here.

The first number is for standard processing, the second is for expedited. Most starts charge an extra fee for expedited processing. These are only our best estimates based on experience and times may vary case by case, state by state.

Most states require Corporations to file annual reports and pay franchise taxes to maintain their good standing. Failure to file annual reports and pay franchise taxes can result in fines, notices, and the inability to conduct business. Some states have additional publication requirements (NY, FL, and certain counties) for LLCs, Corporations, and DBAs. It is your responsibility to maintain the business after incorporating to stay compliant with local, state, and federal law.

Kevin Song, Dulcet Fashion Inc.
My business partner and I decided start an LLC with S corporation benefits and did not know the first thing about setting it up. After looking at the paperwork involved we were very unsure about doing it ourselves.

Thankfully we found EZ incorporate early on. They broke down the process into step by step pieces that were easy for us amateurs to understand.
